Accidental Air Freshener
Today we discovered yet another side-benefit of letting the kids put things away when we get back from the grocery store. Earlier in the week, I asked one of the girls to put the box of dryer sheets on top of the new box of laundry soap in the laundry room, which she did. Yesterday as I was working on laundry, my littlest helper (18 months) knocked it off, and since my hands were full, I left it where it fell and forgot about it. This morning, after the heater had come on a few times in the night, the entire downstairs smelled wonderful...like fresh flowers. The scent was strongest in the laundry room, and I finally found the box of dryer sheets where it had fallen -- back down in a corner, on top of one of the heating vents. And I'm thinking about leaving it there!
