Removing odors from your home is serious business. Let’s be frank: who wants to come home to a funky house? Whether the funky stench is coming from the bathroom, bedroom or kitchen, there are plenty of simple DIY Odor Eliminators to rid your home of those funky scents.
Check out these simple DIY Odor Eliminators:
1. Tea Bags
Think of tea bags as a new age potpourri. By hanging a few of your favorite flavors around the house, you’ll take your home from stinky to wonderfully aromatic. I’d recommend Hibiscus tea bags. The scent is both fruity, yet floral: the perfect combination for any bathroom.
2. Lavender Spray
Instead of purchasing those expensive lavender air freshening sprays, just make your own! All you need are 3 simple items: water, lavender essential oil, and a spray bottle. Fill the spray bottle about 3/4 full. Add about 15 to 20 drops of essential oil. If you prefer a stronger scent, add more! Don’t have a spray bottle on hand? Clean and reuse one that’s lying around the house, or try your local pharmacy (they often sell empty spray bottles). Be sure to shake the mixture before spraying any linens or rooms.
Apples Lemons & Oranges
You know when you walk into a room and can instantly tell when someones been eating an orange? Well that powerful orange scent is a wonderful way to remove odors from your home! Surprise! Start by boiling a medium pot of water. Add about 2 cups of lemon and orange peels to the boiling water. The summery scent will carry throughout your home in no time!
4. Baking Soda
Using baking soda as a DIY odor eliminator is a wonderful trick that has been around for YEARS. Plagued with a stinky trash can? Pour a layer of baking soda in the bottom of the can and into the bag. The baking soda absorbs the nasty smells before they can reach our noses. The same trick can be used in your refrigerators, behind toilets, and in any room! Simply leave an open container in the stinky location and enjoy your odor free home!
5. Coffee Grounds
If you are looking for a way to give your home a fresh, invigorating scent, look no further than coffee grounds! Leave a few cups of grounds throughout your home for that unmistakeable coffee shop scent that will be hard to resist.
