Homemade air freshener is wonderful, but it is my cabinets and drawers that sometimes need freshening. Homemade drawer fresheners aren't a new idea, but they are a simple and cost-effective way to add a fresh clean fragrance to your dresser drawers or add a special touch to your wardrobe. They can also be made from fully natural ingredients, and are reusable!
Why use Homemade Fresheners for Drawer?
The chemical fragrance we purchased from the market that includes conventionally scented laundry detergent. Those laundry detergents and fabric softeners are associated with such items as brain damage and cancer. And can sometimes trigger allergic responses from people who suffer from allergies.
Now I'm using natural alternatives but they also don't leave a permanent fragrance on clothes.
I'd just skip the toxins so drawer sachets and closets are an easy, natural way to freshen my clothes and drawers. Sachets offer an easy solution to a common issue that has been in storage for a while affecting cabinets and drawers. When fabric products sit in a wardrobe, dresser, or storage tote unused for a long time, they can take on a musty smell that can require several washes to get rid of completely, the same for the drawers and cabinets.
But you can avoid the musty smell from becoming a problem in the first place by simply keeping a few scented sachets in your closets. But what good are those sachets if you don't like how they smell, or if you think the fragrance is too strong? Therefore, I suggest that you make your own!
The benefits of making your sachets
To make your sachets is, I suppose, a no-brainer!
You have full control over the final product. You can infuse them with your choice of fragrance, and you are in control of how strong or subtle the fragrance is.
Follow the simple steps below to give it a try for yourself!
Pick 4 cotton balls and add 1-2 drops of your chosen essential oil to each. (I like using essential lavender oil here but you can use any essential oil or oil mixture you want!
Tuck the balls of cotton into one of the bags, then close the bag. Repeat for making as many sachets as you want or need, and substitute them with fresh ones when the fragrance begins to fade.
How to Use It?
To help keep the fabric new, store sachets wherever musty odors exist. Place one in each cabinet, put a few in each wardrobe, or even tuck one into your winter coat pocket to keep it smelling new in warmer weather!
Not only will your sachets keep the musty warehouse smell from taking on your clothing, but they will make your storage areas smell fantastic too!
