With summer coming up, our social media pages are being bombarded with pictures of beaches, outdoor BBQs, and plenty of vacations in the sunshine. For those of us who are staying in the city this summer, we know that with the clouds and wind- some days we might just want to stay inside and bundle up with a good book, a loved one, or our Netflix account. The only thing that can make that better is to have a fresh pair of sheets that have the relaxing and comforting scent of lavender. With these DIY lavender dryer bags, you can have that year-round and for half the cost of buying pre-made ones or buying dryer sheets!
You only need two supplies: dried lavender buds and reusable cotton tea bags – both can be found at your local health food store!
Fill your bags about 1/4-1/2 way full and make sure that you tie a very tight knot to ensure that the lavender buds don’t spill in your dryer. For an extra scent try adding a few drops of lavender essential oil into the bags as well! It’s as simple as that! You’re ready to use your lavender dryer bags.
Each bag that you make should last around 10 cycles. If you prep all your bags ahead of time make sure that you keep them fresh by storing them in a jar. These aren’t just for the dryer either – try storing the bags in your dressers or at the top of your closet to keep all of your clothes smelling fresh!
