Living in a small, open floor plan means that household odors travel.
Today, I have a safe, inexpensive and natural deodorizer that will help you get rid of those common household odors for good.
The worst offender in my home is the kitchen. Between the trash can and garbage disposal, something always needs freshening.
1. Garbage Disposal
To deodorize your garbage disposal, simply freeze vinegar and small pieces of lemon together in an ice tray.
Pop an ice-cube in your disposal whenever you need it.
I have noticed on occasion that our laundry, especially the towels, smell a little, well, stinky.
To solve that dilemma, just add vinegar to your wash cycle. Your laundry will smell so fresh!
3. Pet accidents
As much as we love our cat, he sometimes misses the litter box.
After wiping up the urine, spray the floor with a mixture of vinegar and water. I let it sit for a while before mopping.
I have a ceramic tile floor, and have never had an issue using vinegar on it.
4. Odors in the Air
If you’ve ever cooked fish, you know that the seafood smell can linger in the air for days.
But not if you try this tip! Just set out a bowl of vinegar overnight and it will absorb the smell.
This tip is good for removing cigarette smoke or paint fumes, too.
Do you know of any other ways that vinegar deodorizes? I’d love to hear your tips.
See you in class,
