I thought I'd join in on the "Works for Me Wednesday" where fellow bloggers share their tips. I love this Wednesday tradition and have picked up a ton of great ideas! So enough lurking, it was time for me to jump in! (-;
I babysit so my house is usually abound with "kid" smells...you know the ones, particularly dirty diapers. For the past seven years, I have pretty much babysat infants on a continuous loop. So here is a trick I use particularly when I know company is coming and I want to "freshen" up the air.
I take a coffee mug and fill it half way with water, and then add cinnnamon. Just heat in the microwave till it simmers and your house will smell wonderful. You can add different spices to your liking, I am just partial to cinnamon myself.
Of course on a cold winter day, I am known to simmer cinnamon sticks on the stove, but the above tip works great when someone calls to say they will be right over and time is of the essence!
So this tip works for me...feel free to share your tip over at We Are that Family.
