3 easy natural hand made air fresheners

Hello, hello!

Today we are going to do 3 different natural air fresheners! I can swear to you that if you use any of these options, your house or room will smell exceptionally well. We are going to use some citrus, fruit peels, and species that are going to create this forest and cozy smell at your place. Actually, it’s very easy to do them as long as you use the whole piece of the fruit, so you don’t waste food.

Let 's start!

1. Lemon and lime ice cubes for the sink

We don’t know how, but sometimes all of our friends or family end up at our house magically. We all eat, gather, and have a nice time! But at the end of the day, the sink is full of dirty dishes, and once they are clean, the same sink can still smell a little bit bad. But, what can we do?

A perfect solution for the smell of the sink is to make lemon and lime ice cubes for the sink! An air freshener that will give our kitchen a clean and comfortable smell.

To do it, we just have to follow the next steps:

  1. With a crusher, chop 1 lemon and 1 lime (Don’t worry if you don’t have a crusher, you can just cut it into very, very small pieces)

  2. Mix the crushed fruit with 500 ml of water.

  3. Once the water and the citrus are together, pour the mix evenly into an ice cube mold.

  4. Leave it in the freezer for 2 hours.

Now that your ice cubes are done, you can leave them in the sink hole and they will meld slowly and contribute to a wonderful smell in your kitchen.

You can put it in any sink and also inside the bathroom toilet 🙂

2. Autumn air freshener

This air freshener is composed of mandarin orange, cinnamon, and water. It’s also very easy to do and will give your house an autumnal and cozy smell. It will smell so good that you will be willing to stay at home with a blanket and a film.

  1. Peel 3 mandarins and put them in a pot of water with 500 ml of water

  2. Add 1 spoon of cinnamon (you can use dried cinnamon too)

  3. Let it boil for 5 min

Once it's cooled down, you can put it in a jar without the lid to spread the smell all over the house!

3. Dried fruit

This is a perfect solid air freshener to put inside little bags and then put in any part of the house, from the door handle to the inside of the wardrobe, to guarantee a great smell for our clothes.

  1. Slice the orange with the peel. Try to make the slices about 3–4 mm thick (you can use orange, apple, or lemon).

  2. Put them inside the preheated oven for 15 minutes at 150 degrees, then turn them around and repeat the process.

  3. Finally, reduce the oven temperature to 70 degrees and leave the sliced fruit in there for 1 hour.
