Money Saving Tip: Homemade Fabric Refresher Spray (better than Febreze!)

I have never liked the smell of those fabric refresher sprays, they smelled chemical-y, “forced” or just overpowering.

After Bug was born, my Dad gifted me the services of his cleaning lady for a couple months ( and every time she left my house, it smelled amazing.  Not just clean, but AMAZING.  Like clean, sun dried laundry, a meadow of wildflowers and fluffy clouds.  Seriously.

Spray it on your couch, rugs, carpet, curtains.  And enjoy the best smelling house you’ve ever had!
