Testing Enviro-Friendly Alternatives to Febreze
Pinky -- who is a raccoon -- gets to be a guinea pig. I'm going to try a few enviro-friendly alternatives to Febreze on Pinky.
- PH12.6 -- works as a deodorizer, but not recommended for silk or leather. Pinky is neither, so we're safe there.
- I've seen a few recommendations for a 50/50 mix of water and cheap vodka, but not really sure if vodka qualifies as a green cleaner. As it turns out, we have no vodka in the house. This option will not be tested.
- I've seen some recipes that use white vinegar and water, or with a little baking soda mixed in. Some also suggest liquid fabric softener, but we don't have any in the house, so this recipe will be very experimental.
- Then there's the tiny bottle of Febreze that I bought on a whim, a few years ago, and still haven't really used very much. It's just got an overpowering, flowery/chemical smell that I just can't stand.
Pinky will be spritzed on various parts of his corpus. I will report back on the test results and whether Pinky gets de-stinkied.
