Make your own febreeze!!

Get out the funk with Instructabler killhannahfreak2's homemade Febreze recipe. Here's what you'll need to whip up a batch:    
  • an empty spray bottle
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of fabric softener
The how-to is pretty self-explanatory, but a link is always welcomed. 
Commenter nikholemarie offered up her recipe as well. Here it is:
  • 1/2 cup laundry detergent
  • 1/4 cup, 3% hydrogen peroxide
  • 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
  • 2 cups of water
She assures us they won't bleach out the fabrics onto which we spray it. 
If these two recipes don't strike your fancy, here's four more from TipNut:

Recipe #1
1 cup fabric softener
1 cup white vinegar
2 cups water
Recipe #2
2 cups water
1 cup fabric softener
Recipe #3
3 cups water
3 TBS fabric softener
3 TBS rubbing alcohol
Recipe #4
2 cups water (warm)
1/4 cup fabric softener
1 TBS baking soda
If you want to skip the fabric softener and detergent, how about this one?

  • 50% inexpensive Vodka
  • 50% water

Funny how the one with booze seems like the most 'natural' of all of these. 


  1. Thanks so much for sharing these. I have to try one to see how it does.
