Make Long Lasting Air Fresheners

When you walk into someone's home, the first thing you usually notice is the smell. With pets and children, sometimes it can be difficult to keep a home smelling fresh. Fortunately, long-lasting air fresheners can be made with materials you might already have around your home. Creating a long-lasting air freshener can be done in minutes and will have your home smelling fresh in no time.


1. Place 3 cups of water in a pot. Place the pot on the stove and heat to boiling. Reduce the heat to medium.

2. Add about 1/4 cup of vodka to the water. If you do not smell vodka from the pot, continue adding 1/3 cup of vodka until the vapors smell of vodka.

3. Add 5 to 10 drops of cinnamon extract, 5 drops of ginger extract, and a few drops of lavender oil. Smell the mixture to make sure it is what you expected. If not, continue adding different ingredients until you get the desired scent.

4. Add 1/4 cup of liquid fabric softener. Stir the entire mixture and pour into a glass bottle or jar. Poke holes in the lid and place the jar in a high-traffic area. If you'd rather use the long-lasting air freshener only occasionally, don't punch holes in the lid. Instead, leave the lid on and remove it when you need a burst of fragrance.
