If you or a member of your household has respiratory issues, or if you’re concerned about the danger of burning incense or spilling liquid wax, there are other ways to freshen the air in your home naturally!
Here’s some of our favorites:
Put coffee grounds through the garbage disposal occasionally, and even at the bottom of a new garbage bag in the kitchen to freshen these typically stinky areas.
Dried herbs and flowers including rosemary, lavender and roses are a great way to provide a subtle hint of outdoor freshness in your bedroom, office, or any other areas where you need to relax and feel clear-headed.
Did you know that houseplants actually help clean the air? They DO! Wow, just having a few great indoor houseplants can help increase the amount oxygen and fresh air in your home or office, and they provide a touch of beauty too!
Simmering potpourri is a great way to “personalize” your air freshening. Rummage through your refrigerator and spice rack, and put some of your favorite flavors in a pot of simmering water. Using your favorite scent combinations like apple and cinnamon, oranges and cloves, or mint and lemon, you’ll be surprised how much you’ll enjoy the natural scent of ingredients you already have right in your kitchen.
Vinegar is a great way to get rid of food smells and combat bacteria at the same time. A solution of white vinegar to four parts water in a spray bottle can be spritzed into the air to combat strong odors like onion and garlic.
