How to Make Your Own Linen Spray to Keep Your Home and Clothes Smelling Fresh

The secret ingredient is in your liqour cabinet.

When you want your home to smell fresh, clean and inviting – but you just don’t have time to do a full spring clean — linen spray is the answer. You can spritz this sweet-scented spray on almost anything to give it a fresh lease on life — soft furnishings, bed linen, clothing, rugs — and your home will feel cleaner immediately.

Even better news? Linen spray is incredibly easy to make at home — just follow the instructions below.


  • 30 drops essential oil (we love lemon, lavender or rose hip. You can also use a blend of two oils)
  • 1 1/2 cups distilled water
  • 3 oz. vodka


  • Mix water and vodka in a jar, add a lid and shake to combine.
  • Add oil and shake again until all ingredients are combined.
  • Using a funnel, pour into a spray bottle. You’re done!
