You’ll never buy a commercial air freshener again after you’ve made your own! Many people swear by homemade fresheners made with baking soda or vinegar, which act as deodorizers as well as adding a gentle scent.

Both lemon and baking soda are traditional odor eaters and this recipe couldn’t be simpler.


1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 cups (500ml) water


1. Combine the ingredients in a bowl and allow the mixture to fizz. When fizzing subsides, stir well.

2. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle that produces a fine mist. Spray rooms that need freshening two or three times a day.
