  1. Is there a room deodorizer spray I can make with odor zapper? I have an old recliner that I feel would benefit being saturated with a spray made with this one!!!

  2. Excited to try these out! We have had sniffels around here so I’m gonna try the tissues today! Also, the big wipes in the summer!

    1. Oh my! Love the Sneezy Stop tissues idea. Looks like I need to buy Sneezy Stop now. The Plant Therapy blog is awesome. So many great DIY ideas that are easy and practical. Thanks Plant Therapy!!!!

  3. We need the Play-Doh today but I added calming the child instead of A+ attention. The kids are happily playing and their quiet! I should have made this sooner

  4. Just a quick question about the Odor Zapper Shoe Powder. The recipe calls for baking powder, should that read baking Soda?
    Thanks.
