Fresh HomeMade Air Freshener

When I moved 2 years ago, the realtor told us to make sure we freshened our house with the scent of lemon.  It was the one scent that when people walk through a house will make them think “new” “clean” “fresh”.  They claim it makes a big difference in selling a house.  Who knew lemons had such power.

In order to do that, we had a dicken’s of a time trying to find anything lemon period.

I just stumbled across this cool way to make your own homemade air freshener.  It can be any scent you like, but I’m going lemon when I sell my next house.

Get a spray bottle that will hold two cups.  It’s best if you have the sprayer adjustable for fine misting.

Go to your favorite place to purchase essential oils, or health food store to get natural lemon oil.

Fill the spray bottle with two cups of distilled water.  (Cuts back on clogging up the nozzle.)

Frugal Laundry Soap That Works

Just run out of laundry soap and don’t want to run to the store to finish the last loads of the day???  Just add 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap per load of laundry.  It is cheaper, will clean clothes just as well, and you just might find you like it better.  My personal preference is Dawn, but any should work.

Baking Soda and Dirty Dishes

How many times do you have baked and caked on food in your dishes and you know your dishwasher will not clean them, not matter how good the dishwasher or soap? Well, try this trick. Sprinkle baking soda on the dirty dishes. Cover the soda with water and let sit overnight. When you wash your dishes the next morning, that baked and caked on food will come right off.
