One thing that seems unique to the PNW is the presence of "Coffee Shacks."
They are just cabins with drive-through windows.
Yes, Starbucks still exists and the coffee counter in the local grocery,
but these little coffee shacks are very popular.
We have continued to work on the odors in the rental house.
The plants are doing a good job.
The diffuser helps.
The many days of open windows have kept the air clean.
I am armed with autumn scented candles when the fall rains come.
my tip of the day is for the car ...
and it involves coffee.
We just love scents and have had a hard time finding something that worked great in the car.
Essential oil on cotton works for a very short time.
Yankee candle car fresheners are spendy.
Gels, vent sticks, ...
so many options.
When we arrived in the PNW,
I came across an air freshener that has been GREAT!
The tip was to put coffee (whole beans or grounds) in a sock,
hide under the seat.
Wow! we just love it.
It does take some discipline not to be tempted to pull into the local coffee "shack" when we smell the interior,
but it is working like a charm.
And when it wears off (it has been going a good 45 days),
we just empty the sock and start again!
