Homemade Air Freshener 2 cups hot water 1/8 cup baking soda (as we've mentioned before, baking soda is great for removing odors) 1/2 cup lemon juice (bottled - even expired! - works fine too) Dissolve your baking soda completely in the hot water. Then add your lemon juice. Be careful with this step, as adding the lemon juice can make it erupt like a grade school science project
Mason jar air freshener - fill a small mason jar about 1/4 full with baking soda, and add 6-8 drops of your favorite essential oil. Punch holes in the lid, and place in any spot that could use some freshening. Every once in a while, give the jar a gentle shake to boost it's air freshening power.
