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…
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.
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!
