The one natural ingredient that I have found that works better than anything to remove household odors is charcoal. Trust me when I say I have tried it all. From essential oils to vinegar to baking soda, nothing works quite like charcoal does. It is a very porous carbon, which attracts and holds odor like nothing else! I use charcoal to remove the odor from many places in my home.

Here are my top 3 favorite places to use charcoal:

 

Banish kitty litter odor

Sprinkle 1-2 teaspoons into clean litter. Give it a little mix.

 

Banish closet & fridge odor

Put 2-3 tablespoons in a small muslin bag. Place in your closet or refrigerator. You’ll be amazed at the amount of odor it absorbs!
