1- Scent your laundry using
– Orange blossoms
Pour some orange blossoms water in your washing machine to let your clothes soak up the fresh and soothing smell of orange blossoms.
You don’t have to use a lot of scented water, you only need 10ml of orange flower water that you will pour in the softener compartment of your washing machine.
– Essential oils
When it comes to scenting linens, always go for essential oils. Pour 10 drops of the essential oil of your choosing in the softener compartment of your washing machine, to give your laundry that special perfume you love.
You can choose to use oils for their soothing and calming effects, like lavender, chamomile or marjolaine. This tip works best with towels and sheets.
Disclaimer : Essential oils should be avoided if you have children under 3 years old, or if you are a happy expecting mom. (grab free pregnancy supplements)
2- Scent your clothes while ironing
In a similar way, you can use orange blossoms and essential oils to scent your laundry while ironing. You only have to add 1 tablespoon of orange blossoms water to your ironing water to instantly feel the fresh smell of orange flowers.
If you prefer using essential oils, pour 5 drops in your iron, and enjoy perfectly scented clothing.
