Homemade Linen Spray



I love linen spray!It is wonderful to keep on hand. Freshen up a spare bedroom for guest! Freshen up the curtains, beds, linen closet and more. The scent of Downy is my all time favorite because it takes me back to  Grandma Baker's house. I loved Grandma's house. I am just sure her mansion in Heaven floats with that Downy smell. I remember how sound I slept at her house, how relaxed I felt and I always woke up refreshed to a big farm breakfast! (when the chickens crowed)

Making linen spray is so easy and cost so much less than store bought brands. You know exactly what is being sprayed onto your linens and have comfort in knowing that only pure natural products are being used. 

Supplies:

  •    16 or 32 oz. spray bottle
  •      witch hazel (Walmart carries this in their first aid dept.~$1.48)
  •    Your choice essential oil (Walmart now carries but Natures Garden is cheaper and stronger)
  •    Distilled water
  1. Mix the 2 tbsp. witch hazel and about 20 drops of essential oil 
  2. Then, add distilled water to the bottle until it is almost full.
  3. Screw on the cap and shake the bottle to disperse the oils evenly throughout.
  4. Shake lightly before each use.


Easy~Homemade Liquid Hand Soap


Are you tired of spending so much money in the cleaning isle?
I have been making my own cleaners and Laundry Soap with great results. If you have not tried my Laundry Recipes they are posted at the end of my blog. I am saving tons of money and time. I make huge quantities in minutes. I am running to the store much less. With just a few ingredients I can meet all our needs with a fraction of the cost. I am still experimenting. Here is my lastest money saving recipe~

Liquid Hand Soap~
1/2 bar soap (leftover pieces are great~I really like Dove)
4 cups of water
1/4 cup of my handy dandy Borax (Look at my Borax post)
1/4 cup of Washing Soda
a few drops of essential oil (optional~where I buy mine is posted at the end of my blog)

Grate soap. Place in a saucepan with water and heat.Do not boil! Add borax or washing soda. Stir until dissolved. Pour into a 1 gallon jug and top off with water. It will thicken as it cools . Place in a pump bottle.  What a savings. I just love not depending on store bought thing that I can make from my own pantry! Try it you will like it........wink! You may have to add more water after it thickens to get desired consistency!
