|Lady, our big stinky dog|
When I came across this awesome idea to Make Your Own Febreeze over Fake-It Frugal, who found it at Homemade Mamas, and I just had to it out. I used an old Zout spray bottle and found it worked just as well. Here is how Heather at Fake-It Frugal did it.
I changed their recipe up a bit to Refill my already existing 32 oz Febreeze Spray Bottle:
1/8 Cup of Your Favorite Fabric Softener
2 Tablespoons Baking Soda
Hot Tap Water - To Fill the Bottle to the Top
Shake it up in your Spray Bottle and you're ready to go and fight those Stinky Dog Odors!
I found that Fake Febreeze actually has a bit more "staying power" than regular Febreeze, too!
Fake-It Yourself Breakdown:
Fake Febreeze ($0.15 or less for 1 oz Fabric Softener)
Total Fake-It Cost: $0.15 Each
Compare to Actual Febreeze ($5.59 Each, seriously?)
Total Fake-It Savings: $5.44 Each*
*Let's say you purchase 1 Bottle of Febreeze per month, that's a Savings of $65.28 per year!
