Make your own air freshener

Yes! Why waste money on commercial products when you can make your own air deodorizer. Use a regular pump spray mister with 4 cups of water in it, add 4 teaspoons of baking soda and spray the odours away. This will not mask an odor it will remove an odour. Which is what is needed.

Another probably stronger air freshener is as follows; use 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 tablespoon vinegar and 2 cups of water. After it stops foaming, mix well, pour into a spray bottle and spray into the air.

Baking soda is very good at removing odours around the home. See the links below to check out all the other neat stuff that baking soda will do.

it works! Comments By: janis on 2005-04-08
If you add a little lemon juice to the baking soda/water mixture it leaves a nice smell...works great for people who can't handle the strong floral scents of other doedorizing products on the market

I knew that baking soda and vinegar both help with odors, but this is a great idea! And it really worked! It even helped get rid of the paint smell in my bathroom!
