Green Your Car: Make Your Own Air Freshener

DIY car air freshener Driving is one of the least green modes of transportation, but there are ways of being eco-friendly even while in a car. This week’s tips will help you have less of an impact the next time you have to drive.

Tip #2: DIY Air Freshener

Store-bought air fresheners aren’t very good for the environment; most are made of paper and filled with chemicals. The next time you want your car smelling fresher, take matters into your own hands by making your own air freshener. Find an old blanket or old piece of clothing and cut out a shape of your choice. Next, affix the cloth to a piece of cardboard (keep it the same size), decorate it, then soak the fabric in your favorite essential oil.

Tell us: What will your finished product smell like?
