Car Odor Absorber

Updated: Dec 24, 2021

Isn't it fun to take a drive without a destination in mind? When I get ready, the kids and the dog are ready to go and the more the merrier! With all of those bodies in the car, the little hanging cardboard shrubbery things can be so overpowering and don't help to get rid of the smells- just cover them.. Here is the solution!


What you'll need:


How to make it:

  • Trace two circles, using the outside of your canning ring, on the coffee filter. Cut out the circles and place both in your canning ring

  • Combine baking soda and essential oil in a bowl - a whisk works well to ensure your essential oil is mixed through the baking soda evenly

  • Add dried lavender buds to baking soda mixture, making sure lavender buds are evenly distributed throughout the mix

  • Pour baking soda mixture into canning jar, screw canning ring on the jar, then place your jar anywhere in your vehicle!


I place my jar in a cup holder. You can place it under a seat or anywhere you prefer! Once its time to make a new batch (usually 1-3 months), I add the used baking soda to a bag that is labeled "For Cleaning" and use it for my stove and glass shower doors.

How do you re-purpose old baking soda?
