If you want your home to smell delightful without spending money on expensive candles or chemical air fresheners, there's a simple, cost-effective way to create a fragrance that will make your space smell like it belongs to the affluent.

Are you seeking a straightforward and affordable method to craft a natural air freshener? A specific TikTok has shared a solution that might make you rethink purchasing pricey scent sticks or spray fresheners again.

Luan is a TikToker who frequently posts DIY and home renovation tips on his profile. With over 680,000 followers, his affordable and effective solutions often impress his audience. Recently, he revealed a trick for achieving what he describes as a "rich person's scent," claiming it makes his house smell exceptionally upscale.

How to create a homemade air freshener

In the tutorial, Luan from the TikTok profile @tipsfromluan highlighted his affinity for citrus scents. He began by quartering limes and then sprinkling each piece with a teaspoon of coarse salt. Following this, he poured 3 teaspoons of rubbing alcohol into each bowl containing the citrus slices.

Luan showcased three different versions of the homemade freshener. To the base mixture of lime, salt, and rubbing alcohol, one variant added half a cap of any fabric softener to amplify the fragrance, while another included cloves for their pest-repelling qualities.

Optimal locations for homemade air fresheners

Luan mentioned that all three versions of the homemade air fresheners are ideal for any household setting. He places the basic concoction in the bathroom and the one infused with cloves near windows to ward off flies and mosquitoes.

The variant with fabric softener is strategically placed in the living room, where its potent and lovely aroma captures visitors' attention, prompting them to inquire about the source of the pleasant smell. Luan believes that once you try making these air fresheners, you'll never feel the need to purchase commercial scents again.
