You know that smell when you walk into someone’s house and you can immediately tell they just recently cleaned? LEMONS!! It’s always lemons! There’s nothing worse than walking into someone’s home and smelling literally everything that’s happened there that week…gross!
I used to use Febreze but it seems like even the tiniest little spritz is SUPER strong and just mixes with the smell of whatever you’re trying to cover up, simply creating a whole new nasty smell! Plus when you have a 6 year old that literally drenches the house in it, because it’s obviously so fun to spray…… the stench quickly looses it’s appeal.
I instead use this DIY Essential Oil Linen Spray! This not only has lemon essential oil, which I LOVE but also lavender (which is my most used essential oil)! I originally made it for a linen spray (for those of you with fur babies in your bed like us…you get it). Then, I loved it so much I started to spray it on EVERYTHING!
It’s great for fighting against wet pup smell, stinky six year old’s bedrooms, hubby’s work boots and cars w/ kiddos after finding special surprises left for you under the seats:) or just if you wanna fool people coming over that you just spent most of the day dusting and cleaning your butt off 😉
4 ounces distilled water
2 ounces witch hazel or rubbing alcohol
20 drops lemon essential oil
20 drops lavender essential oil
1. Put witch hazel or rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle.*
2. Add essential oils.
3. Add water and shake well.
4. Spray away:)
*Because oil and water don’t mix, witch hazel and rubbing alcohol act as emulsifiers to help the ingredients combine.
