Homemade Lavender Linen Spray To Freshen Up Fabrics

4 Materials
5 Minutes

Linen spray is perfect for adding a scent boost to your bed sheets or even freshening up your linen closet. This is so easy to make and can be customized with any fragrance that you want.
Gather your ingredients and materials.

You'll need a glass spray bottle, 1 ounce of witch hazel (or vodka), 10 drops of essential oil of your choice and 3 ounces of distilled water.
Add one ounce of witch hazel to three ounces of distilled water. Distilled water is better than normal water since it won't leave any residue when you spray it and won't develop any fungus. If you don't have witch hazel, you can use vodka instead.
Add ten drops of essential oil of your choice. We used lavender for a relaxing, floral aroma that's great spritzed on bed sheets and pillows just before bedtime.
Pour the liquid mixture into your glass spray bottle and spritz!

This spray is great for spritzing on your bed sheets and pillows and items that can't be run through the washer like sofas, rugs and stuffed toys.

    Would the essential oil ‘stain’ or leave oil residue on fabrics?

    Hi😊 Great idea! I was wondering if you could use Rubbing Alcohol instead of Witch Hazel or Vodka?

      Rubbing alcohol is a bit strong smelling but you could use isopropyl alcohol
