Making your own Febreeze is easy to do. You need baking soda, hot water, a plastic spray bottle and your favorite essential oil. The process should only take a few minutes.
Pour baking soda into a plastic spray bottle
Carefully pour 1 cup of baking soda into an empty plastic spray bottle. You can use a piece of paper to create a funnel to assist with this step. The bottle you use should have the capability of holding 20 to 24 ounces of liquid when filled to the top.
Add hot water to the plastic spray bottle
Slowly add 20 to 24 ounces of hot water to the plastic bottle with the baking soda in it. It's important to use hot water to ensure that the baking soda properly dissolves. Stop periodically throughout the fill-up to shake the solution vigorously. This also helps ensure the baking soda dissolve.
Add essential oil
Use a dropper to add 8 to 10 small drops of essential oil to give your homemade Febreeze the scent you desire. Once again, shake the solution vigorously. Add more essential oil if necessary. It's important to remember to shake the bottle before each use for the best effects.
