Homemade-FebreezeEvery time I visit “Instructables,” I wish I had more time to spare to delve deeper into it. I was there long enough to alert you to an inexpensive way to make your own Febreeze replacement!

step 1Get an empty spray bottle
You can use the empty febreeze bottle, or buy an empty new bottle at almost any store. i got mine at the dollar store ūüôā

step 2Add water
Add about 1 1/2 cups water to the spray bottle
step 3Add baking soda
Add one Tablespoon of baking soda. Cheap stuff works. I have also tried white vinegar. Works well if you are afraid the spray will leave spots on your fabric.
step 4Add fabric softener
Add about 1-2 Table spoons of your favorite fabric softener. I recently tried Tide Natruals, its been my favorite so far, but the cheap stuff works too.
step 5Shake well
After all the ingredients have been added, shake well. Also Shake before each use.
step 6Spray everywhere
Spray onto carpets, clothes, blankets, or anywhere that needs freshening. I use it daily, on all the fabrics in my home. Sometimes it leaves spots on hard surfaces, but easly wipe off with a damp rag. Hope this helps you guys, I had a very smelly room mate, and i always sprayed this stuff in our room and it helped out tons! Recipe can be doubled, tripled etc.
Commentors shared a few spins on the recipe based on experience and/or their particular allergies and sensitivities. You might also try:
MY RECIPIE: 1/2 CUP LAUNDRY DETERGENT (CUTS GREASE AND DISENFECTS) 1/4 CUP 3% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE (ANTI-GERM, ANTI-FUNGAL, ANTI-MOLD, AND BACTERIAL) 1/4 CUP RUBBING ALCOHOL (QUICK DRY) 2 CUPS WATER. *CLEANS AND DIS-INFECTS AIR AND FABRICS.*
IM GOING TO USE 1 1/2 WATER AND 1/2 CUP VIN. IN MY NEXT BATCH BECAUSE I HAVE USED VIN. TO CUT ODERS BEFORE. THE ACID IN THE VIN. KILLS THE ODERS.
Be careful, though. Apparently using these concoctions causes you to TYPE IN ALL CAPS AND become a dredful spellur.
