If you've got an active family, you know that keeping your home smelling fresh isn't always easy. Febreze is your best friend when it comes to deodorizing furniture, sports equipment, and pet odors. Unfortunately, if your family goes through the Febreze like mine does, you know it can add up and get quite expensive after a while.
Living in a stinky house is not an option, but luckily there is an alternative to racking up expensive Febreze bills. With only a few simple household ingredients, you can easily make your own odor-neutralizing home-freshening spray. Unlike other DIY freshening sprays, this spray is unique in that it doesn't contain any fabric softener. Fabric softeners are good odor neutralizers, but they can leave a residue on your fabrics and can irritate sensitive skin types. So check out this simple recipe and start freshening up your home now!
- 1/4 Cup of Downy Unstoppables
- 4 Tablespoons of Baking Soda
- 1 Cup of HOT Water
Aside from the fresh-smelling boost that the Unstoppables will provide, the baking soda will also absorb unfavorable odors. Baking soda is also non-toxic and safe to use around your home. When you're mixing your ingredients, be sure to use very hot water, as it will speed up the dissolving process.
