Perfuming the whole house is one of the priorities we give ourselves every day to make the environment always fresh and cozy. In addition to natural perfumers, there are plenty of methods that can be taken advantage of that we would never expect! One of them is curtains, that is, how to make the most of them to spread an intoxicating smell around the house starting with washing. Are you curious to learn more? You just have to discover these tricks with me!
Let’s see what to do first of all when washing curtains, which is the most important step! There are some curtains that can be machine washed, but you will always have to make sure by reading the instructions on the washing labels. Anyway, if they can go in the washing machine, I recommend washing them with 1 scoop of baking soda put inside the drum and 1 tablespoon of organic soap to put inside the detergent tub. The combination of these two ingredients will get you super fragrant and soft curtains! On the other hand, if you wash them by hand, fill the tub with warm water and pour in 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 2 tablespoons of organic soap. Let them soak overnight, then rinse several times and that’s it! You will have gotten perfect curtains!
Drying the curtains is extremely important in order to spread a good scent in the house! In fact, you may know that it is always recommended to dry them vertically, but why not already mount them near the balconies while they are still wet? This way they will spread all the smell they got during washing, and it will last a long time! Moreover, this is also the best way to make them dry properly without risking yellowing them with sunlight or making them smell.
In addition to washing and drying, there is intense perfume to prepare at home with a few simple but very effective ingredients! You will see that once you discover this quick and easy remedy, you won’t be able to do without it at home anymore and it will also help you keep your curtains fresher for an extended period of time. These are items you are sure to have around the house, let’s find out all the details!
Let’s start with the ingredients, here is what you need:
- 1 cup of water (best if demineralized)
- 6 drops of lavender essential oil
- 1 level teaspoon of baking soda
Lavender possesses a perfect smell to sprinkle around the house because it relaxes and never disturbs the sense of smell. However, you can choose any other type of essential oil whose smell intoxicates you.
The procedure is very simple, let’s see it now! You will first have to dissolve the teaspoon of baking soda in the 1 cup of water, try to make it dissolve as much as possible. Next, add the essential oil drops and stir a little. Now all you have to do is pour it all inside a spray bottle with the help of a funnel and there you go!
Method of use
Having obtained your curtain perfumer, all that remains is to figure out its mode of use! It is actually very simple, you will only have to spray it on the curtains whenever you feel the need. Being made of fabric, the curtains will retain the smell, which will consequently be smelled for longer in the house. Remember to always keep a proper distance so as not to get them too wet.
We recommend always reading any washing instructions for curtains so that you can tell if the fabric they are made of is suitable for machine washing or should be washed by hand. Do not use the ingredients listed if you have an allergy or hypersensitivity.
