Nothing can freshen a room better than a few sprays of Febreze. Unfortunately, it is expensive and an average family can burn through a bottle very quickly.
But here’s the good news: You can make it yourself. And you don’t have to be an expert in molecular nuclear physics to do it! I most often make mine with essential oils instead of fabric softener, but I’ll give you both versions:
The basic recipe: In a 32 ounce spray bottle (clean and use your old Febreze bottle) pour 4 tablespoons of liquid fabric softener. Fill the bottle the rest of the way with water, leaving a little space at the top. Give it a shake and there you have it. You just made your own Febreze.
The essential oil version: Fill a clean 32 ounce spray bottle with water, leaving space at the top for shaking. Use about 1/4 to 3/4 teaspoon of essential oil in place of liquid fabric softener. Lavender and rose are my current favorites.
Whichever one you try, use it just as you would real Febreze.
