How To Make Linen Spray
The simple and low-cost homemade linen spray can not only effectively remove the peculiar smell in the sheets, furniture and space, and bring a fresh and pleasant environment; it can also avoid the possible health risks caused by the use of chemical ingredients, making your home environment more healthy and sustainable.
- small plastic spray bottle
- large cup
- mixing spoon (optional)
- funnel (optional)
- 1/2 cup distilled water
- 3 ounces unflavored vodka (or rubbing alcohol)
- 20 drops of essential oil (such as lavender or rose)
This article will introduce you to our commonly used linen spray recipes with aromatic essential oil combinations. Before you start, you might be wondering “Why is there vodka in the linen spray?”
To help disperse the oil and keep the scent in the air longer, vodka is a good choice since oil and water don’t mix. However, if you don’t want to use vodka, you can choose to add more distilled water or hydrosols, such as rose water, instead. I do not recommend using rubbing alcohol.
① Prepare a clean spray bottle with a capacity of about 4 oz (120 ml).
②Add non-alcoholic vodka, which will help to disperse essential oils and prolong the persistence of fragrance.(can be poured directly into a spray bottle or measuring cup)
③ Add 20 drops of your favorite essential oil. You can use one essential oil alone or mix different oils according to your preference. Lavender is commonly used in linens because its soothing and relaxing scent is thought to help promote sleep.
④ Pour distilled water or pure dew into the spray bottle and fill up about 3/4 of the capacity.
⑤Close the cap of the spray bottle tightly and shake it gently several times to mix all the ingredients well.
Precautions: Remember to shake the liquid in the bottle well before use to ensure the ingredients are evenly mixed. Plus, store out of direct sunlight, they’re super easy to make, and last for months (meaning longer life for linen spray)

What kind of alcohol for linen spray?
To create your own DIY linen spray, gather the following ingredients: 1 cup of distilled water, 1/4 cup of isopropyl alcohol, and 10-20 drops of essential oils.
Can I use isopropyl alcohol for linen spray?
Yes, you can. The addition of rubbing alcohol provides linen spray with disinfectant properties, while the selection of specific essential oils allows you to incorporate additional beneficial properties into your fabric refresher.
What is the best base for linen spray?
Incorporating a cyclomethicone base into linen sprays is an excellent choice, as it offers easy evaporation and enhances the scent projection. Moreover, it is safe for skin and poses no risk of irritation if it comes into contact with you.
How long does homemade linen spray last?
Typically, when sprayed in the air, room spray aroma can linger for 1-3 days, depending on the air circulation of the space. However, when applied to fabrics or bedding, the scent of the room spray can last for several weeks.
Can I use tap water for linen spray?
Yes, pour approximately 1 oz (half the bottle) of distilled or purified water into the bottle. By using distilled or purified water instead of regular tap water, you can ensure that any contaminants have been removed, thereby enhancing the shelf life of your spray. However, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can live on the wild side and use tap water.
