Burying your nose in the scarf around your neck is often the first impulse when you find yourself faced with a particularly stinky situation. It is always a good idea to add a pleasant scent to your scarves. The reason for doing this is, even if the air around you is foul, wearing your favourite scent on your scarf will lift your mood all day.
Read on to find out easy tips to scent your scarf while washing.
1) Use Scented Detergent
Wash your scarf with a scented detergent as per the instructions on the care label. Please note that delicate fabrics like silk and wools should only be washed on a gentle cycle in your machine.
2) Add Essential Oils
Add 10-15 drops of your favourite essential oil to the washing load and wash as you normally do. Do not hesitate to mix a few oils to create your own customised scent.
3) Remove From Washer
Once your scarves have been washed, put them out for drying without delay. Keeping your scarves in the machine after they’ve been washed and rinsed will lend them a musty odour.
4) Dry Completely
You should never dry your scarves in direct sunlight as this can cause them to fade. Also, avoid using the dryer as it can damage the fabric of your scarves. For proper maintenance, dry your scarves indoors, away from direct sunlight. Check to ensure that your scarves are completely dry before you put them away in your wardrobe. Trapped moisture in the scarf can make them smell unpleasant.
