Round-up: Natural Air Fresheners For Your Home

Got a stinky smell in your home? You might want to pause before turning to that can of synthetic air freshener.

Did you know that most synthetic air fresheners — such as Lysol — do little to nothing to freshen the air? Instead, these chemical-laden products simply add more pollutants to your home when you spray them around your living room or bathroom. So, instead of making a bad situation worse, combat unpleasant smells with something that is derived from natural ingredients and won't detract from your home's indoor air quality. Take a look at the widget below for some of my favorite natural air fresheners.

Method is great for a quick fix. Otherwise fresh air and a bouquet of flowers is my fav.

Often times I just mix a small box of baking soda (pet safe) and a few drops of tea tree oil, stir and leave over-night to ensure the oil is absorbed. Sprinkle the mix over carpet and i recently put it on my couch as well. I leave it on over-night, but 30 minutes is sufficient and then vacuum up. It will absorb the smells in the carpet and leave the room smelling fresh with out any harsh chemicals. Plus, it is so cheap!

Very useful! I hate the "chemical fragrance" that air freshener sprays usually leave. I try to just place baking soda all over the place to eat bad odors (well, mainly in the kitchen).
