I am a very frugal person. I cannot stand to spend money on something that I know I can make very inexpensively at home. One of those things is Febreze. It is so stinking expensive, but I love the smell of it. Recently though, I discovered — thanks to the help of Pinterest — how to make Homemade Febreze.
Between the dog, the smelly work clothes, and cooking all the time — there are always different scents in my home, but to be honest, I love a home that smells clean. I don't want to smell fried chicken or bodily smells that come from the back end (if you know what I mean), so I am constantly going around spraying this everywhere.
How to Make Homemade Febreze
What You Need:
- 2 cups warm water
- 1/4 cup liquid fabric softener
- 1 tsp. baking soda
Simply mix these three ingredients together in a spray bottle (I just used an old Febreze bottle that I had on hand), shake well, and start spraying! The great part about this recipe (aside from how well it works and how much money you can save) is that the scent isn’t terribly strong or overpowering. Our home smells like clean laundry for a short time, then the scent quickly dissipates taking any bad smells with it!
