Lavender Linen Spray DIY

Homemade Lavender Linen Spray from Isn't that Sew
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-

I definitely have the same problem. It doesn't help to live in an ancient house that's perpetually damp! I should make some. I love lavender!

Ok. Glad I'm not the only one. Believe it or not, we don't have much mold in Texas!!! It's seems strange to me coming from Chicago, where everything is moldy!

Thanks Em! Yes, and I usually spray my pillow before bed. I think Lavender might help you sleep...

Getting your dog spayed is a great idea if a) you're not planning on breeding her, b) you don't know how old she is, and c) want save yourself from what could be an emergency situation/fee). Older intact females who are not bred after their heat can get a "pyometra"(pie-o-me-tra). Simple terms: infected uterus. These can be "open"(where infection drains out very slowly) or "closed"(where the infection stays in the uterus and can rupture internally). Both types are dangerous and usually need emergency surgical procedures that can range in price depending on the veterinary clinic (but are usually around $1, 200-$1, 500). Spays are much cheaper and safer because your pet is healthy at the time of spay versus sick from infection during a pyometra. Ask your vet for more pros and cons of spaying.

I love linen spray and have been using it for years for my ironing. Most of the time I make it myself, but will buy the odd bottle if priced right at TJ Maxx. I have to make large quantities as I literally will spend a whole day ironing (I can get through an entire season of "Downton Abbey") Thank you for the label. I'll be using it on my not-so-pretty bottle.
