This stuff is expensive to buy, I had to search to find a replacement. Either works great. I prefer the fabric softener solution (I never have vodka in the house)


  1. Mix and Spray. The Fabric Softener solution smells great, but you have to put up with the baking soda clogging.
  2. The Vodka solution, gets rid of odors wonderfully.

This also clogged up my sprayer. Guess I'll use it up in the washing machine to soften my clothes. I found another recipe on this site - uses 2 to 4 Tablespoons Downy and water (no baking soda). Sprays great -not sure yet how well it will get rid of odors.

I gave this 1 star. Sorry but I tried the baking soda mixture and it did clogg and never came unclogged. I tried rinsing in water and tried spraying and nothing. After I sprayed my couch I had baking soda spray marks on it. I'm disappointed I'm having a party tomorrow. I have try to vacuum it off. I will try this in my shampooer to help the carpet smell good as I think it will vacuum right up the baking soda. I don't think I'd use the vodka to odd for me. This does smell good anyway my couch smells good. Thanks anyway christine (internetnut)
