Homemade "Febreeze"





Introduction: Homemade "Febreeze"

Very cheap alternative to febreeze that WORKS. Been using for a long time.

Step 1: Get 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 :)

Step 2: Add Water

Add about 1 1/2 cups water to the spray bottle

Step 3: Add 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 4: Add 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 5: Shake Well

After all the ingredients have been added, shake well. Also Shake before each use.

Step 6: Spray 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.

    Fabris softener is flammable, how flammable do you think this mixture is?

    wait, is it febreeze or febreze? I've always known it as febreeze.


    I think the spelling of the name was changed when the formula was sold. I could be wrong because memories are a construct of what the brain wants you to believe.

    The Mandella effect for sure....Ive seen this one. idk what I remember, so weird.

    I made this but instead of baking soda I added 2 tbsp of vinegar and 1/4 cup of body spray and it even worked on the dog bed and it lasts 3 times as long as the fancy store bought stuff

    I made it a few hours ago, and I used Downy. To me, Downy smells horrible, but I used it anyways. I shook it. As expected, it smelled like dog poop. I added some Calvin Klein cologne to it (literally!) and used it on my rugs. It smelled pretty good, and made them feel new and fresh. Thanks!

    i have always made this with just the fabric softener and water. i stumbled on this today and added some baking soda and alcohol to my "normal" mixture - and WOW!
    the scent is lasting WAYYYYY longer than normal and my house smells so awesome and clean (BTW - i used Snuggle).
    thanks to the original poster, and for the additional comments and replies!

    If you add baking soda to any of these solutions that have vinegar in them you're probably going to have a mess when it starts foaming up.......I'm going to try the cornstarch with the vinegar and fabric softener......I have used the softener, vinegar and water for wrinkle release spray and it's great....just a heads up on the vinegar/baking soda reaction! :)

    You realize he said to use baking soda, or for an alternative white vinegar. Never said anything about mixing them. Just saying.
