Along with all the fun…

Amongst all the fun of decorating, wrapping, and baking that goes with the season, there is that other job on your to-do list that always must be done… Clean the house before friends and family arrive! While cleaning up today, I ran out of my favorite cheat in between deep cleans for carpet and upholstery, Febreeze. Having a large dog the house can sometime get a little “doggie” smelling and it needs a little touch up that Febreeze does a great job with. So, in my efforts to not have to pay $5 for a bottle of spray, I remembered that I had pinned a recipe for homemade Febreeze!

It was really easy to make, all you need is the following;
1/4 cup liquid fabric softener
2 tablespoons baking soda
Hot water
Empty spray bottle (I used my empty Febreeze bottle but any will work)
Funnel (to make life a little easier)

First dissolve the baking soda in a cup of hot water. Use the funnel to pour water baking soda mixture into your spray bottle. Next pour into your spray bottle the fabric softener. Fill the remaining space of your spray bottle with water. Put the top on, and shake it a little bit, then off you go to freshen up your home!

You can play with the scents of fabric softener that you use, and add a little more or less depending on how strong you want your spray. Enjoy!
