DIY Natural Air Freshener (because bad smells are awkward)
Imagine you’re standing outside next to a dryer vent. You hover for a moment. The scent of fresh, crisp, laundry tickles your nose. I love that smell…I also love the smell of lavender fields, evergreen forests, and line-dried bedding.
But I have a sports-obsessed kid running around–that’s a lot of stink to hide. Have you ever smelled a hockey bag? (Gag!) I thought people exaggerated when they claimed boys were so smelly.
On top of stinky boys, I have a stinky dog, and now I’m using medical marijuana. Every time I open my door, I wonder if my guest can smell my medicine.
“Hi welcome to the neighborhood. I’m so glad little Johnny could come over for a play-date. Come on in. Please ignore the fact that my house smells like marijuana?”
It’s a lot to explain. Sometimes I wonder if I should expound on out my medical history to show I’m abiding by the law. Then again as much as I share my story, I do think people are entitled to medical privacy.
“Errr? Pot? What?? No, that’s just my pet skunk you smell.”
So what’s a woman to do? I used to love Febreze; I used it daily. Then I began to suspect that the Febreze was aggravating my asthma. When I read this article, I was certain of it. Febreze is laden with nasty ingredients.
So Febreeze is out, but I can’t just ignore the odors. Fortunately, there’s a much healthier, natural alternative.
