Growing Boys + Sporty Husband = Smelly Trainers, lots and lots of them...Not quite sure how we have managed to reach this point, but all of a sudden my shoe cupboard is full of stinky trainers and football boots. I found this great idea via Pinterest on 'The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking' on how to make your own air freshener.
It's a beautifully simple idea and works a treat - basically Bicarbonate of Soda and your favourite essential oil mixed up in a jar with holes punched in the lid - shake gently to release extra smelling power. I used some clove oil - not everyone's cup of tea, but I love it's deep spicy scent and use it in a lot of homemade cleaning products for it's antibacterial qualities- you can usually pick it up for less than a pound in your local chemist.
Cheap and easy to make, I have put one in the shoe cupboard and dotted a few around the house - lovely!
