You will never buy expensive air fresheners again after you try this easy 3 ingredient recipe.
Many air freshener brands advertise their products as “pure” or “natural,” Since those terms are not regulated, any manufacturer can slap those words on a package and fool the public into thinking a product is safe.
Ingredients commonly used in fragrances in air fresheners include phthalates, which make fragrances last longer and are linked to male reproductive system birth defects and hormone disruption, and synthetic musks, which are linked to allergies and hormone disruption.
It’s easy to make your own air freshener spray, and you won’t have to worry about toxic chemical residue on the baby’s crib–on the dog’s chew toys–on anything at all.
