Home made Fabreeze Recipe

As soon as I run out of Fabreeze (should be any day now) I am going to whip up a batch of this and try it out. Sounds so simple and cheap.

Home Made Fabreeze Recipe:

  • 1/4 cup fabric softener
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp baking soda

Mix up and spritz. I will let you know how it turns out!
UPDATE: I made up a batch tonight using a free snuggle sample that came in the mail. I didn’t bother with adding baking soda, just dumped the 1/4 cup sample of snuggle in the bottle and topped it off with water. Sprayed the garbage cans and the chair the dog has taken to sleeping in. Wow does it work great. It has a great fresh smell that lasts just as long as the real fabreeze. Plus if you order a free sample all it costs you is a minute of your time and some water.

Mmmm…. Smells like fresh laundry!

    Very good idea and a lot less expensive. Thanks.

    Interesting idea. And there was no spotting on the fabric?

    No, we have used it all over the place, and no spotting. The sprayer we use makes a fine mist, so this may help prevent any spotting. We have used several more free samples (Downy, Snuggle, etc.) to make more homemade febreze since this post! We love it!

    My mom does this to cut back on static in the winter. No more shocking everyone all winter long!


    It does smell quite nice. As long as you dilute it adequately it doesnt stain.
