One Ingredient Odor Absorbers : Simple Solutions for Life’s Stinky Problems

One Ingredient Odor Absorbers - Clean Mama

Have you ever had an odor that lingered, kept coming back, or just wouldn’t go away? Today I’m sharing 3 simple odor absorbers that only require ONE ingredient. Chances are you have these ingredients on hand – file the idea away and next time you have a lingering odor, open your pantry and eliminate that odor. Better yet, you’ll be getting rid of the odor naturally, without artificial fragrances.

Baking Soda

Carpet Freshener - Clean Mama

  • sprinkle in smelly garbage cans
  • sprinkle on stinky carpet, let sit, vacuum up
  • keep a box in your refrigerator or freezer to absorb odors

White Vinegar

Vinegar in a Bowl - Clean Mama

  • smelly kitchen odors (like a dinner smell that won’t go away). Pour 1/4 – 1/2 cup in a small bowl and let it sit uncovered on a counter for 24 hours.

Essential Oil

Essential Oil in a Cotton Ball - Clean Mama

  • put a drop or two of your favorite essential oils (lemon, lavender, and cedar are great for freshening a drawer) on a cotton ball or cotton pad and tuck in a musty dresser drawer, a stuffy closet, stinky shoes, gym bag, vacuum cleaner bag or canister, etc. Find essential oils in my shop here.
