Imagine your home smelling great at all times – wouldn’t it be amazing? A fresh-smelling home is the dream of many people, but different factors can get in the way. Odors from the fridge, trashcan or carpet can easily destroy the nice atmosphere in your home and really ruin your day. Other things can get in the way of a fresh-smelling home as well. For example, preparing onions for lunch can make your home smell unpleasant for a few days, and don’t even get us started on garlic! In order to subdue the smell, people buy air fresheners which are only a temporary solution and contain a variety of chemicals which can harm your lungs and health. Luckily, it can all be neutralized with a simple home mixture.
The DIY natural air freshener you can see below will make your home smell great and neutralize any odor in it. It can be easily prepared, and once you try it, all your friends will be jealous of you. Here’s what you need to do:
- Spray bottle
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 3 tablespoons baking softener
- 3 cups water
Take the spray bottle and add the fabric softener in, then add the baking soda and water, close the bottle and shake well. Spray the mixture all around your home – you can even safely use it on sofa and curtains. It will give off a nice scent and make your home smell great for a long time.
Here’s a recipe for a DIY fabric softener you’re going to love:
- 10 gr. baking soda
- 150-200 ml. warm water
- 20 drops of your favorite essential oil
- 800 ml. ACV
Get a large plastic container and pour the hot water in, then add the baking soda and ACV. Wait for the reaction to pass, then add the essential oil in the end. Stir well, leave the mixture for a few minutes and transfer it to a bottle. Whenever you need to use it, pour a bit of the natural softener in your washing machine. It works better than the commercial products and will leave a long-lasting scent on your clothes.
