A Daily Pro Tip Alternative to Febreze

Let me be the first to say I'm a fan of Febreze, I'm pretty sure I can thank Febreze for every date I went on during my college days.



That being said, we're in a recession.  Not everyone can afford the cost of Febreze.  This Daily Pro Tip is designed to save you $7 per bottle that they charge for these basic ingrediants...

What You Need:
1/3 cup White Vinegar
1/2 cup Liquid Fabric Softener
3 cups Water
Spray Bottle

Combine all ingredients in the spray bottle and shake!

Vinegar is a great deodorizer, use more or less depending on your needs and don't worry the vinegary smell dissipates very quickly leaving nothing but the nice fabric softener scent.
