Are you the type of person who likes to put off the cleaning at home for as long possible? Maybe "likes" is a strong word, but the combination of laziness and a busy lifestyle usually means that it is an inevitability. Hopefully, there isn't too much of a mess that it takes up a huge chunk of your weekend, but as the saying goes: "You've got to do it sometime."
On the days that we dedicate to cleaning up around the house, it's always a good idea to address the state of your washroom and kitchen. Not only do they typically fall victim to our personal messes, they also are one of the first places that quickly start to smell really bad. Even after you clean those areas up, the pungent smell can be so strong that it will linger for days on end.
To address the smell, it's a good idea to spray some Febreze, burn some incense, pop open an air freshener, or light a scented candle. Sadly, the ones that are available for purchase are almost always expensive and are a huge rip-off. Who has money to get a fresh supply of refills every week? Thankfully, there is a DIY alternative. Using the power of essential oils and a few other household items, you can make your very own air freshener for just pennies on the dollar! Don't worry about breaking the bank the next time you want your home to smell great. See the video below to learn more.
What you will need:
- Essential oils of your preference
- A Mason jar
- A cloth that you don't mind poking holes into
- Baking soda
- A knife
