If you like their scent, you can easily make a particularly sparkling room spray yourself.

Even in poorly stocked kitchens you can usually find lemons.

After they've served their purpose as a salad dressing or as a juice squirt in the water, they usually end up in the trash.

The bowl has so much more to offer, especially in the household it can be used well with its refreshing scent.

The scent of the south and lemon groves cannot be brought directly into your own four walls, but you can imitate it quite well to cover up unwanted kitchen smells or bad air.

While store-bought room fragrances often smell very chemically and contain unhealthy ingredients, a homemade lemon spray is pure nature.

You only need three ingredients for this: lemon, vodka and distilled water.

Vodka isn't just for drinking.

As a high-proof, odorless alcohol, it is very well suited to dissolving and transporting aromas.

And unlike water, bacteria find it very difficult to survive in it and the spray lasts longer.

For the room fragrance, take the grated zest of a lemon (preferably organic) and mix it with 100 milliliters of vodka in a sealable glass.

Seal the jar and set the mixture aside for three days.

Pour the brew through a coffee or tea filter into a spray bottle and fill up with about 300 milliliters of distilled water,

Shake well before each use.

Baking soda increases the effect against stuffiness

If you like, you can dissolve 20 grams of baking soda in the distilled water to better neutralize bad smells.

If you want to intensify the aroma, you can of course help with essential citrus oils and choose a tart bergamot or sweet orange note.
