Linen Water Makes Ironing a Little Less Boring
Ironing is a chore. Try adding some scented linen water with essential oils into your ironing regiment to break the monotony and add your favorite fragrance to your clothes or bedding. You can buy pre-made linen water at the store, but why not make your own?
- 1/8 cup of high proof vodka. Any brand will do. The vodka serves as an emulsifier for the oils as well as a preservative.
- About 100 drops of essential oil. Lavender is the most popular scent but you can use any fragrance of essential oil you’d like.
- 2-1/2 cups of distilled water.
Pour the vodka and essential oil in a large spray bottle. Shake to combine. Add the distilled water. The mixture may become cloudy over time, this is normal. Shake before each use. Spray your linen water on your clothes while ironing. Your freshly ironed clothes will smell great and you’ll feel like you went that extra little step to make something special 🙂
