Use a Tea Bag to Freshen Small Spaces [Clever Uses]

29 Ago/09

Need to freshen a small space without a can of Lysol handy? Don’t buy over priced sachets and fresheners—just grab a fragrant tea bag.

The aisles of your local grocery have all sorts of scented candles, sprays, sachets of scented material, and other items to mask smells and fresh areas in your home. Why spend money on over-priced and chemical-laden scents? While traveling, writers for the home-centric blog Apartment Therapy discovered a simple air-freshening hack:

Yesterday we were flying back to LA from Seattle and had to take a series of smaller airplanes with just the one compact bathroom in the back. Normally these get pretty…stuffy early on in the flight and the people sitting close to it definitely have a worse flight. But on one of the flights we noticed that upon entering the bathroom it smelled kind of nice, but not like an air freshener, it just smelled pleasant. Shutting the door, we realized what it was.

There, hanging on the back of the door were 4 tea bags (Good Earth Spiced Tea to be exact). Because of the spices they held, it filled the tiny space with a natural aroma that wasn’t overpowering but just enough to absorb/mask the other smells. One of the flight attendants must have put the tea bags there to make it more pleasant for everyone. We loved how simple a solution it was using what they probably already had on hand. We plan to raid our tea drawer and try out some mint or chai tea in a hall closet or our own bathroom.

Tea is cheap, the scent of most tea is mild and pleasant, and you can easily refresh your little tea-bag sachet by tossing it and putting a new one in or with a drop or two of essential oil.

Have a trick of your own for freshening up small spaces around the home? Let’s hear about it in the comments below.
