UK homes smell of toast and washing powder

275x250.jpgToast, perfume and washing powder are the smells most likely to hit you when you walk through the door of the average British home.
Researchers have pin-pointed the aromas which they claim make a house a home, with washing powder making up 34 per cent of the scent.
Freshly made toast accounts for another 22 per cent of the scent, while perfume makes up 17 per cent.
Other smells which will typically hit you as you step through front doors around Britain include 10 per cent last night's dinner, 12 per cent flowers, 5 per cent damp coffee and pets.
Interestingly the smell of toast even manages to permeate the homes of people who never eat toast.
