I'm all for making my own cleaners. I save time and lots of money! If you have white vinegar, baking soda and lemons, you can clean your entire house. But, today I want to tell you how to make your own Febreeze.
Febreeze is great for freshening your house. It makes everything smell better, from curtains to mattresses to the dog bed. I have an old dachshund, so I need to freshen the house daily, trust me.
But, Febreeze can get expensive. So, I found a way to make it myself with things you probably already have. Bonus, it costs pennies to make!
3 cups warm water
2 TBS baking soda
4 TBS fabric softener (a good smelling one)
Mix everything together and stir well. Pour into a spray bottle (I saved an empty Febreeze bottle and cleaned it out). That's it! Easy!
It works great! I think it smelled even better than actual Febreeze. I chose a fabric softener with a fragrance I love, Gain. I have also made it with Snuggle, which was great, too. I love when I can customize something to my mood. The best part? No more dog smell! Give this a try. I promise it will be worth the few minutes to save money and have a fresh smelling house!
