If your home doesn’t smell as amazing as you would like, the common solution is to go out and buy air fresheners like AirWick or Febreze. While these solutions do help, they aren’t foolproof nor are they cost-efficient. Replacing your AirWick every single time can add up.
Instead, try this very easy and simple DIY solution. You can create your own scented spray at home to eliminate the unwanted, nasty odors in your home.
This DIY spray can smells similar to Febreze, but it doesn’t contain any fabric softener. This recipe also involves Downy Unstoppables, which come in a wide variety of scents. You can choose the one you like the best!
To start, you just need a few ingredients.
1/4 cup of Downy Unstoppables in your preferred scent
4 teaspoons of baking soda
1 cup boiling water
14-oz spray bottle
First, combine your 1/4 cup of Downy Unstopabbles with baking soda in a bowl. Then pour your boiling water over the mixture. Stir it together gently, and let it sit for 30 minutes. The beads should dissolve completely.
Next, transfer the mixture into your spray bottle. Use a funnel to make this process more efficient and easier.
Now you can apply this mixture to any surface and make your house smell amazing. Easy, right?
