Homemaking Tip—A Breath of Fresh Air


To make an inexpensive air freshener cut an orange in half, remove the pulp and fill the peel with salt. Fragrant, economical, simple, helps to tame house-i-tosis —it works for me.

this sounds cool. i've been simmering orange rinds with cloves in water on the stove, and it works great too.

I will try it. My kids would love to have an orange anyway right now. And my house has a SERIOUS house-i-tosis problem- at least it seems that way to my nose.

I've heard of grinding orange peels in the disposal but not this. Great tip!

I love to do that to clean my butcher block. When I'm done, I put it in my garbage disposal. Nothing smells as good as lemon!

I will try it. Oranges are on sale right now. I will eat them of course but I will save one as an airfreshner.
