Country Clothesline Fragrance OilCountry Clothesline Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Spring is upon us, finally we can hang our clothes out on the line and enjoy the sunshine.  Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil is the aroma of fresh air, clean linens and sunshine all wrapped up in a bottle.  For me this one takes me back to my childhood.  I remember my mother hanging the clothes out on the clothesline each day.  My favorite days were when she would wash the sheets.  Me, being a kid, I would run right through the sheets and let the scent of clean cotton hit my face.  Looking back, my mom never said a word, even when I ended up pulling the sheets off the line.  My mom had so much patience and just let me be a kid.  This fragrance oils triggers that memory of a carefree childhood and transports me to simpler times.  What memories does Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil bring back for you?

What Does Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of fresh powder, light musk, and just a hint of fresh spring flowers of daffodils and tulips.

Top Notes: clean air, pineapple, orange
Mid Notes: tuberose, jasmine, cyclamen, lily, violet, daffidil, tulip
Base Notes: woods, musk, fresh powder

How Do Our Customers Use Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil?

Candle makers can use up to 10% Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil in their homemade candles or wax tarts, using paraffin wax or vegetable wax.  If you wish to color you candle or homemade tarts, use 2 drops of blue liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of a blue color block into your melted wax.  As always, crayons can not be used as a adequate substitute for actual candle dyes in your candles as they will clog your wick.  The use of gel wax is not compatible for creating candles using this clean scent.

Handcrafted soap makers can use Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil at a maximum recommendation of 5% to craft amazing handcrafted soap.  It can be by cold process soap or melt and pour soaps.  Our cold process soap testing results for this fresh scent showed no ricing, very slight acceleration, no separation, no discoloration.  I suggest soaping at room temperature.  Scent holds strong and true.  As far as other bath at body products, such as bath oils, bath bombs, and bath gels, our Country Clotheslines Fragrance Oil works great at the recommended 5% fragrance oil or lower.  When coloring, we recommend that you use blue soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. I suggest using our Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant.  Never use candle dye in any body products, they will stain your skin.

Many other creations can be made using Country Clothesline scent as well!  First, this many of our customers use this scent in their homemade laundry detergent.  Room scenters can use up to 50% in homemade potpourri and incense projects.  Also, creams, lotions, perfumes, and cleaning products are all safe to use with a maximum usage recommendation of 5% of this laundry fragrance oil.

How to Make Homemade Dryer Balls

Laundromat Fragrance Oil

I know that monsters do not exist. However, when it comes to the dryer monster; you know the one with the insatiable appetite for socks; there I may have to beg to differ.

How to Make Homemade Dryer Balls

It has long boggled the mind of many launderers through the years.  How can two socks go into the dryer and only 1 come out?  What happened to the other sock?  Where could my other sock have possibly gone?

These are all great unanswered questions of the universe.  I don’t know why, but I hold on to the single mate less sock.  In fact, I have a box where all of the heart broken socks stay; waiting for their mates to come home, longing to be a pair again.  I know I personify the socks, they really do not have feelings, but I feel bad for them.  Their purpose in life is now over.  They will no longer work as a team to keep my feet warm and comfy.  Their future cut short, and they sit there in my dark, lonely basement.  Poor things; I place the blame on the dryer monster.

So, what to do?  Throughout the years, I have accumulated quite the amount.  We have made sock puppets, used them to clean, and even salvaged some in what I refer to as a loose pair; technically they are not paired, but they look close enough.  But, one thing is for sure; I will not throw them away.  I am far too frugal for this.

Still, the single socks keep showing up in the masses, and I needed a better game plan.  It was then that I figured why not make dryer balls out of them.  I have since started using my matchless socks in a brand new way therefore making me feel better and also making my laundry smell the best it ever has.

I figured this would be an excellent post to share because I know that there are millions of unmatched socks out there desperately waiting to be used again.

Ingredients you will need:
Socks- heavy duty socks work best
Flaxseed- the use of flaxseed adds weight to the dryer ball.  This then allows for a nice fluff in your laundry.
Dried Herbs- I will list some great herbs for this a little later.
Fragrance Oil– I will also suggest some killer laundry scents a little later as well.

Prior to starting this project, you will want to prep the filler for the dryer balls.  In a bowl that will not be used again for food, place your dried herbs, flaxseed, and 20 drops fragrance oil.  You want your mixture to be equal portions of flaxseed to dried herbs.  Let this mixture sit and absorb.  Occasionally use a spoon to give all the herbs a chance to absorb the fragrance oil.

Step 1:  Take the socks and cut the cuff off.  Any size cuff will work; it will only vary the size of your dryer ball.  You will only be using this elastic portion of the sock.  The likelihood of holes and give on this section of the sock is least diminished from use.  Please Note:  Any holes or tears deem the sock unusable for this project; save these ones for cleaning.

Step 2:  Once you have all of the cuffs cut, turn them all inside out.  Using a needle and thread, sew one of the openings completely shut.  I suggest a double stitch to make sure the dryer ball does not reopen.  Once one end of the sock is sewed shut, turn the sock back to right side out.

Step 3:  Fill the sock with the now fragrant dried herb/flaxseed mixture.  Be extremely careful not to spill the mixture out once the sock is filled.  You will want to leave about ½” open from the top to sew the dryer ball shut.

Step 4:  It is time to sew again.  Suggestion tip:  A double stitch is the way to go.

Step 5:  You are ready to use!  Just pop one of these little babies in the dryer with your wet load.  When you laundry load is finished, your clothes will just have the most amazing scent to them, and they will have quite a fluff to them too.

That’s it.  Total time to craft this project is about 20 minutes.  Now, as promised here are the herbs that work best for your dryer ball filler.

Great Herbs to use for a phenomenal dyer ball- use one or several it is all up to you!  Please note: not adding fragrance to your dryer ball is an option however, this will allow for a single use scenting only based on the herb selected for use.

Calendula Flowers
Chamomile Flowers
Dandelion Leaf cut & sifted
Elder Flowers
Lavender Flowers
Patchouli Herb
Peppermint Leaf
Red Clover Blossoms
Rose Buds & Petals
Rose Petals
Rosemary Leaf
Sage Leaf
Spearmint Leaf
Strawberry Leaf
*Cloves (this will have a strong scent on its own, using this herb will affect the overall scent if mixed with a fragrance oil)
*Anise Stars (this will have a strong scent on its own, using this herb will affect the overall scent if mixed with a fragrance oil)

Suggestions for fragrance oils to use with dryer ball–  Please note:  any fragrance oil will work to scent your laundry, these are just suggestions of our laundry scents.
