People can remember smelly places with 65% accuracy after a year.
Baking Soda - more than a baking ingredient!
Baking soda is an inexpensive, fragrance free, all natural ingredient that can be used for all kinds of cleaning and deodorizing. It is non- toxic and versatile so nobody will be exposed to harmful chemicals. Perfect to use in areas frequented by kids and pets, and its also safe to use where food is prepared.
Not only is it great for your fridge and freezer, if you have a closet or room that has trapped odors, you can place a box in there also. And when you're done with the box you can dump 1/2 cup down your drain and rinse it down with warm water to keep your drains smelling fresh.
Sprinkle it on:
Carpets and upholstery - sprinkle and let sit for few minutes than vacuum. This will work in your car also!
Trash cans - sprinkle a little in the bottom before replacing trash bag.
Gym bags and sneakers - If these are really bad, you can fill a thin pair of socks with baking soda, tie off the top part and put it in the shoes when they are not being worn. You could also use this to store fabric items such as clothes or stuffed animals to keep them fresher smelling.
Baking soda doesn't mask odors - it neutralizes them. I even found a "recipe" for Baking Soda spray.
28 to 32 ounce squirt bottle
1/4 Cup baking soda
Fill up with water and shake until mixed.
I have not tried this yet. It sounds useful to use in all kinds of areas at work and at home.
Have a fantastic weekend.
