Do you get wafts of not-so-pleasant smell around your trash or diaper pail, too? Please say I’m not the only one. Do you also like to do super simple DIY crafts? Well you’re in luck! Here is a quick and versatile Air Freshener DIY that can work for everywhere: bathrooms, living spaces, animal areas, nurseries- I just happen to keep them next to our Ubbi Steel Diaper Pail, Gray
The ingredients are all natural and safe, but they should still be kept out of reach from small children. Still, it’s nice knowing that there aren’t artificial fumes masking odors, since the Baking Soda eliminates the odor while the essential oil emits a subtle, nice smell! (Plus they’re cheaper and longer-lasting than the store bought ones!)
What You’ll Need:
- Baking Soda
- Small Mason Jar
- Scrapbooking Paper
- Essential Oil (of your choice, I use Lemon or Lavender)
Start by tracing the inner lid of the mason jar onto your paper and cutting it out. Then, you’ll add a half-cup or so of Baking Soda into the jar and add a few drops of your essential oil. Assemble the mason jar with the paper lid in place of the metal lid, and poke a few small holes in the paper (I used a safety pin, but a knife, pen, sewing needle, etc would work). Give the jar a little shake to stir up the oil and baking soda and wah-lah, natural diaper pail deodorizer!
Feel free to embellish further, I added a bit of gold and white twine. Plus, not only is this a quick and cute project for around your own home- it’s also a great housewarming gift, baby gift, or craft to do with older kiddos!
