Act 102

Make your own air freshener.

It disturbs me that air fresheners so powerful they mask the odour of food so rotten it could poison you, are sold.

If you really feel the need to freshen the air, make your own. A bruised apple, some lemon zest, a bit of cinnamon left to simmer on the stove with some water will do the trick instead.

Bad odour is nature’s way of telling us something needs to be addressed or paid attention to – like debt, come to think of it – if you have it, your finances are trying to tell you something. Covering it up does nothing but mask the problem. Once you’ve sniffed it out, deal with it.
