    Loves2Teach's Note:

    A wonderful dirt cheap alternative to buying a $5 bottle of Febreze. This version is about 5 cents to make and the scent is much nicer too. I use it all the time.

      I've been using this for about a week. My couch smells good, but I wanted a little stronger smell, so I put in about 4 tablespoons of Downy in a 32 ounce spray bottle. My house smells fantastic and the cost is outstanding compared to Febreeze. I just used this on white pillowcases, and it didn't stain. And the price can't be beat! I'll be using this from now on instead of expensive Febreeze. Thanks, B!

      This is right on the money! Pun intended. Make sure to use a spray bottle with a mist setting or your furniture will take forever to dry. This is great! Thanks so much!

      I loved this! Not only does it work great, I feel so economical & "house-ly" knowing that I made it. Edited to say I used 4 tbs per Denise's suggestion.
