‘La is two notes up from Fa.”

Today, on the market, is a product you can spray around your house and no one will ever know that real humans who perform bodily functions live there.  Wait.  That’s not a good start.  Try again.

Today it’s possible to purchase an air freshening product that infuses the air with a delightful aroma.  The product contains many interesting ingredients including something listed as an “oder eliminator derived from corn”.   My particular bottle of product also has the scent of lavender.  I’m confused.


But for those of you who want to disguise the actual comings and goings in your home, olfactory and otherwise, you can now save buckets of money and make your own spray.  I made that part up about saving buckets of money because I, as usual, haven’t a clue, so I just make things up.


1/4 cup Downy Beads, and who knows what they contain

4 T baking soda

1 cup boiling water


Mix together.  Pour into a spray bottle.  Spray.

For those of you who house animals besides humans, this mixture can be a salvation.


It looked so cute in the store!

For those of you living with someone who always cleaned up really well for a date and now fills your life with surprises, get yourself some Downy Beads and a spray bottle.  You probably have baking soda.

Bonus aroma hint – I just came across a closeout sale of essential oils.  I bought some Rose Essential Oil and sprinkled a few drops on the vacuum cleaner filter before I began to vacuum the house.  Fortunately, the amount of warmth given off by the vacuum did not ignite the oil.  Life is good, and so is the aroma in the house!
