Happy Valentines day all! Isn’t is a beautiful day with love in the air? My husband got 2 more solar panels so guess where he was? In the backyard making them work. So I have been working in the kitchen to make a little thing called fake Fabreeze. I got the idea and most of the recipe off of Pinterest. For some reason I can’t seem to add their web address onto my blog’s home page, but this thing is AWESOME!!!!
The web address of the actual recipe is http://fakeitfrugal.blogspot.com/2011/07/fake-febreeze.html. Now I followed her advice except I made this with homemade fabric softener. I also had to use just a little more fabric softener.
There are many ideas out there for air freshener. Most use rubbing alcohol or vodka. These work fine I am sure, but I would prefer to drink my vodka or make vanilla or orange oil than make air freshener. I have attempted the rubbing alcohol air fresheners and I just end up with headaches.
This is why I got so excited to make this. No head aches and there are so many better uses for my vodka.
This just takes fabric softener and baking soda. Water too.
Each time I find these recipes I have to work them until they work for me. I suggest you do the same. Every recipe needs your finger print, That being said, I used home made fabric softener, but you don’t have to. You can use any kind of fabric softener that you choose. The only thing that this will do is change the scent and cost more.
It works better to me. The smell is not as strong and after the smell disappears the air is fresh and clean. It is nearly as nice as opening the windows. I spray my bedding and living room furniture. This stuff has to work as I have 2 dogs and a cat.
