Tired of having dirty-smelling laundry? If so then it’s time to try some new methods. In this article, I will be showing you how to make laundry smell good.
Here are some things you should use’
Lavender essential oil
Lavender essential oil is one of the best scent boosters you can use when doing your laundry. Whether you are using it to make your clothes or your bed sheets smell fresh there is no denying that it’s a really good substitute for fabric softener.
To make your laundry smell good with lavender essential oil, all you have to do is put 3 drops of it inside the washer when you are doing the laundry. Then after washing them; place them in the dryer and after that, you’ll realize that your laundry smells 10x better than before.
Everyone knows about fabric softener. They are really good at making your laundry smell good. There isn’t much instruction I can do here, however, I at least recommend that you use a good-smelling fabric softener that won’t affect sensitive skin.
Use dryer sheets
Dryer sheets are the best at making even the most boring scentless laundry smell really good. All you have to do is place 3-5 dryer sheets inside the dryer and then place the laundry inside of it to dry. After drying them you’ll realize that your laundry smells really good.
Diy dryer sheet
This is just a fun thing that I thought I should add since it’s somewhat related to dryer sheets. Making your own dryer sheets is really fun and easy; all you have to do is follow these steps.
- Get a large bowl and fill it up with warm water
- Add 2-3 cups of fabric softener into the bowl
- Then place 2-3 clean microfiber cloths inside the bowl of water
- Make sure the cloths stay there for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes take out the cloths and wring them out.
- Now immediately place them in the dryer with your laundry

Extra tips on how to make your laundry smell good
Always clean inside your washing machine
This is really important. The number of dirty clothes that goes inside the washing machine almost every week can automatically make it smell bad after a while. Sometimes you will see a build-up of laundry detergent inside the washer and cleaning that away will automatically make it smell better.
Always use the hot water settings when washing your clothes
This is really important. If your clothes or linens can handle hot water then you should use it. This is because the warm water will get rid of any bad odor that’s coming from inside the washer which will prevent your clothes from smelling bad.
