Homemade Febreze

Homemade Febreze

This morning I began my day by spraying my curtains with some of my homemade Febreze, Faux-breze if you prefer, and opened all my windows.  As the breeze gently drifted in, so did the sweet smell of my DIY Febreze.  Seriously… SO GOOD!

I have been making this delicious smelling concoction for over a year now and just can’t get enough of it!  I spray it everywhere.  Carpets, curtains, dog bed, pillows, mattress… anywhere that needs some freshening up.  It’s a lifesaver before company comes or any of those parties I’m known for throwing.  Nothing is more welcoming than a sweet smelling house! 😉

I used to buy Febreze, okay, who am I kidding… I bought it maybe twice.  I love the stuff but for almost 5 bucks a pop, I just can’t do it.  Not when I can make my own for mere cents! That’s right, CENTS!!   I’m not cheap, but I AM smart!!!  And to be honest, the homemade Febreze smells just as good as the real deal.  The scent might even last a little longer!

Don’t believe me?  Try it ONCE and you’ll be hooked!
