Y’all. I’m going to get super real with you for a second. My house smells like a foot. Or rather, it smells like my son’s feet.
And it’s just gross. This whole nearly pre-teen who plays really hard and ends up sweaty like he worked out at the gym for 8 hours is getting old.
It wouldn’t be so bad if he didn’t leave his smelly, dirty socks all over the freaking house.
I’ve found dirty socks literally everywhere, Y’all.
On the dining room table. On the kitchen floor. In the bathroom (okay, okay, that’s kind of reasonable). In my office. My. OFFICE. In my mudroom.
Basically all over the house. And it’s absolutely disgusting.
But he’s eight, and he doesn’t mean to smell like a foot. Or rather, his feet smell like a stinky, sweaty locker room.
And I am super over it, so I made a room spray that I use whenever I start to smell something funky.
I used my favorite essential oils in the spray, and it’s been nothing short of magical.
