Baking soda, lemon juice and white vinegar to the rescue

In a spray bottle add equal parts water, white vinegar, and real lemon juice, leaving a few inches of space at the top. Add a little bit of laundry detergent and baking soda and now you have a multipurpose product. You can spray the mixture into the air to freshen the atmosphere, or on furniture and pillows to refresh them. Spritz the solution on shower curtains, bedspreads, and sheets. You can even use this kitchen hack to clean appliances, countertops, and tables -- it also works great in closets and can even be sprayed on clothing to remove odors.

You can use the solution to wash down walls and also to keep the inside of your vehicle smelling fresh. This is a great non-chemical method to clean and freshen, especially for those who want to go green.

Adjust the ingredients in this kitchen hack to your personal taste

You may need to adjust the amount of white vinegar and lemon juice based on your personal preferences.

A little less or a little more will make a difference in the scent of the solution. One person may enjoy smelling the scent of lemon while another may not want any one ingredient to overpower the others. Using equal parts water, lemon juice, and vinegar usually provides a fresh clean scent that is aided by the addition of the baking soda and laundry detergent.

This kitchen hack is very inexpensive and the ingredients can all be purchased at the Dollar Tree. Keep several spray bottles on hand with different colored tops and designate each for a particular room in the house. Make sure to always have one on hand in the kitchen and bathroom. You might alsdo keep one in the trunk of your vehicle. Using the combination of lemon juice, white vinegar and baking soda is a safe, effective method to clean and freshen.
