Have you ever finished a load of laundry and found that it doesn’t quite have that fresh, clean scent we all love? If you have sensitive skin, or you have another reason for avoiding scented detergents, it can be hard to make your clothes smell nice. But don’t worry. We have a few tips and tricks to solve the problem. Check out this list of great ways to make your laundry smell fantastic.

Spritz Your Laundry with Rose Lavender Water

There is something wonderful about snuggling up under freshly washed sheets, your favorite comforter, or a new duvet. To make the experience even more enjoyable you can spritz your linens in Rose Lavender Water before you toss them in the washer. Your bedding will smell great and you’ll get the extra perk of the relaxing lavender scent lulling you to sleep each night.

Add Citrus Oil to Your Detergent

If you’re looking to give your clothing a clean scent that will last, there is nothing more suited for the task than adding citrus oil to your laundry. To get citrus-scented laundry without purchasing a chemical-laden detergent you’ll need to add a few extra ingredients to your unscented detergent of choice. Grab the following ingredients to get started:

  • one half cup borax
  • one cup of white vinegar
  • 20 drops of lemon citrus oil

Mix all the ingredients and add the finished product to your bottle of laundry detergent. Then, use your detergent as usual and your clothes will have a fresh lemony smell.
