One of the very first cleaning products we switched out for a more natural option was our bottle of Febreeze.
Ugh. So many chemicals, and such an unnatural scent.
My homemade version is easy, pleasant-smelling, cheap, and it works wonderfully!
Sometimes I get a little carried away with my squirting...I spray the bed, the couches, the towels hanging on all the towel racks, the clothes in the closet, the car seat, the air in all the rooms...
See if you can hold yourself back from a misting addiction when you whip up your own batch of this stuff:
What You Need
1 Tablespoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon white vinegar (it works pretty well if you don't include the vinegar, too)
2 cups distilled water (use this so you don't grow disgusting mold in your bottle!)
drops (around 10) of your favorite essential oil (use one scent or a combination - this is our favorite)
an empty spray bottle (we honestly pick up great ones at our local $ store, but these look great, too)
What You Do
1. Dump everything into your spray bottle.
2. Shake really well before each use.
3. Start spritzing!
See, I told you it was easy! Now go forth and eliminate your household's odors with spray bottle in hand!
