Recent posts on Frugal for Life and Lifehacker reminded us of some easy, eco-friendly ways to remove odors from -- or, as Lifehacker says, "de-stinkify" -- our homes (without resorting to non-green air fresheners). Following are some of the ideas: • Try to determine what the odor is from -- throw out old food, take out the garbage, run the garbage disposal, clean smelly shoes and dog beds, change the cat box • Open all the windows • Soak a cotton ball in clove oil, lemon extract, peppermint or vanilla extract; place it in a plastic bag or container with holes, and place in the smelly room • Boil lemon or orange peels in water, and let stand • Leave a bowl of white vinegar in the room • Run orange or lemon peels through the garbage disposal • Boil cinnamon sticks • Put drops of vanilla or essential oil on light bulbs Anyone have any tips to add?
