Do you ever feel like your couches seem to smell a little stale? Or the dog bed still has an odor even after it’s vacuumed? Maybe you just like the smell of clean bedding and it’s already worn off since the last wash.
Those are just the jobs for this all-natural fabric refresh spray. It brings the life back into fabrics that you can’t throw in the wash, or some that just need a little extra smell-good.
I use this often on my couch cushions, couch pillows, and throws. I even spray it on my carpets every once in a while to give the whole room a fresh scent.
You’ll love how easy this is to make (only three ingredients!) and how you can customize the scent for any job or occasion.
My recipe is for a 4 oz bottle (not very much!) but if you just use one part which hazel to one part distilled water, you can make any amount you want. And feel free to change up the amount of essential oils to your preference, or even try different oils or blends.
** Find recipe card at the end of the post **
You Will Need:
¼ cup Witch Hazel (high proof vodka would also work)
¼ cup Distilled Water*
40 drops Essential Oils of choice (I used Lavender)
Glass Spray Bottle (similar bottle in 16 oz size)
*Always use distilled water when you can in DIY projects, tap water can contain substances that can cause bacteria to grow. Boiled water is ok if you plan to use it up right away, but distilled is preferred.
1. Add all the ingredients together, pour into bottle.
2. Gently shake to combine.
3. Shake before each use.
You can substitute the witch hazel for high-proof vodka, I just found that witch hazel was cheaper (and I didn’t have any vodka sitting around). Just make sure if you use witch hazel, that you get one that’s alcohol based. This is what helps the fabric spray dry quickly.
Gently shake before each use, the essential oils have a tendency to sit on top, so you’ll want to combine them before spraying. Make sure your spray bottle is set to a mist setting, and always test a small area before you spray too much, you can never be too careful.
Let me know how yours turns out!
