Linen Spray – Day 28 – 31 Days of DIY Cleaners


Improve your night’s sleep by winding down with freshly spritzed linens.  This helps refresh them and leave a gentle scent behind which will help you catch those illusive z’s faster.  Use lavender essential oil for this particular recipe since that is hands down the best essential oil to help relax you and get you ready for bed.

  • 1/2 cup distilled water
  • 1/2 cup cheap, flavourless and colourless vodka
  • 30-40 drops of lavender essential oils.

Add to a spray bottle and shake well before each use.  Remove your blanket and lightly spray onto your linens.  Allow this to dry for about 20 minutes before getting into bed. Have yourself one peaceful sleep, enjoy!

  1. What is the purpose of the vodka??? Is it important? I make linen spray with just distilled water and lavender essential oil in a cobalt blue glass mister. Anything with essential oils should be kept in either amber glass or cobalt blue glass containers, never clear or plastic or metal.

    • Vodka is a great disinfectant! Think about the amount of bacteria / germs that are in your bed + time in between washing / changing out your bedding, it’s great for taking care of that issue in between washes. I think it’s also great to spray your mattress with vodka. Vodka also helps neutralize any stinky or stale odors so that you’re not just masking it with the essential oil.
