I have had a problem with the clean linens in my closet smelling, well not so fresh when it comes time to use them. What can be more annoying. I mean, I went through all the trouble of washing all of those sheets an towels, folded them, and tucked them neatly away in the linen closet. When it comes time to use them, the smell stale! What is that about? Does this ever happen to you? Please tell me I’m not alone.
It’s no secret that I am a sucker for all things homemade. I am also really into things being really simple. The less ingredients, the better. Well, I’ve tried to combat said issue with putting Seventh Generation All Natural Dryer Sheets between my linens while tucked away in the closet. That helps, but hasn’t solved my problem completely. So, I decided to make some homemade linen spray. After I put the sheets on the bed, I spray them down…heavily. It seems to really help freshen things up. While they are still a bit stale right out of the closet, I think I’ve found a solution that I can live with.
Homemade Lavender Linen Spray
3 oz. spray bottle
1 oz. Rubbing Alcohol
3 oz. Distilled Water
15 drops of Lavender oil
Simply combine the ingredients and shake well. You can print this cute little label I made and stick it to your bottle. I used the printable address labels, found the template in MS Word, and inserted my image. Simple and easy, just how I like it!!! -Ruth-
