DIY AIR FRESHENER

This post was not inspired by the haze, it was inspired by a smelly toilet and very expensive air fresheners. Refusing to pay for them anymore, I made my own Air Freshener using essential oils.

First, I needed to buy a bottle with a small opening at the neck - which is so difficult to find! I tried to cheat by using any bottle I could find - it so didn't work because the oils will just evaporate fast! So I bought an air freshener that comes with a bottle like that from DAISO and then when it was used up, I could reuse it again.

Next, I bought thin bamboo skewers.

Then I made the solution with this recipe: Add 12-15 drops of pure essential oil to 1/2 cup of white vinegar and 1 1/2 cups of water. Some people add a splash of vodka which helps the oil travel up the reeds better. I tripled the batch and kept the excess in a sealed glass jar until needed so that I can top up easily as and when.

Nothing fancy, no snazzy names but it works. If you don't like any kind of smells, nice ones or not nice ones, in your toilet, you can also just put a bag of charcoal around. That works great too :)
