DIY Febreze With No Fabric Softener. Our home has been one that consumes bottles and bottles of Febreze Fabric Enhancer, ha ha! Febreze seems to be one of those items even when using a coupon it is still outrageously expensive. I seen some tips online on how to use Fabric Softener to create DIY Febreze at home. After reading the comments and seeing a trend, I decide to not use the Fabric softener route as it seems to leave a residue behind.
A few weeks back, I received in a trial of the Febreze Unstopables Fresh Scent. The thought immediately popped into mind at giving these a try in making some Homemade Febreze.
I had some who had been sick recently and was going to need to purchase more Febreze as they had my carpets smelling quite stinky ha ha. So, I whipped up this quick and easy batch of DIY Febreze without Fabric Softener. Made with quick handy ingredients, and at a fraction of the cost of normal Febreze and I would be a happy camper.
1/4 Cup of Downy Unstopables – You can use less but I had some nasty odors lingering
4 Tablespoons of Baking Soda
1 Cup of HOT Water
In a mixing bowl or measuring cup combine all the ingredients and stir. Allow them to dissolve for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. After the 30 minutes, your beads and baking soda should be dissolved. Add your mixture to a spray bottle. My spray bottle is 14 ounces. Then fill the rest of your bottle with water.
After spraying my furniture, rugs and drapes last week I noticed that I had no film or residue left behind and it left everything smelling great. I love knowing that I can whip up a fresh batch on the fly. I did notice that I do not have to use quite as much as I did with real febreze. I lightly misted everything one time vs two times with Febreze. So, this will last much longer for sure.
This DIY project will save me and I’m glad I decided to give it a try. One container of Unstoppables was sale priced at $4.50 and I used a coupon for additional savings. I figured this one container of DIY Febreze will cost me about $0.60 instead of the high Febreze price. But, I REALLY liked the price of my first bottle FREE.
