De-Stink Your BackPack - Right In Time For School!

Summertime is coming to an end and in prep for the new school year, have you pulled out some smelly backpacks? De-stink your backpacks, diaper bag, gym bag - any of your stinky bags and refresh them with just a couple of my favorite things!

Before we get started, I recommend going through the bag and clearing out anything that may be causing the smell (I've found a rogue sandwich lost in a pocket before). Once you've cleaned anything extra out grab a cotton ball and your favorite essential oils.

My favorites for refreshing stinky backpacks are:

  • Cheer
  • Lime
  • Purify
  • Melaluca
  • Litsea
I add two drops of each onto a cotton ball and place it into my bag. It freshens everything up, helps rid the bag of bacteria, and, most importantly, gets rid of that bag stink!

What essential oils do you love the smell of?
