A busy mom’s way to neutralize the diaper smell

What mom doesn't hate the dreaded diaper smell? I will never forget when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, a sweet family member gave me this smell good stuffed animal as a gift. I remember it smelling like strawberry shortcake. As I opened the gift she announced, “Everyone of our friends, when we walk in their house, we can always smell diapers. It's a mom's curse. Hopefully this will help.” At that very moment, I seriously became addicted to plug in air fresheners and the spray stuff. It was how I was going to battle the stink, cause I was on a serious mission not to be that house that smelled of yucky, stinky diapers. Even though my house “smelled nice” it gave me headaches and quite frankly was getting expensive just to mask the smell.

My new mission when I started my addiction to Pinterest was to figure out a cost saving and healthier way to help kill the odor. Now first off, I will say once we change a diaper if it is a disposable one we take it straight outside to the trash. If I'm in the cloth diaper mood that week, it goes into the air tight storage bin till wash time. Even with these two steps, you still have “That Smell”.

Here is how I neutralize the smell and save a ton of money! I made one batch of the below recipe and it has lasted me almost three months. I use this spray bottle at the least thirty times a day. Every diaper change, gets a spray or two. Someone uses the restroom, a spray or two. The dog sneaks inside, 2 spray or two. I'm cooking in the kitchen and I burn supper, about a dozen sprays. You get the picture right. This stuff gets a workout. What I love, is that it doesn't hang out masking the odor, it neutralizes it and then your house just smells fresh. No perfume smell or cover ups.

One batch of this spray will cost you about $0.64 if you use only kit oils it can be even less! I just have a fascination with all things Eucalyptus.

Now if you want to use just kit oils you can replace the eucalyptus with more lemon or replace with say peppermint. This is a light smelling spray. Because oil and water don't mix you will want to lightly shake the bottle before you spray to evenly disperse the essential oils. If you like a stronger more lasting spray feel free to use more drops of oils. This recipe was just how I like it, light, clean, fresh with not much lingering effect.

If you're looking for great 2oz glass spray bottles below are the ones I use including my top picks for other essential oil tools!

So the big test for this spray came a few weeks ago. We had some out of town friends stop by to say hello. I had just finished changing a diaper when my friend came into the house. Her first comment was, “How do you get your house to not smell of diapers!” Yes, I was a happy momma.
