The Best Way to “Freshen Up” Your Home for Fall

This will be a quick little tip. I have 2 sons and a daughter. To say that the air quality has its ebbs and flows would be an understatement. So, when they come home smelling like the hundreds of school kids & staff they’ve encountered, I keep the “phew” at bay by using these little beauties:

YES!!!!! These are an awesome $3 steal!! Yes, Purex Crystals are intended for laundry use (they’re mind blowing for that too, by the way) but don’t let the good smells stop there!  I go around the house and find fun little places to put them to keep the house smelling its best. Some places are:

*In socks-(I call them sock bombs). They’re thrown in my oldest’s room like grenades to combat the puberty age, PE funk that can rear its stinky head.

*Behind curtains-out of sight, but full of fresh fragrance!
*In vases with flowers-hide your beautiful smelling little secret.

See how I hid them under the flowers?  It also keeps the little fingers from touching it.

*In candle holders-the candle is optional.  You may be able to find scents whose colors coordinate with your decor!

Bonus tip: Just cook something like cabbage or broccoli & the doorbell rings?(Insert look of horror here)  Well, pop the cap off and hold it under your ceiling fan for about 30-45 seconds. It’ll make a WORLD or difference!
