Bye-Bye Stinky Room

See those cute little sachets in the middle of this picture: I saw these little sachets while strolling through the baby section at Target picking up diapers, wipes and those handy, oh so handy little bags at the top of the picture. I immediately picked up the package and almost threw it into my cart thinking 'This is great! A cute little lavender scented sachet with baking soda to absorb the odors! Perfect for the twins stinky room!' (Despite the Diaper Champ it still just isn't as fresh as I think it should be.) Then I stopped. Why spend $5 on 2 of these sachets??? I could make these!
So, yesterday during the twins nap (which is hardly never longer than 30 children think sleep is for the weak...especially sleeping at the same time...I think they have a pact for one to keep watch while the other sleeps!) I made these:

Scraps of fabric from stash were used and all I had to purchase was the baking soda.
I placed one in the bottom of the diaper champ and one in a Longaberger basket hanging from a peg above the changing table.
The result: A breath of fresh air in the twins room. All for the low price of 57 cents.

I have to make some of these. What a great idea! Did you add any lavender in with the baking powder or is that a waste of smell? Doesn't time fly when you are having fun. I can't believe how old the twins are already.Cherrie

I was wondering about the baking soda bit as well. Did you add something else to it? Very cute sachets!
