    Pets'R'us's Note:

    I will never be a domestic goddess, I like cooking but I hate ironing!! Spraying this on the pieces to be ironed makes that dreadful task a bit more bearable! The classic fragrance for this is lavender, but I make up different fragrances all the time, but do choose a clear and not dark colored oil. At the moment I have a mix of lemon and rosemary in the bottle. So far it has never stained any clothes, just make sure you shake the bottle before use. Years ago I received it as a present, now I give this away as a present and it is always appreciated! If it goes cloudy it is not abnormal, some essential oils do that.

      I love the fragrance of this once its ready and the fragrance of this on the clothes that are ironed. It smells so fresh and lovely! After making this, I kept it uncovered in my room(forgot to cover the bottle) and the fragrance just filled my room and it was sooooo good that I just wanted to sink into it! I used surgical spirit(having Ethanol content 70%) as a substitute for the vodka and it worked well. I made this using grapefruit oil as the essential oil. I just gifted one bottle of this to a friend this afternoon and I can't wait to hear from her! She has to do alot of ironing for her family as well as another family she is staying with, so I think she'll be really glad to have this! Thank you so much for sharing such a good recipe. I'm going to share it with as many people as I can :)

      Thank You... For making ironing a little more pleasant!!! This also made the whole room smell nice as I worked. I used peppermint oil on hubby's work shirts. Can't wait to try other scents!
