How To Make Your Own Fabric Freshener

How do you make homemade Febreze with essential oils?

Some call it fabric refresher, some fabric freshener, and some refer to it as the popular brand name of Febreze. Whatever you call it, you may be wondering how to make your own fabric freshener at home using natural non toxic ingredients to make your fabrics smell amazing. Read on for everything that you need to make your own fabric freshener and exactly how to do it.

Fabric Freshener In Action

In one of my recent videos, I used my own non toxic fabric freshener to spritz and freshen our made beds. Check out the video below then keep reading for everything that you will need to make your own fabric freshener.

To Make Your Own Fabric Freshener You Will Need…

Spray Bottle

Bicarbonate Of Soda / Baking Soda

Depending upon which side of the pond you are, you may call this bicarbonate of soda or baking soda. Either way, it’s the same thing. Bicarbonate of soda as amazing natural deodorising properties.

Essential Oils

When it comes to essential oils, the choice of fragrance is a personal preference. I like to use lavender as it’s a relaxing type of scent which is great for bedding, but I sometimes use lemon too.


This is possible without a funnel, but far easier and less messy with one.

How to make the fabric refresher

  • Place the funnel into the spray bottle
  • Add 1 tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda to the bottle
  • Add 10 drops of your favourite essential oil
  • Top up the bottle to 3/4 full with boiling water that has cooled a little
  • Screw the lid on tightly and shake
  • Spray and enjoy the fragrance!

Uses For Your Own Fabric Freshener

You can use your own homemade fabric freshener for so many different things including;

  • Deodorising cushions
  • Freshening tip clothes and jackets between washing or dry cleaning
  • Freshening curtains
  • Making your bedding smell amazing
  • Spraying on your welcome mat for a burst of fragrance as you enter your home
  • Freshening up stinky shoes
  • Deodorising gym bags
  • Making your car seats smell like heaven

And so many more!
