Why you should keep a jar of rice in your closet

Rice is used worldwide in different menus. But rice has other uses, beyond the kitchen. And maybe some of you used rice to dry your mobile phones out of the water. And that’s because rice absorbs water molecules. However, did you know that rice can be used for other purposes?

Here is the reason you should keep a jar of rice in your closet:

Did you know that rice removes bad smells? Placing a jar of rice in a smelly space makes wonders. Today you will find out how to make a deodorizer for your dressing or closet. It’s cheap and environmentally friendly. All you need is:

  • a jar
  • rice
  • essential oil

If you are dealing with a space that smells bad, then you can use lemongrass essential oil. And if you want to bring a fresh smell into your wardrobe, then use subtle essences such as mint, roses or lavender essential oil.

Here’s how to do it:

Put a cup or two of rice in a glass jar. Add between 10-20 drops of your favorite essential oil. Optionally, cover the jar lid with an air-permeable material, and secure it with an elastic. Mix well the content of the jar to distribute the oil everywhere. Apply this amazing trick for every closet in the house or in small spaces. If you feel that the rice in the jar doesn’t work, shake it to add some freshness. Such a homemade product can last between four and six months.

If you are a smoker, this trick can be a lifesaver for you. I don’t, you will still appreciate it. I’m not a smoker, but I love this trick because it’s cheap, very effective and last a very long time. You can also decorate the jar and transform it into a home decoration. It will look beautiful.
