Do you remember watching the first few ads for air freshener spray like Febreze? I remember seeing them and think that it’ll never catch on and it certainly wasn’t something I would ever use. Boy was I wrong. I bought my first bottle a few months after we got our cat to get rid of some odors and I’ve gotta tell you, they work. I’ve been using them for a couple of years now. And as much as I’m all for making your own homemade convenience foods, it honestly never occurred to me to make a DIY air freshener or fabric refresher.
I came across a video a few weeks ago on YouTube that showed how to make your own homemade version. I’m sharing it below. I figured I’d give it a try and see if it worked. I had the baking soda and some lavender essential oil. The only thing I was missing was a spray bottle. Thankfully my dollar store always has some around. I grabbed two for a dollar and got to work.
Here’s the Homemade Air Freshener Recipe:
