Room and clothing fresheners and dewrinklers are great. They can help cut down on your dry cleaning bills, eliminate overwashing of clothes and neutralize pet odors. But the idea of spraying chemicals on our stuff? Not so much. Why not make one yourself?

We found this recipe on Thrifty Fun. Remember to test on fabric before using.


  • 2 Tablespoons of white vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons of fabric softener (use a natural/organic softener)
  • 6 to 10 drops of your favorite essential/scented oil or try vanilla or almond extract
  • Pour into a 16 ounce fine mist sprayer. Fill the remainder with distilled water.

Shake and spray.
