Vanilla & Clove Air Freshener

It seems that most homemade air freshener recipes out there require some sort of scenty essential oils – however, since I don’t have any at the moment I discovered this recipe for a vanilla and clove-scented version.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup household vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
Bring all ingredients to a boil then simmer over medium heat for two minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.  Strain cloves then pour liquid into spray bottle, shake and use as needed.


Not much else to add, the process was very simple.


Smells good so far….the challenge will be to see if the vinegar neutralizes the really tough stinky stuff!  We’ll put it to the test at first opportunity.
