Instead of Fabreze (fabric freshener) I dilute washing machine fabric conditioner with water in a plant spray bottle. I spray my curtains to freshen a room.
I also use it when I am ironing to freshen my ironing and make ironing easier.
This way I do not need to use fabric conditioner when washing clothes and they stay whiter longer because of it.

Instead of spending money on liquid fabric softener, I use hair conditioner--the cheaper the better! Combine about 1 cup of conditioner with 1 gallon of hot (NOT BOILING) water. Stir until conditioner has all dissolved. Before using, just lightly swirl container. Add +/- conditioner, according to how hard your water is. I've been doing this for years.
I keep a gallon milk jug and top, to use. Put the conditioner in, add hot water from the tap, cover and shake.
