DIY Febreeze. An empty spray bottle, 1 1/2 cups water, 1 tablespoon baking soda, 1 to 2 tablespoons of fabric softener. Some say to just fill up the bottle, but I used filled an old Febreeze bottle like pictured, which apparently meant too much water because it wasn't as effective as I was wanting. Added more fabric softener and a little more baking soda and it's just like Febreeze.
I went to Walmart and picked out my favorite scent of liquid fabric softener. I took out an empty spray bottle I had stashed away. Mix up just over 1/8 cup of the fabric softner with 2 tablespoons of baking soda and fill the rest of the bottle with tap water.
This BrownThumbMama.com post lists some of the ingredients the commercial product contains - trust me, we do not want to be inhaling any of it. Homemade treatment for smelly upholstery, etc. to the rescue ...
