Day 25 : Bath or Toilet Bombs

bath-bombRemember how vinegar reacts to baking soda? Well, here is a similar one. Baking soda and citric acid (similar to vinegar but in a dry form). So that when it gets wet, poof it fizzes up. I can’t scientifically say whether it is actual deodorizing to a toilet (as toilet bombs), since the baking soda chemically reacts with the citric acid.

Day 14 : DIY Air Freshener

722_51023663440_5813_nAir freshener and carpet powder is not expensive but when you live on an old farm with more rotten smells than fresh ones, you go through a lot. I’ve always battled the cat area. It would be easier to not have cats but they keep it rodent free and I have a sentimental attachment.

After making this recipe a couple days ago I checked on it and it’s still going strong and absorbing smell. A couple days isn’t much, but for a homemade item battling cat smell that’s an accomplishment to me!

Day 3: Bathroom Accents

decorative-tree-branchToday, I will be looking into bathroom accents.  A cute bunch of flowers or decorative tree does wonders for even the smallest spaces.  I found bathroom bouquets to be similar to wedding center pieces so much that I used my sister’s leftover pieces to create a smaller version of her wedding tree in a vase. For inspiration look below or check Pinterest for wedding trees and create a mini version.
