Cabinet air freshener and dehumidifier | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

While we’re all cooped up at home, we can do the little things we dream of doing to make our homes smell and feel lovelier.

We all know that rice absorbs moisture, and with the ever-changing weather, we need to protect and freshen up our cabinets and drawers.

Here is an easy trick that will help you fight moisture and mold.

Tips: Use a bigger bowl for a bigger closet.

This freshener can last a month or longer in your cabinet. Refresh by taking the bowl out and airing the rice grains, then add a few drops of essential oil weekly or when you feel the need.

White rice lasts longer than brown rice or other grains.

You will need: white rice grains, bowl, essential oil, breathable pouch

Pour grains of rice into a bowl.

Add 4-6 drops of essential oil to the rice grains.

Put the bowl inside a pouch.

If you don’t have a ready pouch, any breathable fabric will do, and you can tie it with a ribbon or an elastic band. INQ
