DIY An Air Freshener Using Coffee Grounds

2 Minutes

You and I both know that the bathroom can be a source of, ahem, unpleasant smells. Today, I've got two versions of a super simple DIY air freshener to share with you.
You'll need spice jars for both air fresheners. (I used old ones from Target's Archer Farms brand, but you can buy ones as well).
If you want to decorate the jar, you'll need crafty supplies as well. I just used washi tape. Start by decorating your jar however you wish... or leave it be.
Option number one is to use baking soda and essential oil. Another option is to use fresh coffee grounds. Want more ways to freshen your home?

    Perhaps a flavored coffee would impart a fragrance, though more subtle than adding essential oil. You have a great idea here & I definitely want to make these room freshners! Thank you! :)
