As pleasant as the kitchen odors are, they are unfortunately too tenacious to become bearable once the meal is finished. No one likes to sleep in the middle of the scent of fried onions. At least I presume it because having tested the thing, I found it rather unpleasant. On the other hand, I don't really like the idea of ​​spraying a chemical supposed to neutralize odors. I wanted to find a way to do this very gently and without going back to the supermarket box. To create this cute and homemade air freshener, three very simple ingredients are enough: coarse salt, a citrus fruit and fresh herbs (or spices). I tried to understand how the combination of the three could act on the neutralization of odors but I did not find convincing scientific explanations. What is certain is that these three are regularly used as grandmother remedies for bad smells, I decided to trust.
To start, you need to empty a citrus fruit like an orange, a lemon or a grapefruit. We take the opportunity to make a good juice or to simply eat a few quarters. This is the strong point of this DIY which also allows you to recycle your citrus peels.
I chose to use an old glass but it is quite possible to be satisfied with the citrus fruit as a container. With the glass, I took my precautions to prevent the coarse salt from dispersing. Once the citrus half is emptied, just fill it with coarse salt and add fresh herbs or spices. For mine, my choice fell on an orange - mint combination but we can also compose recipes with basil, cloves or even cinnamon. Make it according to your tastes.
After a few days, the herbs must obviously be replaced. On the Free People tutorial that I followed, we also recommend changing the salt after a few days, but that seems a bit exaggerated.
For an even more powerful effect, some people do not hesitate to add a few drops of essential oils to the coarse salt.

The verdict

Let's be honest, it doesn't smell like lemon when you walk into the kitchen. On the other hand, the odors of cooking and in particular of frying are well attenuated thanks to this house system. And above all, it is much more decorative!
