When I Got in Her Car and Saw a Clothespin on the Air Vent, I Thought It Was Odd. Her Reason? GENIUS


You’ll all agree there’s hardly anything more off-putting than a smelly car. The thing is the confined space in your car gets easily compromised with bad odors whether it’s from your smelly sports equipment or beer bottles.

Now, the first thing most of us do is buy air fresheners, but as you all know, these are packed with chemicals that can do more harm than good.

But, if you read through this article, you’ll see that one simple trick can help you get rid of bad odors in your car.

When I Got in Her Car and Saw a Clothespin on the Air Vent, I Thought It Was Odd. Her Reason GENIUS

The key thing is a wooden clothespin. Simply put a few drops of your favorite essential oil on the clothespin, and the wood will easily absorb the nice smell of the oil. Next, put the clothespin into your car’s air vent, so as to get the smell spread into the whole vehicle.

If you want to be eco-friendly regarding your garbage and also prevent the bad smell that garbage bins give off, coat them with newspapers. This trick will double your benefits – you’ll recycle your old newspapers, and you’ll have a natural method of absorbing the bad garbage smell.

Vanilla is your best ally when it comes to fighting off-putting odors. Simply put two teaspoons of vanilla extract in the oven at 350 degrees for an hour and make the whole house smell great.

To deal with the garbage disposal in your kitchen, drop a few lemon slices down the disposal and grind them up.

Alternatively, freeze bits of lemon with vinegar in an ice cube tray then toss one of these down the drain. This will not only absorb the stink, but also produce a new, more agreeable smell.

Last, but not least, use coffee beans to do away with unwanted odors, including those in your closet or other rooms around the house.
