…make your own Febreze!!

(This blog is dedicated to Erin T., who gave me the idea…)

Approximately 27 oz of Febreze, by Proctor and Gamble, costs between 5 to 7 dollars, according to

Approximately 64 oz of Downy costs between 4 and 6 dollars, according to

Put aside the fact that the following recipe stretches that 64 oz into months of product, and it already makes financial sense to make your own fabric freshener.

Fill the Downy cap full of product. Pour the cap into a 32 oz spray bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with warm water. Gently shake the product before each use. The product is safe for the same types of fabrics as the Febreze brand.

I am allergic to many scents. The Febreze brand has begun to close my throat and set off a serious attack. The Downy does not affect me. My house has never smelled fresher.

Good luck, and let me know how this works for you!

    You’ll find quite a few allergenic fungi that cause allergic reactions in individuals. The Alternaria, Aspergillus, and Cephalosporium are commonly identified fungi that fall under the Fungi Imperfecti group. These, specifically the Alternaria and Caldosporium are far more prevalent outdoors than indoors. They’re widespread during the autumn season, but sometimes they appear in the spring and summer. Indoors, Aspergillus and Penicillium are comparatively persistent throughout the year with little impact from environmental factors.

    Hay fever can make the nose, roof of the mouth, back of the throat, and eyes itch. Itching could start gradually or abruptly.
