DIY Air Freshener

My kids tease me about my sense of smell. They say I am hypersensitive in this area. I will tell them to take out the trash because it reeks and they tell me they don't smell anything! Ditto for cleaning the bathroom, kitchen, rinsing out dishrags. As I type this I am stringing things together and getting the feeling they have a selective sense of smell to go with selective hearing. Teenagers! Have you ever had a phantom smell in your house? Come on, admit it, I won't tell. You know what I mean. It is when you can smell something is funky somewhere in the house, but you can't find it. That is when you need me for a friend. I can find it.
Time: 5 Minutes Difficulty: Easy

    I just posted this tutorial on my blog, but I punched holes in the lid. Love the cheesecloth idea instead!

    Well, I got a big bag of baking soda from Costco because it's so useful, and I have a giant lavender bush, and I have cheesecl0th - all I need is essential oil. I guess that's why they call it "essential".
