The Fake Febreeze Recipe

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 C. Fabric Softener
2 C. Baking Soda
4 C. warm water

Mix and place in a spritzing bottle. Use just like you would the expensive
Febreeze from the store. If you want, you can use the unscented fabric softener and then add a few drops of essential oil to make it a scent that you prefer. I just use Snuggle.

I've been whining to some of my friends about my financial problems this month- and one of them sent it to me. I have no idea where she got it.

I am so excited! I have wanted to buy Febreeze, but for how much you get it seemed quite expensive! I have had it before with a coupon. Thanks so much for the recipe!

What all can you use Febreeze for? I've seen it in the store but never looked close because of the price.

Not on anything I've tried it on- but most of my stuff is pretty wash/wear. No satins or anything like that.

ok, just wanted to know before i tried it on the sofa. i guess i'll try it on the cushion that has a tear on it. i have a new cover to go on it so if it stains, it will get covered up anyway.

I love Febreeze and once I buy some liquid fabric softener, I'm going to try this one.
