Let's talk today about freshening our homes.
One very easy tip I love is simple and free. But you do have to be patient. What is this simple, free tip? Open your windows! If the weather is nice - oh, about 70 degrees and sunny will do -- open those windows. Let the fresh air in and the stale winter air out!
How about a little lavender scented spray for your pillows, upholstery and carpets? You can purchase essential oils at most health food stores. Just a couple of drops in a 16 oz spray bottle of water is all it takes to really freshen a room.
We all know the old lemon in the garbage disposal trick... but try simmering a sliced lemon in a small pot of water, or miniature crock pot. The fresh lemon scent will immediately freshen the air inside your home.
Both of these little tips will leave your home smelling fresh and clean... If you're expecting company - throw open those windows...let the outside in... enjoy the fresh air!
