So I bought a $8 air freshner "packet" that lasted about a month. It had some sort of plastic beads inside a fabric pouch. I liked it. But I didnt like the price tag. So by accident and obsession, I discovered a very easy, very fast, make at home imitation air freshener that lasts just as long. Well, I'm just guessing here, I just made them last week, but the smell is so fresh and potent that I believe it will last for a while.
Step 1: Get Your Stuff
So you will need three things:
Purex Crystals (in the laundry dept.)
mesh fabric or tulle netting (with tiny holes)
Step 2: Piece It
So cut yourself a 5'x10' or so rectangle of the tulle, netting or mesh.
Fold in half, hamburger style.
Sew two sides- about 1/2 inch from the side
(get creative, on these pictured I used a simple stitch, but I have prettier ones that I will use for gifts)
Fill the packet with about two tablespoons of the crystals.
Sew the open side.
