If you have a musty smelling closet, stinky bathroom or pets, then this tip is for you! In some spaces in our home, it seems like no matter how often I clean, there is still a musty odor or smell. We have animals, so this is pretty normal, but I still don't like it. So, I decided to make a few odor absorbers to stick around the house in the areas where smells tend to linger...my son's bathroom, the room where the cat litter box is, and my closet...just to keep them smelling fresh! These little things work wonders, and are cute too!

You will need some small jars with lids, baking soda and essential oils of your choice. I chose lavender and lemon oils.

Place the paper circle you cut out in the lid ring instead of using the metal lid, then twist it on. Shake your mixture really well...
