Air Freshener Spray DIY

5 Materials

Today’s home hack is an Air Freshener Spray.
You guys liked the room deodorizer and freshener so much that I decided to share this one as well.
This is a super easy way to freshen your home that you can make your self. Again this is one of those moments where you need to understand that this is not a super long-lasting fragrance like store-bought air fresheners. The fragrance staying power depends on the fragrance oil or essential oil you use and where you use it.
If sprayed on fabric the fragrance will last a bit longer than if sprayed into the air.
My favorite uses are lightly spraying sheets and bedding or to mist the couch for a longer lasting fragrance.

Tips and info
You might be tempted to use a lot of fragrance oil. Don’t! Some oils can stain and you do not want to accidentally damage household items 10 to 30 drops is enough. Check the oil manufactures instruction and they should have a guide on the percentage to be used in room spray.
