Frugal Friday - Make Your Own Air and Fabric Refresher!

My frugal idea/tip this week is to make your own air and fabric refresher (like Febreze and Glade). I love for my house, bed coverings, furniture, car, son#1 shoes...well, everything to smell good. With the cost of everything going up, I decided to give making my own a try. So far, it seems to work great!

Here's how I did it...
Add 5 tablespoons of liquid fabric softner to a spray bottle then fill the bottle up with water.

This time around I used one of the Snuggle samples that I had received in the mail. If you received those and still have them, you could use them as well. I used the whole bottle then filled the spray bottle up with water to the 750ML mark (pretty much to the top). If you don't have a spray bottle to use, you can do as I did and pick one up at the Dollar Store!

I have the same spray bottle from the dollar store and I am all about making my own cleaners. I will have to give this a try. Great idea.

OK, this is an awesome tip! I am sooo gonna do this. I even have one of those bottles I bought at the Dollar Tree a while ago and my snuggle sample. I'm excited!!
