We like what we iron to smell divine.
And essential oils are a wonderful way to make that happen.
Please DO NOT follow advice I’ve seen to put essential oils in the water tank of your iron.
Oil is heavier than water.
And not only does it not dissolve in the water tank of your iron like you expect – or hope – it to.
It sinks to the bottom of your water tank.
And when you least expect it, it will spit oil all over whatever you’re ironing.
When it decides to throw its dummy out of its mouth.
As well as . . .
When it’s been sitting in your water tank for a while. It will get bored.
And start eating away at the water tank.
Until one day your iron starts leaking. From every orifice.
Like a dam bursting!
Put your essential oil in a bottle of warm water. Shake it well. And spray on your clothes, pillowcases, sheets – after they’re ironed – and while they’re still warm from the heat of your iron – for that sensational heady fragrance that you’re looking for.
And give it a few minutes to let it dry.
And when your spray bottle is empty. Look at what it looks like. Stained and sticky from the oil you’ve put in it.
That’s what happens to your iron!
