This Homemade Kitchen Spice Air Freshener is natural air freshener can be made in minutes and have your house smelling amazing in no time.
It seems like there is never enough time in the day to get things done. To help keep my sanity, I’m always on the lookout for time-saving tips that I can incorporate into my everyday life.
As you know, I’m a sucker for a good recipe. So, I thought I would come up with a recipe for natural air freshener that will have your kitchen smelling amazing in no time.
There is nothing like the warm, cinnamon-y aroma of something baking. It triggers those cozy feelings that come from fresh-baked goodness. That scent was what I was going for with this recipe.
With just a few simple ingredients (most of which you probably already have on hand), you pull together this air freshener in a matter of minutes.
You simply put all of the ingredients into some water and simmer. The heat will release all of the natural aromas – filling your kitchen with the scent of fresh-baked deliciousness.
If I know I’m going to be in the kitchen all day, I will put a small pan of this air freshener on and let it simmer away. It makes me feel all warm and cozy.
Another way to keep your kitchen smelling great is to use Hefty Ultra Strong garbage bags. They have Arm & Hammer odor neutralizers and new, invigorating scents to help keep odors at bay. Or, if you prefer, they also offer a scent-free option.
Hefty Strong Ultra garbage bags have active tear resistant technology for better puncture resistance. This means that they won’t tear or rip as you’re taking out the trash. There is nothing worse than having stinky, smelly garbage spilled all over your floors — there is nothing time saving about that!
I love the citrus scented ones. We eat a lot of eggs and in the hot, summer months egg shells in the garbage can leave a nasty odor. But these garbage bags neutralize the funk.
You can find Hefty Strong Ultra garbage bags with a new, lower price at Walmart and Target. You should definitely give them a try. Click here to get $1.00 cash back via Ibotta after purchasing one box of Hefty trash bags.
