I don't know what other clothing refreshers or air fresheners might have similar ingredients.
Does anyone know how accurate the following is?
There are certain ingredients included in the Febreze formula that are known to be cancer causing as well. Acetaldehyde, 1.3-Dichloro-2-propanol, propylene glycol, and other unnatural sounding components in Febreze have links to cancer.
- All Natural Air Freshener
The best method is always the natural method. There is no need to buy products laden with harmful ingredients when you can make a healthy alternative at home, with just a handful of ingredients.
These are the things you’ll need to create your own air freshener:
1 tbsp of baking soda
2 cups of distilled water
10 drops of essential oil (you can pick whichever scent you want, or try mixing your favorites)
Clean spray bottle
Mix the baking soda and essential oil in a bowl with a fork to keep the oil suspended in the water. Pour the mixture into the spray bottle (a funnel works wonders) and top off with the distilled water. Shake before every use and enjoy clean, fresh air at home.
Don’t bring home chemical-heavy air fresheners ever again. Keep yourself, your loved ones, and your home happy, healthy, and lively.
