This is another of those “good things” I’ve been meaning to try for….forever!  I was reminded I hadn’t done so the other day when someone emailed me asking about it…again! I figured it must be time!

So I went into my vast collection of bookmarks and pulled up some recipes I had found online that looked promising. Problem was….I couldn’t decide which one to try. So I picked 3 and tried them all! :-)

Today was actually the ideal day to do this….because the boys inexplicably decided it was “room makeover” day. While they were rearranging and getting rid of old stuff…I decided a little fabric refresher definitely couldn’t hurt!  If you have boys….you know of what I speak. :-)

But before I went spraying all over their rooms…I decided we better do a “smell test” to see which of the three I made was the preferred potion.

I sprayed each of these throw pillows with a different concoction, let them air dry for a few minutes…then had them give each pillow a good SNIFF.

 

The results???

Recipe #1 was the hands down winner.

Mainly because it was the only one of the 3 that actually had a “smell” to it. The other two just smelled neutral. Which, depending on what you’re looking for in a “fabric refresher”, might be preferable. My boys, however, take after their mama and liked the nice-smelling one. :-)

So there you have it, our completely UNscientific test results. Take it, or leave it.  Here are the three “recipes” I used so you can conduct your OWN unscientific research. :-)

 

Recipe #1:

Adapted from Northern Cheapskate

1/2 cup white distilled vinegar
1/2 cup distilled water
1/4 cup liquid fabric softener (Homemade or store-bought…your choice)

Pour each of the ingredients into spray bottle and give it a shake.

 

Recipe #2:

(for those who don’t wish to use commercial fabric softener)

Adapted from Cooke’s Frontier

1 cup rubbing alcohol
1 cup white distilled vinegar
10-20 drops of your choice essential oil (I used Lavender)

You can also replace the rubbing alcohol with cheap vodka and it works just as well.

 

Recipe #3:

(another “natural” version)

Adapted from The Cents’able Shoppin

1 cup  distilled water
1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
1 tablespoon rubbing alcohol
1/2 tablespoon baking soda
8-10 drops essential oil (I used Lavender….again)

Put ingredients in spray bottle and shake it up.

 

Now you are armed and ready to

go forth and REFRESH!!
