Homemade fabric refresher spray
Would you like to freshen up your garments or don’t you want to wear perfume? This homemade fabric refresher spray is here to help! This multipurpose spray will be your new favourite diy. And yes, you’re allowed to take a shot of Vodka if you like. I go for the no-hangover method and I’m happy I can finally say goodbye to the bottle that has been sitting in my kitchen for years.
Why you should make your own
Of course you can also buy fabric refresher sprays in store, however these often contain synthetic ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions. (please note Essential oils can do this to). However if you make this yourself, it will be way cheaper than the luxury fabric refresher sprays, and they smell just as good.
What you need for your homemade fabric refresher spray
• Distilled water (Or cooled, boiled water)
• Vodka (you can also use witch hazel or rubbing alcohol)
• High quality essential oils of choice
(make sure they aren’t coloured I use DoTerra oils)
• Repurposed spray bottle
At home we always keep empty spray bottles from cleaning agents or beauty products, so that we can reuse them again. They are perfect for your homemade fabric spray! Depending on the size of your bottle, you boil an appropriate amount of water. I always go for a 65% Vodka to 35% water. If you’re going for witch hazel or rubbing alcohol I would say a 50 -50 mix would work perfectly fine!
How to make your fabric refresher spray
Once this water has cooled, you can pour the mix into your bottle and add some drops of high-quality essential oils. You can use lavender or any other scent you like. The more drops, the stronger the spray. You can play around with this a bit and see what works well for you. You have to shake the bottle before use and spray! Just make sure to test the refresher on a piece of fabric to make sure it won’t stain. Investing in a good essential oil is well worth it.
How you can use your fabric refresher spray
This spray is definitely a multipurpose spray. You can use it for your garments as well as your bedlinen. But you can also use it as a room spray.
If you use a scent you love this fabric refresher spray will instantly make you happy.
