Fresh-smelling lingerie is a surefire way to ensure daylong freshness. If you’re looking for simple yet effective tips to keep them smelling good, you’re in the right place. In this article, we share a few amazing tips to keep your delicates smelling fresh.

1) Fabric Softener

If you’re washing your lingerie in the washing machine, add 1 tbsp. of fabric softener to the rinse cycle. If you’re hand-washing your delicates, add ½ a tbsp. of fabric softener to a bucket of water after rinsing them. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes and then hang them to dry.

2) Vinegar

Vinegar is a simple way of getting your lingerie smelling fresh. In ½ a bucket of lukewarm water, add 1 tbsp. of white vinegar. Submerge your delicate items in this bucket and wait 30 minutes. Then wash as you normally would. Vinegar helps to kill the odour-causing bacteria and adds a fresh smell.

3) Essential Oils

Create a mixture comprising ½ a cup of water and 5-6 drops of your favourite essential oil. Take 2-3 cotton balls and soak them in this mixture. Once the cotton balls have soaked up the solution, place them in a mesh bag. Hang the bag in the drawer or compartment where you store your lingerie. For a floral smell, mix 3 drops of rose essential oil and 2 drops of geranium essential oil. For an exotic smell, mix 3 drops of spicy black pepper essential oil, 1 drop of lemon essential oil and 2 drops of ylang-ylang essential oil.

4) Lavender Water

Lavender water is another way of making your lingerie smell good and it is easily available in the market. If you are washing your lingerie in your washing machine, add 1 tbsp. of lavender water before the rinse cycle.
