It's a wonderful feeling when you realize you can make your favorite products at home. I had insomnia one night and was browsing facebook on my phone, when I came across something amazing. One of my friends had posted how to make your own Fabreeze fabric refresher. It looked so easy that I got up out of bed and made some.
The homemade fabric refresher was amazing! It took me all of 15 seconds to make it. I ran around my house in the dark (so I wouldn't wake anyone else up) spraying anything that was covered in fabric. Unfortunately, I can not give credit to who came up with this recipe, since it was a year ago that I saw it on my friend's facebook page and it's so easy to remember.
Homemade Fabric Refresher:
1/8 cup Fabric Softener (pick a scent you really love)
2 Tbsp. Baking Soda
Add fabric softener and baking soda to a spray bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with warm water and give a gentle shake.
That's it. There is no way to mess up making this fabric refresher. The above bottle of Downy (yes it is in Spanish, I live right on the US/Mexico border) was on sale and I had a coupon, so I actually made money to go towards my other groceries that day. But even at full price, the ingredients for homemade fabric refresher can't be more than 15 cents a bottle. Can't beat that!
And it works really well. Make sure to pick a fabric softener that has a scent that you like. I have not tried to make an unscented one, so I'm not sure how that would work. The contents do tend to separate though, so make sure to give it a shake every time you want to use it.
Gosh, I love this stuff. And who doesn't like saving money?
