DIY: Febreeze Spray
- Made with your favorite scent booster or fabric softener
I am absolutely obsessed with the scent of fresh laundry!! The fresh scents are very uplifting! ( I also have an obsession with smells of cleaning products like Pinesol, lol! But that’s a whole different issue we can get into at a later time. ) We have a large household; 6 people total (including 3 active males), 3 dogs and a cat! Needless to say, this D.I.Y Febreeze comes in handy when I need to quickly “de-stink” any fabric surface and carpet. No need to go buy a $4-$5.00 bottle at the store, or the not-so-awesome smelling versions at the dollar store (great price, but the dollar store fabric re-freshers just don’t last). Just use your own favorite scent boosters and/or fabric softeners that you already have in your
So here you go… How to make your own Febreeze, for pennies! And…. it REALLY WORKS! (Don’t forget to Pin this one!)
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Large Spray bottle (24-28 oz)
- 1/3 cup (cap full) of your favorite Scent Booster OR Fabric Softener
- 1/3 cup Baking Soda
- 1 Cup HOT water
- Enough room temp/tap water for remainder of spray bottle
- Funnel (optional)
*Note: If you want to use less: you can use 1/4 cup of the scent booster and baking soda instead of 1/3 cup. I chose to make it with 1/3 cup because it is more concentrated and the fresh scent that I love (in my opinion) is longer lasting and noticeable (the way I like it).
- Mix equal parts (1/3 cup) of each: baking soda and scent booster or fabric softener into 1 cup of HOT water; allow to dissolve (you can use a whisk or utensil to mix it well as it dissolves)
- Once dissolved, I used a funnel to transfer the mix into the spray bottle
- Top off your bottle with room temp (tap or filtered) water
- Shake well before use
That’s it! you are done. Spray away and take in that amazing clean and fresh scent! You will be addicted to spraying everything, lol! I even have a small (travel size) spray bottle in my bag as well!
