There's a scent for everything out there. Candles. Detergent. Room fresheners. Hairspray.
"Mulberry and Pine."
"Your Grandma's Perfume."
Well maybe not that last one, but you get the idea. Ever smell a "fresh rain" scent? Here's how to give your laundry that unmistakable whiff of summer glory:
Leave your clothes or sheets on an outdoor clothesline for at least two days, during which a quick thunderstorm passes by. (You can plan to do this when the weather forecast calls for showers or, if you have my luck, it'll rain within 2 hours of hanging clothes on the line anyway. I always trigger the weather when I load up the clothesline. It's like magic.)
Let dry completely in the sun, in order to lock in that unmistakable rain scent and fade the clothes just a bit. Or a lot. If completely drenched, this may take an extra day or two.
Remove, inhale deeply, fold and put away! Easy! "Fresh-Rain Scent" the low budget way!
