DIY Kitchen Air Freshener

This DIY Air Freshener Gets Rid of Bad Smells in the Kitchen

Sometimes the smell wafting from your kitchen isn't as delicious as it should be. Whether it's a cooking disaster or the scent of leftover baked fish, refresh your kitchen with this eco-friendly spray that also puts the ends of herbs and cooking bits to good use. The scent will refresh your kitchen and leave it smelling just like a cozy home.

What You'll Need:

  • Vodka
  • Vinegar
  • Vanilla
  • Lemon or orange peels
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Rosemary sprigs (optional)
  • Spray bottle

Directions:

  1. Mix together equal parts vinegar, vodka, and water in a spray bottle. Both the vinegar and vodka neutralize smells without leaving any lingering scent.
  2. Now add 1 teaspoon vanilla and a few lengths of lemon or orange peel (or both!). Tuck in a few fresh rosemary sprigs, or even mint or oregano, for an extra boost of scent.

  1. Screw on the top of the spray bottle, give the mixture a little shake, and spray when needed.
