I have my linens stored in some big beautiful old wooden drawers set into the hall of our home. I love having them there but the old wooden drawers smell just that old and wooden. I go to great lengths to have my laundry smell fresh and clean. I even use an in-wash scent booster that makes my laundry smell great out of the dryer. I fold my sheets and then put them into the drawer for that size sheet, even just a week later I pull them out to put on the bed and they smell like a musty old wooden drawer. Not wanting to change where I store them I began trying to find a solution. I tried scrubbing out the drawers with cleaner, no change.
Then I had a great idea, use my in-wash scent booster which has a smell I love to combat the drawer smell. I got small mesh bags at my local dollar tree (6 for $1) and put about a tablespoon of the small beads in them and put the bags in the wooden drawers with my sheets.
Now my sheets smell like they are fresh from the dryer whenever I get them out! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
