Homemade air Freshner

Valeree Dunbar


These gel air fresheners are the perfect project! They take a total of five minutes to make, are highly economical, and each jar should last you about
a month. Why do I put salt in? Salt helps to keep the gel from molding. Interesting fact isn't it? These would also make great gifts!

  5. Let these gel overnight and voila, you have air freshener.
