My friend Karen said when they cook fish or other smelly food they just sit out a container with vinegar in it to absorb odors.  She told me that the other day when I was apologizing, because my house smelled like bacon.  Not that bacon is a bad thing, but who wants their guest to smell bacon when they walk in the front door?!

  1. I had been mopping with vinegar, but even though it gets things clean, it stinks, bad. My husband hates the smell of it, so we switched to fabuloso floor wash, which smells amazing and does a good job cleaning, but probably isn’t all that natural. I wonder if this would work for mopping too… I’ll have to make some and find out!

  2. I am very much into all natural as I can get so this is right up my alley! Will definitely give it a try! 🙂

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend Debbie!


  3. Ooh love the idea of natural cleaning Debbie. I think I’ll go with orange next time I peel one. pinning to remember
    Have a great weekend

  4. My kids can smell vinegar a mile away, they complain so I never use it. But then again…. I don’t clean that much anymore either! (Shhhhh don’t tell).
