http://www.muchmorethanamom.com/2006/09/22/alternative-to-febreze/ From the website: In our home we try to avoid the potentially carcinogenic chemicals in Febreeze and all sorts of commercial cleaning/household products. Our 'safe' version of Febreeze is as follows: Mix in a spray bottle (lavender vanilla scent): 1 Cup water
2 Tbsp. baking soda (natural odour remover)
2 Tbsp. vodka (for the quick drying properties)
5-10 drops tea tree oil (natural antibacterial) .
5-10 drops lavender essential oil (Use your favorite scent)
1 tsp. pure vanilla (Use your favorite scent) Adjust drops of oil for a stronger or weaker scent - I suggest reading safety guidelines for each oil on their bottles. Shake well each time prior to spraying to ensure ingredients are mixed. For use on most fabrics, I use 10-20 drops in 1 cup of water. For use as an air freshener, I use 20-40 drops in 1 cup of water. This one is, obviously, the lavender vanilla scent. There are many other options to suit your taste - sometimes we use mandarin essential oil, mandarin/vanilla, eucalyptus in cold season, lemon/lavender/clary sage, lemon/lime, mandarin/grapefruit, ylang ylang/rose/bergamot… the list goes on.

This one works great, I don't know if you can use regular rubbing alcohol or not. She has other cleaner's too, oven, drain and bug repellent. MORE: 1. I have also read somewhere that these are just watter, and fabric softener which has the same purpose; remove odder and soften the fabric! So if you mix some watter and a small amount of fabric softener you should get the same results. You need to try different amount to get the best result. You can also customize it; heavy or light! 2. They are basically sugars that have a hole in them, which drives out water molecules while holding 'guest' molecules in isolation. With a 'smelly' molecule encounters it, it stops interacting with the environment and *poof* no smell.

The neat thing is, when it gets surrounded by lots of water, it releases the guest molecule. This is just what you would want to happen when you wash it. Soheil E
