  • Sachets in drawers

    Anybody know a simple way to make them? I have way too many clothes packed in drawers, and when I pull something out to wear, even tho its clean, it may have been in the drawer for a year or more, and it just doesnt smell fresh. Hate the thought of re-washing everything because I know it will just happen again eventually. The few store-bought sachets I've found are pricey, and they dont last very long.

    I don't put sachet in the drawers, I just cut out the perfume smelly pages out of magazines and put those in the drawers. Yes, I do get tons of magazines. LOL

      A simple way of making sachets for your drawers would be to put some nice smelly stuff (bath salts, potpourrie, scented bath soaps etc) into a square of cloth & tie it with a ribbon. If you know how to sew, you could make a simple bag (fold a piece of cloth in half & sew on 2 sides to make a bag) & tie with a ribbon. Depending upon your sewing skill, you could add lace or decorate the bag or square of cloth as desired.

        that certainly beats the magazine cut outs. and it's sounds like it's easy to do.

          Get some small envelopes,make some pin holes with a straight pin, add bath talcum powder to each envelope.Or let some of those wipes dry out, fold over stitch around the edges and add talcum powder to them. stitch closed.

            you can just put a bounce dryer sheet in your drawers and change them as they lose their scent

              Instead of making a satchel. Use an old sock just put in your smelly item (ummm good smelly not dirty sock smelly) and tie the top up and pop it in the drawer.

                I put a wrapped soap bar or one of those leftover air perfume refreshers (the tiny bottle is what I have) in my drawers.

                  That's what I was going to say. Dryer sheets work wonders for your drawers, and also make great car fresheners if you stick one under your seat.... And, they are pretty cheap to replace once they lose their "freshness"....

                    I save rose petals and simply toss them in once dry. Also, I buy dried lavender and put it in tiny bags made of netting. I have also sprayed a cotton ball with essential oil. If you do this, make sure not to saturate the cotton, because the oils are concentrated.
