Natural air fresheners

Natural Air Fresheners

Natural air fresheners:-

 

Set out a dish of cut lemons or baking soda to absorb odours.Simmer (on the stovetop or in a slow cooker) water, slices of ginger, and spices such as cinnamon, cloves, allspice, vanilla, and almond extracts. This also increases humidity in dry heated homes during winter. Never use Teflon or other non-stick cookware or kettles for simmering.Stick whole cloves into an orange, grapefruit or lemon and place near heater or cold air return vent.Decorative containers of cloves and cinnamon sticks can be set in areas where fragrance will be appreciated.Fill a saucer with vanilla extract and place near the air intake register of heating system.Fill a spray bottle with a pint of water and a tablespoon of vanilla extract. Use as a room freshener spray to eliminate cooking and pet odours.To keep pet areas fragrant, keep an open box of baking soda, a bowl of charcoal, or cotton balls dipped in vanilla extract nearby and out of the reach of children and pets.Many plants are said to be indoor air fresheners, but you have to check to see if the plants you have in your house are toxic or not.
