DIY Homemade Febreze

Hello Lovely,

The first time I ever used Febreze was when I checked into my dorm in college. The room clearly had mould in it so I bought the Febreze for allergies. It worked great but there was just no way that I could afford to buy it every month. While I feel there is no substitute for that specific kind of Febreze, if you're considering buying another bottle just to freshen the room, I think you should listen up and put down your wallet! Got your attention? Great!

You'll be surprised how simple and cheap it is to make your own Febreze!

What you'll need:

  • 1/8 Cup of fabric softener (I used Suavitel)
  • 2 tablespoons Baking Soda
  • Hot tap water
  • Spray bottle (I used my empty 27 oz. Febreze bottle)



Using a funnel, pour fabric softener and baking soda into your spray bottle. Fill spray bottle with hot tap water and shake well. Now go spray every fabric surface in your house and take a nap on your very comfortable and now non-stinky couch. :)


Store-bought Febreze: $5.59

Homemade Febreze: $0.15

Total Savings: $5.44 OR  97.3%!
