Keep Clothing Fresh Without the Chemicals

Downy Unstopables revealed the “mystery celeb” whose face was obscured by a fresh-scented hoodie in teasers for its Super Bowl ad on Sunday: “Downy” McBride. The over-the-top Eastbound and Down and The Righteous Gemstones actor takes to the streets in a souped-up golf cart, firing containers of the product to neighbors with a modified T-shirt cannon. For those who want to keep their #closets smelling #fresh with fewer chemicals, however, The Organizing Blog recommends first #decluttering to give your #clothing some space to breathe, then placing natural #deodorizers such as dried herbs, homemade potpourri, cedar blocks or essential oils inside. #SuperBowlAds

Keep Your Car Smelling Fresh Naturally

Once your car is clean, you’ll want to keep it smelling fresh in a natural — and thrifty — way. Use essential oils to create an inexpensive, chemical-free air freshener, OneGoodThing suggests. Soak a clothespin in the essential oil of your choice (or put it inside a bag of fresh herbs such as mint or rosemary) and clip it to an air vent once it’s absorbed up the scent. Alternatively, you can make a Mason jar air freshener that fits in a cupholder, or craft a decorative felt-and-foam hanging air freshener that’s infused with a refreshing natural scent such as lemon, mint or lavender.
