WFMW - Fresh Laundry

Kristen wants to know our favorite WFMW. Hands down, it's this one. Want to know the best way to keep clothes and linens smelling like you just took them out of the dryer? Get a Yankee Candle Car Jar, clean cotton scent.

Yep, I just said car air freshener. Stay with me now. Follow the directions on the package to open and release a little bit of the scent at a time. (Because seriously, throwing the entire wrapper away will make your eyes water.) Loop it on a clothes hanger and hang it in your closet or place it on a shelf with your linens and voila! Your laundry will always smell fantastic. Cut away more of the packaging as the scent begins to fade, to release more. This $3 investment can last months.
You can use any scent that floats your boat, I'm just a huge fan of Clean Cotton. My house may not always be clean, but it sure smells clean! I know my idea sounds crazy, but if I could put a scratch-n-sniff link out here you'd be a believer!

ooh, I had this candle once and for some reason scented candles give me a headache...but I SO thought goss I wish my clothes smelt like this.
I'm going to try the hang up thing.
But do you know what I spurge on for my sheets and towels?
Tide and Downey Lavender/ Vanilla scent soap. Oh goodness is it so good and ONLY sheets and towels because they are more expensive then Gain! Thank for the tip.

I like it! How.. domestic of you. If I do this, my husband will think I am all over this laundry business. Which I am not.
Thanks for the cool links, I am having fun checking them out!

A wonderful tip, as always...but do you want to know what really made me shriek with laughter when I visited your site? Livin' On A Prayer. You were definitely not alone when you wore out the rewind button on your boom box.

I used to make the mix tape for my junior high sock hops. Let's just say that Jon Bon Jovi always made an appearance at our school dances!
