Have you ever returned home from a quick trip to the store, only to find that there was some kind of strange, funky smell? Gross. How come you never noticed it before? Perhaps something just started rotting or perhaps that smell was always there to begin with. Sensory adaptation means that we “get used to” constant odors so we eventually don’t even realize that our home reeks of something nasty. It’s a nice natural defense mechanism but that also means that we could potentially be oblivious to offensive odors when we have guests over! So what to do?
Obviously, we should try to keep our homes clean but that’s not always enough. Accordingly, many people buy air fresheners but that can get expensive in a hurry.
Fortunately, Amy from Aim To Create has a couple great DIY solutions to keeping your home smelling fantastic! And the best part is that they’re both super simple, very inexpensive, and very good stylish!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Used candle jar
- Mason jar with tin lid
- Baking soda
- Essential oil
- Tea light (optional)
