“Do you smell it? That smell. A kind of smelly smell. The smelly smell that smells . . . smelly.” --Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob SquarePants
Homemade air freshener is probably one of the easiest and cheapest things you can make. But beyond those reasons, ditching the toxic stuff is important.
We all have to go, and sometimes we have to go right away, no matter where we are. But, we don’t want to share the smell !
The trick is to spray this stuff into your toilet bowl, directly into the water BEFORE you go. Spray it 5 times, right into the water. The oil and alcohol create an oil barrier on top of the water to trap any “poo” under it! This traps the odors underneath the oil barrier so they don’t come out of the toilet and into the air.
Combine 1/2 cup water with 1/2 cup alcohol or vodka , and add 15-25 drops of essential oil of your choice (depending on how strong you want the scent). Shake the mixture before spraying.
Listed below are some suggestions for essential oil combinations.
15 drops Wild orange essential oil
10 drops peppermint oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
8 drops geranium essential oil
6 drops grapefruit essential oil
