Update on Febreeze Type Recipe

Thank you Tammy for the great link. I thought that I would share two of the recipes that I found.

first recipe:

2 cups water (warm)

 1/4 cup fabric softner ( can break down fire retardent on fabric)

1 tbs. baking soda

shake well

second recipe:

1 cup vinegar

1 cup water

1/2 tsp vegetable glycerine

1/2 tsp essential oil of your choice

shake well

I will try the second recipe it seems safer and healthier for the home. I don't know what the cost difference will be. I'm sure the home made one will be less :) Let me know if any of you try one of these recipes.

( never reuse a bottle that has any kind of chemical in it.)




  1. I can't remember exactly where, but somewhere on the internet I found the recipe that you just mix 1 part downy and 5 parts water. Put it in a clean spray bottle & spritz whenever needed. I've done this now for years & it works great. I also have used it when ironing & the clothes smell great!

  2. Sarah,

    I have a recipe I use for homemade "Frebreze," but I use a small amount of grain alcohol in it to make essential oils soluble in water without adding the scent of alcohol. If you are interested in the recipe, please email me.
