I love Febreze. Because let's face it trying to wash a couch is a hassle. But it can drain your budget fast especially when you use it like I do to get away with not having to wash the comforters on the beds as often or shampoo carpets, or wash the curtains but still want the just washed smell. I'm not the only one right?!
Well if you use Febreze you know it's not cheap. So I went on a hunt to find a way to make my own! This is the best recipe I have found! This homemade Febreeze is simple to make and is MUCH cheaper! I sat down to figure out the price once. You can buy Snuggle online for $4.99 and baking soda for under $1. I figured each bottle cost less than 25¢ to make. Febreze in store at it's lowest is just over $4 a bottle. HUGE savings when you use several bottles a month!
You can customize this recipe with any scent of fabric softener, or get an unscented on and add a few drops of essential oils.
