And sometimes there are cooking odors and other smells that just can't be dealt with that way. So what's a girl to do? I don't want to use the chemical sprays that typically don't smell all that great to begin with. Not only do I not like the look of the air fresheners that stick on the wall or sit on the shelf, but I don't feel that those types of fresheners are good for our olfactory senses. I've read that you can leave a jar or saucer of vinegar out to help deal with those types of smells, but I wanted it to look nice. So I went on the hunt for a jar:
Not only does the vinegar keep algae and other things from growing in the jar, but it looks pretty cute. And since I got the jar through a swap with my friends and my mother gave my son the little fish, it didn't cost me a dime.
