1. Simmer Up the Spices!
When kitchen air gets stale, liven it up by simmering a handful of whole cloves, 3-4 whole nutmegs, 4-5 cinnamon sticks, and perhaps a few orange or lemon peels in a large pot of water for an hour. But don't just pour this bubbling deodorizer down the drain! Instead, strain the cooled liquid into spray bottles and use it in the kitchen and elsewhere whenever the air could use a little freshening.
