Before you begin the spraying and spritzing, here we have some of the most asked questions and their answers.
Do essential oils stain clothes?
When spraying fabrics or clothes, make sure to use essential oil with no color or light color. Some oils like spikenard, German chamomile, and tansy come in bright colors, which may leave a mark on the fabric. If you are unsure of the color of your spray oil, do a spritz test on a fabric patch to be on the safe side.

Using DIY linen spray, your sheets, headboard towels, clothes, and soft furnishing are a fair game. However, you should avoid them on clothes that touch-sensitive skin areas like undergarments, collars, etc. You can even use them as air fresheners.
