You ever have that problem where your clothes start to smell a little on the funky side, even when you wash them, remember to swtcich to dryer right away (I forget to switch a lot, which leads to a bad smell as well), and really, fully dry them? Maybe it's just our washer and dryer or maybe it's because we use the non smelly non yucky laundry soup that might actually just be made of thickened water, or maybe it's because we are just extra dirty people. But no matter what it is, our clothes as of late have been coming out of the dryer kind of stale..
. I want my clothes to smell fresh, or else why do I bother washing them (ok, I know why, but still)
Being the problem solver that I am, I made these little satchels of good smelling herbs. Sure I could go and buy dryer sheets, but those just smell like chemical ass to me and I might actually prefer the smell of stale clothes. I also have a ton of the nieces oh nice smelling rosemary growing outside my door. It just made sense. Good smelling herbs stuck into a sack and tossed into the dryer with the clothes.
It works like a charm! Our clothes have been smelling nice and freshy fresh! No more stale ass clothes!
Stuff you will need
- A bunch of fresh or a handful of dried, good smelling herbs (rosemary, lavender, cinnamon stick. dill..whatever smells good to you)
- citrus peels (totally optional)
- Scrap faric
- needle and thread or use your sewing machine
Just sew up a little sack roughly the size of your hand,, leaving one side open. Stuff with herbs and peels of your choice and sew the last side up and toss into your next dryer load…
Can be reused 4-5 times. And when it starts to lose its effectiveness, the sack can be riped open on one side and refilled with fresh herbs.
Happy Clothes Washing!
