I am working to get our home back in shape after so many of us were sick. Today is a gorgeous sunny day so I have lots of windows open to air out the house.
However, I decided that we needed a little more help than that with the smells. Being frugal and having a desire to live naturally I whipped up what I am calling “Fauxbreeze”.
- Empty Spray Bottle
- White Vinegar
- Essential Oils (not fragrance oil) Ex. Lemon, Tea Tree, Lavender, Orange, etc.
Fill the spray bottle almost to the top with white vinegar. Then add about 10 drops of lemon essential oil and a few drops of lavender (or whatever combination of oils you choose). Shake up the bottle (after attaching the sprayer 🙂 ) and you are ready to go.
Once I had the spray mixed up, I went to work spraying the couch, loveseat and chair, and it is really working.
Vinegar is naturally a disinfectant and odor destroyer, and the essential oils give it a nice fresh scent. You can play around with the scents you add to the vinegar to get a combination you like. This will also work with just plain vinegar.
Have fun making your house smell better using this frugal and natural spray!
