Though, it isn’t technically spring yet we’ve been having extremely warm weather. So why not start spring cleaning a tad early? Once I finish all the detail work, dusting, shaking of rugs and vacuuming, I always find myself obsessed with making everything smell fresh. Buying a surplus of Febreze and spraying every piece of fabric in the house can be expensive. Luckily, you can skip the expense and make it yourself with mostly household ingredients!
- One plastic spray bottle (think dollar store) OR an old Febreze bottle.
- Fabric softener
- Baking Soda
- Warm water
- Funnel with a wide mouth
- Using your funnel take about 1 tablespoon of baking soda and put it in your spray bottle.
- Fill the spray bottle with warm water about half way then shake vigor sly until the baking soda is dissolved completely. You don’t want a clogged spray bottle!
- Next add two tablespoons of your fabric softener. If you have a thin (common in cheaper softeners) formula you might want to add an extra tablespoon.
- Lastly fill the rest of the container with warm water and shake it light until the color is evenly distributed.
- Now go nuts and pray any non sensitive fabrics. If you’re nervous you can replace the baking soda with vinegar. Don’t worry; it dries neutrally!
