I live in a one bedroom apartment which unfortunately only has two windows. Needless to say, air circulation is bad and odors often linger. I have tried the "Air Wick Wizard" brand air freshener, which claims to "neutralize" odors instead of merely covering them up, but I think it only makes it worse.

What is a good way to keep my apartment smelling nice? Perhaps a few of those car fresheners? Or those plug-in type fresheners? I guess another thing I can try to do is to buy a fan to help with the circulation a little, although it seems kind of silly to buy a fan when it will be very cold soon. How about those air filteration gizmos... are any worth the price and maintence fees, and if so how much are we talking about here? I think a long time ago my former roommate and I tried to vacuum the carpet with baking soda or something similar... would that help?

Get the carpet sprinklies for your carpet for every time you vacuum. What does it smell like exactly? Leave the windows open whenever you can. Box fan in the window?

Mostly food odors. Sometimes I don't take out the trash enough or don't do the dishes for a few days and things putrify. So those glade plug-ins are pretty strong?

plug-ins are pretty strong at first, especially at close range. my favorite scent is tropical mist
