Easy hack to make your home smell like fresh baking goes viral

Must See 21/03/2022

As the autumn weather starts to creep in, we're reminded there are few things better than coming in from the wind and rain to the smell of freshly baked cookies or cakes. 

Trouble is, finding the time to do the actual baking can be easier said than done. But what is the internet for, if not giving us ridiculously simple solutions to problems we didn't even know we had? 

One interior designer has shared the secret to getting making your house smell delightful without any of the fuss - using just one ingredient you probably already have in your cupboard. 

Tatum Culhane took to TikTok to upload a clip of her life hack: She simply pre-heats the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit - about 150 degrees celsius for us Kiwis - pops a bit of vanilla extract in an oven-safe bowl and leaves it in there for around 20 minutes. 

Of course, you could always stick to a classic scented candle, but this option might be a bit safer if you've got little ones running around - although if that's the case, you might want to pick up some baked treats from the supermarket to avoid disappointment!
