Deodorise A Room With A Bowl Of Vinegar

If you've run out of air freshener but your living room is starting to smell a little funky, you can clear that smell right up with just a bowl of vinegar.

From the "you-don't-need-to-buy-this-because-you-already-have-it" files: we already know vinegar has some stink-reducing abilities, but what you may not have realised is that you can de-odourise a smelly room just by sticking a bowl of vinegar in the corner. After a few hours, you'll notice the odour is gone, and once you get rid of that vinegar, the room should smell fresher. Plus, you don't need to spray it around, and it won't make you sneeze.
