The day I found out that lighting a match could replace bathroom air fresheners, I felt like I had finally been let in on a giant secret of the universe. Why had this secret been kept from me for so long? Why did I have to suffer for years and years with overly fragrant, toxic bathroom sprays that didn’t really work anyway? I hope I was the last person to learn of this secret, but just in case I wasn’t, this actually works. It’s not the flame, it’s the lighting of the match and the smoke after blowing it out. Light one or two, let them burn for a few seconds and then blow them out. Run them under water to make sure they’re fully extinguished and toss in with compostables. And now you know. You’re welcome. Obviously not the best zero waste solution if there are kids in the house, but child free here and matches can be found in both bathrooms on the back of the toilet in either a cute basket or ceramic bowl.
I haven't tried this myself, but this looks promising as an alternative to store bought sprays and matches.
