Cheap Homemade Air Freshener Recipe - Just Lemon Juice, Baking Soda and water

Freshen up your bathroom (or other smelly areas in your home, like where the kitty litter box is) with a simple recipe that adds a fresh lemony scent AND naturally neutralizes odor, instead of masking it.

2 tablespoons baking soda
2 teaspoons lemon juice
About 1 cup of water

Mix together in a clean spray bottle with a fine mist setting. Shake very gently, and spray away nasty scent and odor!

(PS. Got the inspiration for this simple recipe from the show: "How Clean is your House?" I love those two ladies!)

For us frugalites, the best news of all is this - this homemade air freshening formula is literally only about 10 cents or so per bottle! If you have access to a lemon tree, it'll be even less! And you can get a fabulous little spray bottle for this to keep in the bathroom for a buck at a dollar store.
