DIY Febreze


A few months ago I stumbled upon a pin that will forever save me money. With the prices of Febreze being upwards of $3 and even $4 per spray can (and each one only lasting a month, give or take) I’m saving more than $48 a year. Yeah, I know, $48 isn’t all that much, but if you’re like me that $48 could be better spent elsewhere.

I think I can vouch for us all and say that fabric softener, baking soda, and tap water are all things we have around our homes. And that’s the thing, those three things are all you need to make Febreze! Not to mention it smells better than the real stuff! I’ve been using my DIY Febreze for months and I haven’t even stopped to look at the air fresheners in aisle 14.

You will need:

A clean, empty spray bottle (I just used an empty glass cleaner bottle)
1/8 cup liquid fabric softener
1-2 teaspoons baking soda
Hot tap water (it needs to be HOT in order for the fabric softener to mix well)

Mix the fabric softener and baking soda in the spray bottle.
Add the water and fill to the top.

Tip: My favorite fabric softener to use is Snuggle in Blue Sparkle scent.
