This Is The Best Shortcut To Refresh Your Sheets And Towels

For linens, towels, and other fabrics that smell as fresh and clean as they look, this simple lavender linen spray is just the thing you need!

Whether it’s our clothing or our bath towels or our sheets, we all want the various fabrics in our home to be clean. But cleanliness isn’t all about appearances. In fact, I would say that with fabric especially, the way something smells is equally as important as the way it looks! 🙂

And the purpose of today’s blog post is to arm you with a simple tool you can use to ensure that all of the fabric and linens in your home smell as clean as they look. I’ll be showing you how to use natural ingredients to make a lavender-scented linen spray, and I know you’re going to love it as much as I do! I’ll start by sharing the recipe, and after that I’ll tell you about some of my favorite ways to use it.

As far as supplies go, the only thing you’ll need (apart from the actual ingredients) is a small spray bottle that holds about 4 ounces. I always recommend using dark-colored glass containers when storing anything that contains essential oils, because it helps preserve the aromatic and therapeutic qualities of the oils. You can find a 4-ounce amber glass spray bottle that’s perfect for this project in my shop!

How To Make A Lavender Linen Spray


2 Tbsp rubbing alcohol*
10 drops lavender essential oil
~6 Tbsp distilled water

*Note: If you don’t happen to have any rubbing alcohol on hand, you could use witch hazel or unflavored vodka instead!


  1. Remove the spray top and pour the alcohol and lavender oil into the bottle.
  2. Fill the remaining space in the bottle with distilled water (about 6 tablespoons), then replace the spray top.
  3. Shake the bottle to mix the ingredients. Shake lightly before each use, as the ingredients tend to separate over time.

How To Use Your Lavender Linen Spray

Spritz this spray over your bed linens, towels, curtains, throw pillows, furniture upholstery, and more! It’s an easy way to naturally freshen fabrics with a light scent that isn’t cloying or overpowering.

You can spray it over clothing before ironing to help steam out wrinkles and add a fresh scent, or use it to freshen up spare sets of bedding and towels that have been sitting in your linen closet for a while.
