Casa Quickie: A Summer Air Freshener

With flowers in full bloom and windows wide open to let in the breeze, it's hard to imagine your home not smelling nice in the Summer. But, every room can get a little musty sometimes— or stale with the scent of last night's curry dinner. To curb the smell, slice up about six lemons and toss them in pot of water with a tablespoon or two of cloves. Then, just let them simmer for a few hours and your home will soon feel as refreshing as a nice, cold glass of lemonade.

You could get lemons from a farmer's market, they're usually cheaper,although they can be smaller. LOVE this idea!

I think I would only do this if I had a lemon tree in my garden, or if I had lemons in the house that are past their prime. Otherwise it seems a little wasteful. I did the same thing in the winter though, with orange peels, cinnamon and cloves.
