Commercial air fresheners use potent chemicals to mask the odors in your home or coat your nasal passage to weaken your ability to smell. Instead of masking, there are many natural, non-toxic ways you can absorb the odors in your home to actually make it fresher. Here are some ideas to keep your home smelling nice while also keeping it clean.

Houseplants

Keeping plants in the home will help reduce odors. Palm trees, in particular, remove formaldehyde from the air, and they are easy to care for. Herbs and flowers also absorb odors while providing a lovely scent to the room.

Lemons

Mix baking soda or vinegar with lemon juice in small dishes around the home to absorb odors. Sliced lemons also do wonders when ground up in your garbage disposal.

Coffee Grounds

Don't just throw away your coffee grounds. Dry them out and you can use them to cut winter muskiness. Place them in an old sock and hang it from a shelf or inside your closets.

Vinegar

While cooking, simmer one tablespoon of vinegar and a cup of water. Or you can use cinnamon and water. These methods will keep the smells of cooking from lingering. Also use vinegar on your utensils before washing them with water to remove fish and onion odors.

Vodka

Ethyl alcohol is common in commercial air fresheners, and is also found in vodka. The difference is that the vodka does not come with petroleum propellants and synthetic fragrances. It dissolves cleanly without odor, so you can spray it into the air or you can add essential oils for additional aroma. To get those odors out of your carpet and upholstery, contact the eco-friendly cleaners at Fairbanks CleanPro in Fairbanks, AK. Give us a call at (907) 388-7768 or visit our website.
