A Fabulous Junque Tip: Making Your Own Air Freshener

Here's a quickie tip on making an air freshener for your home. I have to give DaHubster credit for coming up with this one. He mentioned that when we grate our Fels Naptha bars of soap (for making laundry detergent), there's always little chunks left over that we don't grate for fear of grating our fingers, too.  So I've been cutting them up with a knife. He said, "Why don't we put them in a jar as an air freshener?"  if you've ever grated soap before, you know that the "clean" smell of it gets in your nostrils and doesn't leave for quite a while. So, I grabbed a small jelly jar, a lid, and some screening and Viola!

this particular one sits on my kitchen window sill, and I gotta admit, it does a pretty darn good job of smelling good. I can smell it every time I'm at the kitchen sink.And it looks pretty too. Homey.

This will probably work on any bar soap that you like the scent of, and a great way to use up the last bits of the bars of soap in your shower. Just rinse off the soap scum, chunk it up, and put it in a small jar with some sort of an open lid.

Good idea, Honey!
