Perfume Tip

Ok, we all I know I love perfume. But have you ever wondered what to do with those little perfume samples you get? I don't know about you, but I accumulate quite a few (3 free samples with every Sephora order, people), and they're not easy to store or use - so what to do with them?
Easy answer. Use the sample on 1 or 2 cotton balls then place the cotton balls inside a dresser drawer to make your clothes smell nice. They last for weeks, sometimes a couple of months - and nothing goes to waste! :)

Katie that's a really great idea!! I have a bunch of those around and with the chef moving in temporarily am dreading the possibility of "boy smell".

Ralph Lauren always send the best fragrances ever

That's a fabulous idea! I work in the beauty industry and always have a ton of fragrance laying around so I'm definitely going to give it a try. I also put a few drops of old reed diffuser juice in the garbage to make my garbage smell good. Good smelling things make for a happy home :)

Oh and thanks so much for stopping by today and for leaving that sweet comment. You're blog is lovely too!

Great idea!! I never thought of that before!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Such a great idea - I used to always rip out my favorite scent from magazines and place it in my underwear/sock/clothing drawers to keep them smelling yummy. This is a great idea to use up the old samples, especially if it's a great scent! ox

Jess said...

I love Cat Power AND Modern Family! Hooray!
