Air Freshener Spray
Air Freshener Spray Home Hack from H&P Artistry
Today’s home hack is an Air Freshener Spray. You guys liked the room deodorizer and freshener so much that I decided to share this one as well. This is a super easy way to freshen your home that you can make your self. Again this is one of those moments where you need to understand that this is not a super long-lasting fragrance like store-bought air fresheners. The fragrance staying power depends on the fragrance oil or essential oil you use and where you use it. If sprayed on fabric the fragrance will last a bit longer than if sprayed into the air. You might be tempted to use a lot of fragrance oil. Don’t! Some oils can stain and you do not want to accidentally damage household items 10 to 30 drops is enough. Check the oil manufactures instruction and they should have a guide on the percentage tobe used in room spray.
My favorite two uses are lightly spraying sheets and bedding to freshen up a bedroom or spraying the couch to freshen up the living room. Remember the items sprayed will be damp at first.
3/4 cup of water
2 tbsp to 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol or vodka
10 – 30 drops of fragrance or essential oil depending on manufactures usage instructions.
1 spray bottle
Pour the 3/4 cup of water into the bottle. Make sure the bottle is clean and sanitized. A good way to do this is by cleaning with a bleach water solution and then rinsing. Spray the inside and outside of the bottle with alcohol. Let the alcohol dry naturally and touch the bottle as little as possible to decrease contamination.
Add the Alcohol to the mix. from 2 tbsp to 1/4 of a cup.
Add your oil or oils. You can mix oils to get the desired effect or buy premixed fragrance oils it is all up to you. Remember to not use too much oil.
Put the cap back on tightly.
Shake the bottle to mix the ingredients well.
Print out the labels and write the name of the air freshener on the label. There are a few designs to choose from to fit any season or fragrance.
Tape or stick the label on to the bottle and you are ready to use your new homemade air freshener.
I’m contemplating doing either a wax melt tutorial or a scented wooden block tutorial next month. Which would you rather see on the blog?
