3 Ways to Use a Multipurpose Natural DIY Linen Spray:
#1: A DIY linen spray can make a big difference in things we don’t launder that often like comforters, shower curtains, and throw blankets.
While linen is eco-friendly and often more durable than cotton, you may be thinking it’s more for display and too difficult to wash.
Well, come to find out you can easily wash linen yourself, without going to great lengths or complicated care instructions – learn how to care for linen here.
#2: Use this all-natural fabric remedy to replenish drapes, rugs, and throw pillows throughout your home without bulky cleaning equipment like steamers. Simply mist your soft surroundings with this recipe for a DIY linen spray!
#3: I also find it helpful to use linen sprays in place of wasteful and often skin irritating dryer sheets. You can easily apply a homemade linen spray to natural wool dryer balls. Learn more about how and why to use wool dryer balls.

Lemon and vanilla complement each other so well! I bet this smells lovely. This is a wonderful idea, and such gorgeous pictures too — but that’s no different from usual! 😉
Awe thank you Kyla, it does have a beautiful scent. I love to spray our sheets with it and throw pillows on the couch too!
I have made this and use it all the time now, it’s lovely. Thank you Kristy!!
Thanks Debbie, it’s my favorite linen spray right now too! I’ll likely switch back lavender come autumn, but until then it’s lemon everything in our household 😉
This is great to know, thanks
