From cookies that baked a little too long in the oven to a pup that played outside after a recent rain, scents that are less-than-pleasant can quickly overtake your home. There’s an arsenal of aerosol sprays that offer instant odor relief. But why clutter the air with chemicals when a safe solution is just a spritz away? Simply combine clean-smelling citrus and germ-fighting tea tree essential oils with water for a natural freshener that will turn “ewww” into “ahhh” without hurting the environment—or your health!
