Scraps to Fab-Homemade Air Freshener

Sometimes simple is best. Just a reminder to put those citrus scraps to good use as a natural air freshener. I have a small crock pot that's used for this purpose. I love the fresh smell of orange peel simmering away and you could always add some cloves and cinnamon, or a splash of vanilla.
A fresh sweet orange for breakfast today and I'll enjoy the fragrance tomorrow-Works for Me!

Have a happy day:@)

  4. I love this too, Lynn! And the orange smell is one of my favorites.
    Well, I did figure out my problem with Pinterest. I had accidently downloaded an extra toolbar and couldn't get rid of it. Finally did...long story and now I'm back and running. But I don't like the new Pinterest. I don't think it's user friendly enough and I don't like the format either. I like the larger snaps but that's about all. It just doesn't make much sense now!
    Be a sweetie,

  7. My friend Elsi use to have a pot of orange peels and herbs that she keep on her wood stove. It always smelled so good in her house.

  8. Nothing smells better. I usually do this during the holidays and the rest of the time use citrus peels to freshen my garbage disposal. I may have to think of this as an "all year" thing!

  9. Love this idea, Lynn... never thought of it before! Sometimes I do the peels in the disposal, but it's not quite the same:)

  17. I do this often, too. I save any peelings from fruits in a plastic ziplock...then, when I get a few, I add them to a small pan of water and simmer on the stove top. I need to get a tiny little slow cooker for this. I also run a few peeling thru my garbage disposal to freshen it.
    hugs...
