There are some things that you just aren’t going to wash very often, like your curtains, couch cushions, and probably even your favorite jeans. To spare the air, concoct a simple essential oil-infused linen spray, and spritz away until your definition of what “clean” smells like shifts permanently.DIY Natural Linen Spray


30 drops lavender, rose, or jasmine essential oil
3 oz isopropyl alcohol
1 1/2 c distilled water
spray bottle
small bowl

How To Make Natural Fabric Spritz

1. Pour alcohol into a small bowl.
2. Add essential oil and mix thoroughly. (Mixing the oil and alcohol before adding water is imperative.)
3. Add distilled water and stir.
4. Using the funnel, pour the mixture into the bottle and spray onto your sheets, curtains, clothing, and pretty much anything cloth and/or covered in cloth that could use a fragrant spritz.
