If you need to freshen an article of clothing, a blanket or pillow, this DIY Laundry Freshening Spray will quickly replace that fabric spray you’ve been using and become a new favorite. The essential oils add a subtle scent and the vodka helps to kill bacteria which is where the odor comes from.

The chemicals and artificial fragrance in traditional fabric sprays are toxic and when you see how easy and inexpensive this spray is to mix up, you’ll be DIY’ing your fabric spray too.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vodka (or rubbing alcohol)
  • 5 drops essential oil (I love the Calm Home Blend for clothing – it’s Lavender and Eucalyptus)
  • spray bottle

Add ingredients to a spray bottle and shake to combine. (I recommend using glass spray bottles),

If I have a shirt or piece of clothing that needs a little freshening up – maybe if it isn’t quite ready to be washed but needs a little extra something. I hang a couple shirts in the laundry room, give them a quick spritz and allow to dry.
