Ever got back from a quick trip to the store to find yourself hit by a sudden, unpleasant odor in your house? Yuck! Maybe that odor was caused by something that happened while you were out ... or maybe it was always there. Humans have a mechanism called sensory adaptation, which allows us to tune out any constant stimuli. That's how you can sometimes tune out the noise of your air conditioner, or even a construction site down the road. It's great in some ways, but when it comes to noticing odors, it can backfire. Imagine having guests over while not having any idea that your house smells bad!
Clearly, general cleanliness is a must, but when that doesn't help a lot of folks reach for air fresheners like Febreze, which aren't exactly cheap over time. Luckily, Amy from the Aim To Create YouTube channel has some perfect solutions that'll not only make your house smell great and look stylish, they're also very budget-friendly and require minimal time and effort.
- A used candle jar
- A mason jar with tin lid
- Baking soda
- Essential oils (choose your favorite)
- Tea light (optional)
Watch the video below for the details on how to make these awesome air fresheners!
