Since finding out that manufacturers do not have to disclose the ingredients in their cleaning products, I decided to make my own. The first DIY household cleaner I wanted to make is the fabric refresher A.K.A. Febreze. I loved how instant Febreze could get rid of bad smells but I didn’t wanted to inhale all the chemicals in it. So I researched all-natural ingredients and tried out several recipes before finishing up my own recipe. I’m so happy with the results. Below please find my recipe for an anti-microbial, antibacterial, odor masking DIY Febreze:
Marifer’s DIY Febreze Fabric Spray
// Ingredients \\
1 x 32oz Spray Bottle (Target or Dollar Store)
White Vinegar/Cleaning Vinegar (deodorizer)
20-30 drops of Lavender Essential Oil (any other oil will do) (scent)
* I don’t use alcohol like other recipes because alcohol can make fabric flammable. Yikes!!!!
// What you do \\
- Use a measuring cup and start by adding 1 cup of water to the spray bottle
- Add 1 cup of white vinegar
- Add 20-30 drops of your favorite essential oil. You can add more if you’d like
- Shake it before use
// How to Use \\
Spray Marifer’s DIY Febreze all over the furniture and that’s it. The vinegar smell will evaporate after a few seconds leaving just the essential oil smell.
Now for about $0.15 per unit, you have a toxic-free, biodegradable, anti-bacterial and deodorizing fabric spray!!!!
