Here’s what you need to make your DIY linen spray:
- 1 cup distilled water
- 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol

- a spray bottle
I have gotten into the habit of saving my old spray bottles so I can just reuse them!
In a glass mix together the rubbing alcohol and 10-20 drops of your essential oils. Pour 1 cup of distilled water into the spray bottle and add the alcohol/essential oil mix. Shake well before spraying your linens!
This homemade room spray is excellent for making any stale room smell fresh! Use it after you’ve cleaned your couch or done a deep clean with your living room zone cleaning.
Now, let’s talk about the therapeutic properties of different essential oils you can use in your DIY febreze fabric refresher!
I love the calming affect lavender has, and it’s perfect to use alone in your linen spray for your bedroom. Adding lemon gives it a bit more of an uplifting scent, which is great for living spaces!
If you really want a combination that will wake you up and make your home smell fresh, you have to try this one! Bergamot is one of my favorite citrus scents. It’s so good!

All of these oils are part of the Kidsafe line which is important to me since I have very young children in the house.

If you don’t have rubbing alcohol or would rather not use it, you can replace it with witch hazel. While witch hazel is usually used topically to relieve inflammation and skin conditions, it won’t come with the same disinfecting properties of rubbing alcohol.
