Holiday Air Fresheners Recipe Tips

  • It is best to let your spray "marinate" for about a day so the scents have time to mingle. Be sure to shake spray before using each time.
  • Distilled or filtered water is preferred to keep the integrity of your spray mixture pure (impurities in tap water could alter your spray).
