Make Your Own Fabric Freshener

By September 15, 2005

Follow me on:

How much money have I spent on Febreeze and other fabric fresheners over the years? Way too much. I have a kid, a dog and a cat that generate all sorts of interesting smells. I cook curries and Mexican food and, well, everything that comes out of my kitchen has some sort of smell good or bad. I've also got two couches and several rugs that suck up every smell that comes around. So I'm always walking through the house with spray bottle in hand.

So when I saw Dianne Hadaway's how-to for fabric freshener, I literally jumped for joy. And then I jumped into my laundry room to mix some up. I'm excited because not only can I use my own favorite fabric softener scent (in a strength I can determine), I can also use ingredients that I know are safe.

Shop baby section at Walmart. Look for spray of “Royal Violets”. It’s the best fabric and air freshener as well for babies bath.

to make a great air freshner use 2oz vodka and add your favorite essential oil ( # of drops is a personal preference) you put it in a small spray bottle and the scent ( because of the vodka) will last for years.
I also have used a bit of my favorite fabric softner (the concentrated version) if you want to use on fabric test a small area first.
