Get Rid of Household Odors with Vanilla Extract

House smelling weird? Put two caps full of vanilla extract in a coffee cup, then place it in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour. Within twenty minutes the whole house smells like Heaven. It's actually a common realtor trick.

Does your house smell good? If the answer isn’t an immediate “YES”, try this: 1 apple {on the brink of death is fine} 2-3 C water 6-8 cinnamon sticks {you can get these at what I call “the DG” for $1} 1 handful of cloves 1 dash of nutmeg the juice of an orange {or OJ from the fridge is fine too} a splash of vanilla SIMMER and SMELL!

Homemade Fabric Softener! What You’ll Need: 6 cups HOT water 3 cups white vinegar 2 cups Suave Refreshing Waterfall Conditioner {or other favorite scent} What You’ll Do: Mix conditioner & hot water well, until conditioner is dissolved completely. Add the vinegar, and mix well. Store in a large container {empty fabric softener container, empty large vinegar bottle, etc} Pour into a downy ball… or use approx. 2 tbsp. in the fabric softener spot in your laundry machine… then wash!

Clean the microwave and freshen the home. 2 cups water w/ 1tsp Vanilla in a microwavable safe bowl, zap on high for 5 mins. When done remove & wipe down.
