Everybody’s had one of those moments when their breath doesn’t smell so great. Most of the time, you can fix that by brushing your teeth or chewing a piece of gum.

But when you’ve been breathing in your mask and the smell is embedded in the fabric…bad news. There’s only one way to get your mask to smell good again, by washing it.

I don’t know about you, but I have one fabric mask that’s my favorite. Sometimes it gets stinky, but I don’t do laundry every single day. So I use this natural mask freshener spray to keep my mask smelling nice until laundry day.

Mask Spray Ingredients

This mask spray uses simple ingredients, and costs pennies to make.

Witch hazel: witch hazel is an extract made from the leaves, bark, and twigs of the witch hazel plant. It’s used to dilute and convey the essential oils (the active ingredients) to the mask fabric. Be sure to get 100% pure witch hazel–not mixed with alcohol or aloe.

Essential oils: essential oils provide natural, safe scents without harmful chemicals. We use essential oils all over our house–in our diffusers to relieve stress; in natural insect repellent spray; and in homemade foaming hand soap.

My favorite mask spray scent combo is lemon and rosemary, and my daughter likes orange and peppermint. You can use any single oil or combination you’d like.

The small size means that it’s easy to tuck into your purse or backpack so you always have it when you need it. I’ve even used my mask spray to freshen the fabric of my car seats after having a doggie passenger!
