Homemade Linen Spray

I recently came across a wonderful recipe for a homemade linen spray in a book that has been sitting quietly on my bookshelf for ages.  The book is called Green Clean and it contains some very quick and easy,  DIY, cleaning products for around the home.

The linen spray is simple to prepare and very easy to customize to your personal "scent" preference.  Spritz a bit onto your sheets and towels when folding them off the clothesline.  Spray onto clothes, teatowels and tablecloths before ironing.  Or, simply spray into the air and use it as a room spray.

  • 2 tablespoons of 100% proof vodka (or isopropyl)
  • Rainwater or distilled water
  • Your choice of essential oil  -  jasmine, bergamot, lavender, lemon myrtle 
  • 500 ml spray bottle
  •  Mix the 2 tablespoons of vodka with the oils of your choice.  Some suggestions are :   
  •       1 teaspoon jasmine + 1/2 teaspoon bergamot 
  •       1 teaspoon lavender + 1/2 teaspoon sandalwood    
  •       2 teaspoons lemon mrytle
  • Then add the rainwater until the spray bottle is almost full
  • Screw on the cap and shake the bottle to disperse the oils evenly throughout
  • Shake lightly before each use
See..... so quick and easy to do and it makes all your linen smell divine
