Green Remedies for Stubborn Odors

Just kidding - thankfully we're not talking about that kind of odor. We found tips for three simple ways to combat tough household smells and freshen the air at home...

Musty Suitcase: Fill it with recycled crumpled newspaper let it sit for a week. The paper will help absorb the smell. Then, fill a mister bottle with water, add a few drops of tea tree oil, lightly spray the case and leave it open to dry.

Burnt Food: Set aside a thrift store pie plate for times like these. Sprinkle the pan with cinnamon, nutmeg, and a dash of orange essential oil - place in the warm oven, and let it sit as the oven cools.

Stinky Carpet: Sprinkle baking soda around the rug. Add some dried crushed lavender or basil. Wait about 1/2 hour. Vacuum.
