DIY Fabric Freshener

Goooood Morning!!

Don't you LoVe the smell of fresh clean linens?? I do! I do! In the past have spent a fortune on fabric fresheners like GrabGreen, Lysol, Febreze, Mrs. Meyers, etc.

I saw a few recipes for making your own and decided to make a blend a'la ME!

I re-use my Febreze bottle but any spray bottle will do!

Recipe for 25-32 oz spray bottle
2 TBS Baking Soda
1/8 C Your Fave Fabric Softener (mine is Downy Clean Breeze)
2 drops of Tea Tree Oil [helps kill dust mites!]
Then fill your spray bottle with hot tap water


{I've also used Downy Lavender Serenity in a separate bottle for nighttime!!}

Happy {Almost} Friday!

1. $Money$ cannot buy happiness but it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.
2. Forgive your enemy but remember the bastard's name.
3. Help someone when they are in trouble and they will remember YOU when they're in trouble {again}.
4. Certain people are alive ONLY because it's illegal to shoot them.
5. Alcohol does not solve any problems, but then again, neither does milk.
Happy {almost} Friday of Labor Day weekend for us means FOOOURRR DAYS and if I look off in the horizon I can see it just up ahead!!!!! 
And at some point during this weekend please take time to think of or say thank you to the men and women in the military for their service and sacrifices they make throughout the year. Remember our Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines deployed around the world on Labor Day.
We should be so very proud of the hard-working global team and their families every day.
