    this recipe works just as good as the way over priced febreze.....it also takes the static out of the house. we were always getting shocked from our house being so dry. this spray has solved that problem

    What is the baking soda for?. I've made something similar, just without baking soda.

    I really loved this, but It seems that when I used the gain fabric softener it would separate and then my bottle would leak and crystalize on the nozzle. I loved how it smelled and how easy it was to make, just had to keep it on the counter and watch for leaking.

    Don't know why but the baking soda and fabric softener don't stay mixed and when I use it the baking soda leaves a film.

    You have to boil the water and mix them, you can't use cold water or it will leave a residue.

    Maybe the baking soda is not being dissolved properly for those having crystallization issues. Also hard water maybe to blame.

    Made this today & completely dissolved the baking soda over the stove in boiling water. I now have a white residue EVERYWHERE. Carpeting, rugs, furniture, etc. White residue on grey carpeting is horrible. Not happy with this MYO at all

    Just out of sheer curiousity but why would you spray this EVERYWHERE (as you mentioned) without first Testing it in a small area if you've never used it before?

    Did the MYO Febreeze without baking soda work for you? I do have hard water here.... and am kind of leery about trying it after reading other posts. Thanks for any input!

    Would making distilled water work for those who have a hard water problem? My parents house had its own well water, and it was very hard water, and when Mom needed to use water for something, she use to boil some and let it cool, then use it with no trouble with the minerals in it. Just a thought.
