One of life’s simple pleasures is a lovely scented linen spray. If you have never used one, you really should give it a try. It is a great way to refreshen your sheets midweek. It also makes a great spritz when ironing your laundry. I like to have different scents for different needs – one for everyday spritzing of my sheets, one for the rest of the house, one for ironing, and an eucalyptus scent for when I get sick. If you’re interested in learning how to make linen spray, then keep reading.
Don’t you just love it when you pull out clean linens and they still have that fresh from the dryer scent? I know I do. However, unless you launder your things each and every week, they lose that freshness. That’s why I love to use drawer sachets to maintain that smell. Of course, investing in that many sachets can become an expensive luxury. That is, unless you make them yourself! So, today I am sharing with you my method for how to DIY drawer sachets. It is quick and super easy. I have two different methods. Method one, I use for my linens. Method two I use to make custom scents for my intimate drawers.
How To Adjust Washing Machine Water Levels – One of my biggest frustrations of late has been my new front load washing machine. I recently bought a whole new set, shiny and pretty to look at, with all of its futuristic buttons that light up and make Close Encounters of the Third Kind music. I guess they have to add all that new fangled stuff to keep you from paying attention to the fact that you will no longer be getting clean laundry. Can I please have my 1990s machine back, now?
Recently, I was searching through Pinterest looking for some good pins to add to my flooring board. (BTW – I highly recommend following me). 😉 What I noticed were so very many articles on cleaning wood floors that were offering some very wrong advice. Now, I don’t claim to be a professional flooring installer, but I know my way around wood, and I have done my fair share of flooring installs and repairs. So, I just wanted to offer my two cents on how to care for wood floors, and what you should not do.
Well, one more summer has come to an end, and a wonderful Fall seems to be just around the corner. I love the crisp, cool weather. I love being able to pull out my Fall wardrobe – chucking the flip flops for my socks and booties. There are only a few issues with Fall that I dread… ragweed pollen and Fall cleaning. My goal each year is to complete each item on my Ultimate Fall Cleaning Checklist Printable before the ragweed pollen season ends. (My sinuses let me know if I have succeeded) 😉
