Air Freshener DIY - The Smell of Christmas

The smell of Christmas comes in many different varieties. To some, it could be warm apple cider with a splash of cinnamon. To others, a crisp burst of lemon balsam mixed with notes of eucalyptus. And still to others, nothing more unmistakably marks the season as the smell of a traditional evergreen.

No matter what your preference, the truth is that using a combination of scented plug-ins, well-placed candles, and a handful of oil reed diffusers can get a little pricey. To help keep your home smelling like Christmas while keeping the cost down, we’d like to share a few air freshener DIY recipes with you! In a crock-pot, simply combine the ingredients from the following DIY air freshener recipes, and set on low.

mold removal using cinnamon


Besides air fresheners, you can also use essential oils in your home for mold removal on non-porous surfaces. Cinnamon oil has been shown by the National Library of Medicine to be one of the strongest oils used for killing mold, as well as for suppressing bacterial growth for 60 days. For small mold contaminants on hard surfaces, you can dilute essential cinnamon oil with water and vinegar to clean. Try a half-gallon of water mixed with one-thirds of a cup of vinegar and 10-15 drops of cinnamon oil.


Of course, there are mold problems that can't be contained by at-home remedies. If you have any concerns, don't hesitate to call AdvantaClean to set up a consultation.
