A Clean Manor provides fresh and simple ideas for a clean and organized home.

We received this tip about freshening your home from our reader, Natalie, and thought it was a great tip!

I worry about using those carpet fresheners (powders and sprays) with a baby being on the ground, so i found a new way to accomplish the same thing without putting anything on the floor.  If you have a bagless vacuum you can put air fresheners in the filter part.  I put a handful of Renuzit crystals in the filter holder of mine and now it smells great every time I vacuum, which is a lot! Also, every once in a while, i will febreeze the furnace filter, so whenever the air/heat kicks on, it smells good!  This could be done in a house where allergies are a problem as well.

Interesting idea! I may have to try it. I don't like to buy the store powders either...I worry about what is in them. I use baking soda instead. I use either straight (if I don't care about a scent) or I use it mixed with essential oils. The mix I just made up is an EO called 'Hawaiian Breeze' and is a mix of plumeria, pineapple and I don't know what else...Oh my, my house smells good! I sprinkle the baking soda on my carpet, let it sit for at least 10 minutes and then vacuum away. First time to your blog...I like it!!
