Life is stinky. Period.
I wanted to share with you my DIY Air Freshener that’s just three ingredients…most of which you probably already own! You can download and print the labels below and try it for yourself. Take that yucky aerosol cans!
The ingredients are water, baking soda, and lemon essential oil! That’s it. This 4 oz-er of essential oil should last you, oh I don’t know…forever. My favorite essential oil is lemon, but you can be fancy 😉 You could try peppermint during the holidays or your favorite scent. You can find smaller quantities at craft stores, but they are more expensive over time.
I also use essential oil for a bunch of other cleaning, so it’s multi-purpose!

Some of you may ask about this, so I wanted to clear the air (so to speak 😉 ) Because you are using baking soda, you might notice a slight, white residue on surfaces you are spraying. This is a GOOD THING. This product is best used on upholstery and carpets (I don’t recommend it for hardwood or tile floors, although it won’t hurt them). The baking soda will continue to trap odors after the lemon scent has dissipated, and the very fine white powder will come up when you clean, dust, or vacuum. Baking soda is sprinkled on carpets and upholstery by professional cleaning companies all the time to trap odors. You probably won’t even notice it unless you have very dark fabric/carpets!
