Homemade Febreze

I'm cheap!

And I have three dogs!

And I love a clean smelling house!

Like a Febreze smelling house!

Did I say I was cheap?


So $5 a pop on Febreze isn't going to fly!

Even with coupons, that's a crazy price!

Especially when you can make it yourself!

It's easy!

And cheap!

You'll need:

1/8 cup of fabric softener (Downy will make it smell most like Febreze)
2 tablespoons Baking Soda
Hot water
Spray bottle (the old Febreze bottle is perfect)
A funnel

Grab the funnel, measure the fabric softener and baking soda and dump it into the funnel that you're now holding over the open spray bottle into your spray bottle. It's going to clog :( Use the the straw attached to the sprayer part and unclog that sucker. Turn on the faucet and fill the spray bottle with hot tap water, screw the top back on and then shake well. Voila! You just made Febreze for a lot less than the store bought!

(I found this recipe on the internet, if you don't like it, you can find a bunch of others or you can adjust it to your liking. More fabric softener, more baking soda, different fabric softener. This is just one I tried and I like.)

Well, that sounds awesome - and a lot cheaper than Febreze!

So can you tell me what to do about dog hair and getting it off upholstery?

I've tried e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.
