Popular fragrance oils are not just for burning. Here are two ways oils can keep drawers and clothes fresh.
My favorite way to use fragrance oils is to make homemade dryer sheets. The oils are more natural than toxic dryer sheets and they do not contain alcohol, fillers or chemical ingredients.
Homemade Dryer Sheet
Whenever I do laundry, I dab a bit (3-5 drops) of fragrance oil onto a handkerchief and place it into the dryer with my clothes. Not only do my clothes get laced with the fragrance as they dry, but the oil also controls static cling. The handkerchief can be re-used as is or washed to clear the scent so that a new one can be applied.
Homemade Drawer Sachets
Another way, I use fragrance oils
is to make scented drawer sachets. Most of the time, I use a handkerchief but you can cut a square out of an old shirt. Just mix a drop of oil with 1/8 cup of baking soda and put it onto the cloth
. Fold the cloth and fasten it with a string or rubber band. Then, pop it in a drawer with your clothes or hang it in the closet. This will keep your drawers (and closets) smelling fresh and prevent moths, too.
Kush, with its soothing smell of woods, spices, and musk, is one of my favorite drawer sheet fragrances. Try one of these or other fragrance oil
hacks this summer. Any of your favorite fragrances will work nicely for dryer sheets or drawer sachets.
You can even combine oils to create your own new fragrance! So go ahead, check out LACS selection of fragrance oils
