How do you make a homemade car air freshener?
Can I DIY an air freshener for my car? If so, how? I love the smell of store-bought air fresheners, but I'm worried about toxic chemicals.
“If you want a more natural approach to freshen up the air in your car, try using peppermint or citrus oil.
- Put several drops of peppermint or citrus oil on a clothespin and clip it to your air vent.
- Get a piece of foam and add peppermint oil to it. Hang it from your mirror or put it under your seat.
- Fill a mason jar 2/3 of the way with baking soda. Add a few drops of peppermint oil. Screw on the lid, then poke holes in it. Place the jar under your seat.
Keep in mind that you should check your state’s laws to make sure that hanging something from the rearview mirror is legal. If it’s not, you risk being pulled over. And driving infractions can cause your car insurance rates to rise.
Avoid paying too much for car insurance driving safely and using the Jerry app (once you’ve parked, of course). Jerry will gather quotes from the top 50 insurance companies and deliver them straight to your phone. No calling around. No hard work. Just savings.”

Is Root car insurance legitimate? "
"I feel like I am severely overpaying for my bare-minimum, liability-only car insurance. I heard about Root Insurance and took a test drive to get a quote. The amount of money that I would be saving each month by switching is unbelievable. Is this for real or is it too good to be true? "
