Updated on February 23, 2012

Have you stopped buying febreeze because it is just way to expensive? I used to buy it on rare occasions but now I have my own recipe that smells even better and I can refill it right at home! I don't even have to go to the store to get the ingredients it is really that simple. You only need 4 things to make your own febreeze and you most likely have all of them the only thing you might need to buy is the bottle but that is just a one time thing. You can reuse your bottle over and over again. Changing up the scents of your frebreeze is no problem because all you have to do is use a different fabric softner! Here is the secret recipe try it out, change up the scents, change up the look do whatever you want.

Supplies:

Plastic reusable spray bottle

Directions:

Mix together your fabric softener and baking soda and shake shake shake it in the bottle. Then fill your bottle with the hot tap water and shake some more :) And your are all done! To reuse just repeat the recipe and you are set! You will be saving so much money by making your own febreze.

      Thanks Cindi! I'm glad you liked it and I know what you mean no one can afford to pay so much for stuff like spray or things to clean your clothes. I love writing hubs about things that are homemade so everyone can do it and save so much money! Thanks for commenting girl:)

      I am going to try this !! I have already began to make my own laundry soap... I'm sorry, but $12 a bottle for liquid laundry soap is RIDICULOUS. I have been making my own now for a couple of months and it's A) cheaper, B)last's longer, and C) a plumber at the hardware store told me that because it dissolves better (less suds) that it's better for pipes and septic ! I think ALL of us could benefit from going back to home made !!! THANKS

      Great suggestion, I think the scent is too strong this way I can reduce it a little...
