Hi!! I just found your site from Pinterest when I was searching for a DIY Febreeze recipe. I also took a moment to look around on your site & realized I’m going to need more than a moment. You have SO many awesome How-tos, DIYs, Hacks & who knows what other treasures will be found.
But I have a couple of quick question concerning the DIY Febreeze recipe. How much Baking Soda is used & how many ounces of water? You gave two different amounts for the Baking Soda, 1/2 Tbsp & 1/2 cup. The video tutorial wasn’t much clearer. And I didn’t see an amount of water anywhere.
Again, I LOVE your site & will definitely be referring people here!!

I made this, and my bottle is full of little crystallized bits among the liquid and now won’t spray. Any hints/tips?
Hi I did this without reading your article but only used the downey unstoppables and hot water I did use a funnel lol seemed like thw easiest way to get the little buggers into a bottle top. I mixed everything in a clear water bottle with almost scalding hot water. Waited until I could touch bottler shook it like crazy and dumped it all into the original bottle. Why does it need the baking soda. I’m not being argumentative, just curious.
Baking soda neutralizes odors I woukd imagine that’s its purpose here.
I’m curious like Beverly. Why do you need the baking soda? I am wondering if after it sits and you spray it on something if the Soda will leave a white powdery residue.
Baking soda is an odor absorbent. If Sprayed a lot in one area up close I’m sure it would eventually leave a white residue. But I use baking soda in almost all my diy odor items.. ie. foot powder, in my fridge, and in my febreeze spray bottle… I even sprinkle in my sink to help with odors.
This smells amazing in my little apartment. Only difference is I changed my scent to the Spring scent (pink bottle) Thank you so much for this DIY idea ❤
Thanks! I funneled the unstoppables into my spray bottle filled with warm water and then let it sit overnight
then shake it the next day to mix well…I really don’t see the need for baking soda here. Works Great!
I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR OVER A YEAR…BUT WITH GAIN FIREWORKS & WATER…I DON’T USE BAKING SODA BUT IT WORKS WONDERS…EVEN IF I USE FABIC SOFTENER LIQUID & WATER…I DON’T REALLY MEASURE BUT I USE A SMALL BOTTLE & A HANDFUL OF THE FIREWORKS THINGIES…ADD WATER & SHAKE…THANK YOU FOR SHARING
Hi! So I see this uses baking soda and blue unstoppables. Does this leave a residue and turn lighter fabrics and rugs blue?
love it. I’ll be trying it soon. Thank you
