Poor air circulation in tight storage spaces often leaves linens, towels, clothing, and other items smelling less than fresh. Luckily, sprucing up the smell requires nothing more than two items most of us already have around the house. Simply spray your favorite scent (or any appealing smell) onto a few cotton balls, let them dry a little, and then put them in the corners on a shelf or in the back of drawers, and voila! Store-bought deodorizers can be a little overpowering for my taste, which is the main reason I love this trick, but also because you can use a scent of your own choosing. Another added bonus? It costs next to nothing.
