Vinegar Instead Of Febreze

This Sparked Me!

In a spray bottle-Mix 2 parts white vinegar with 1 part water. Add 4-5 drops of your favorite essential oil.
Believe it or not a light mist of this mix gets rid of odors. Yes at first the vinegar will be strong but soon it disappears leaving only the scent of the oil. Its great on glass, toilet, tile floors. You can lightly mist your rugs and allow to dry. It gets rid of my dogs "doggy" smell.
It also gets rid of spiders.
You can pour some in your laundry instead of fabric softner. Works great

And yes, Hopefill, vinegar is an insect repellent.
