Home: Natural Air Fresheners

Most trash cabinets, ours included, can get a bit smelly.  Commercial air fresheners mask the odor, but I wanted to remove the smell using natural ingredients.  After doing some research, I found this solution: A combination of baking soda and essential oil will remove the odors and provide a nice light scent.

Just to be fancy, I placed the combination in jam jars with cheesecloth used in place of the top lid.  If you don't have the time or inclination to use a jam jar, placing the baking soda/essential oil combination in a bowl will work as well.  Replace the baking soda/oil combination monthly.

The things you'll need: baking soda, essential oil, jam jars and cheesecloth

Combine 1/2 cup baking soda and 4-5 drops of your favorite essential
oil (I used orange essential oil)

After mixing together the baking soda and oil, place in the jam jar and cover
with cheesecloth

Screw the lid on the jam jar and trim the cheesecloth around the lid
