Yep I’m that girl in school that when she gets excited about a project goes all out, even to the point of being a little show off or brown nose. But all the better for you though, right?
Let’s face it, summer stinks! Not in the bummer/ lame sort of way, but in the hot, sticky, my husband’s workout socks sort of way. And let me tell you in 550 sq feet you notice these things! A couple weeks ago on Pinterest I found a darling natural air freshener that would tend to mother nature’s offensive smells.
Lucky for me the Pinterest had tracked my pin to the original source, The Imperfect Homemaking that had a complete recipe for this simple, eco-friendly deodorizer: 1/4 cup baking soda and 6-8 drops of essential oil. Yep, that’s it!
Now of making my own version of this wonderfully simple freshener. On our Saginaw Thrift Store Romp I managed to pick up a couple canning jars for just a few cents. However, the small decorative jelly jars were all missing their top lid, easy enough, I can work with that.
I followed the directions 1/4 cup baking soda and several shakes of essential oils. I opted for an essential oil blend of peppermint and rosemary designed to energize. After all a little extra pep around the house never hurt.
I covered the top with scrap of fabric and screwed the top ring back in place.
I made one for Cody’s Garage, well closet we affectionately call our garage. Truth be told, that is the place that needs the most freshening!
After putting my glass jar air freshener among the cleats, bike helmet, and various power tools, it occurred to me that this is not a very glass-safe environment. So I slid it into a roll of duct tape, instantly more manly.
