Homemade Cat litter/room/carpet Deodorizer

Let's face it...LIFE STINKS!!
that having been said...the litter box is STINKY!!!  I spent $5 on the citrus baking soda litter box deodorizer and it worked great....but they don't make it in any other scent!! So I bought several boxes of cheap, generic baking soda and several small bottles of different scented essential oils....Guess what??? I can get the same amount for less than $2 and depending on my mood use a different scent :()

1 clean, dry mason jar or even an old coo whip tub will do
1 box baking soda
10-15 drops of essential oil
1 nail
1 hammer
 a small board/piece of 2x4 works great
1 large darning needle

 1) Put the lid of jar or tub on the piece of wood and use the nail and hammer to poke holes into lid for sprinkling

  Pour in the baking soda and add oil...just a few drops at a time til you get the desired strength of scent that you prefer. Put the lid on and shake...then open, sniff, add more oil if needed....

  For the carpet just sprinkle this on a few minutes prior to vacuuming....keeps the whole room smelling clean and keeps you happy :)

  OR....when putting the lid on the mason jar leave the insert out and using the fabric, cut out a circle but allow at least 1-2" larger than the lid of your jar or container, poke holes in it with a large darning needle, then put the outer ring of the jar over it and screw it on...or use a length of ribbon to tie on your fabric top...set in the room to freshen :)

Around the holidays I like to use clove oil :)
