Dresser Drawer Liners for your Seasonal Clothing Storage

by Penny Keay

Okay, by now most of us have put our seasonal clothing in storage. And, if you don’t actually move them to storage you might just move them to dresser drawers you use to ‘switch’ your seasonal clothing. (That is what I do for my every day wear).

Do you hate opening up a dresser drawer where you have seasonal clothing stored and smell that smell of stored clothing? It makes me want to take the clothing out that I know is perfectly clean and launder them all over again.

Well you can save yourself a lot a time and energy to remedy this 'storage' smell very easily. You can quickly make and use these scented drawer liners in all dresser drawers or even on closet shelving.

Simply go to your local home decorating or lumberyard (we have Menards, Home Depot and Lowe’s, not to mention other privately owned building or home decorating supply stores). Look in the discontinue items bins in the Wallpaper aisle.

What you are looking for is plain wallpaper. You do not want vinyl coated, nor pre-pasted. You want plain wallpaper. Most of the time you can find rolls very cheap - a couple dollars for a roll. Since they will be in the bottom of the drawer and not really seen, any design will do. Of course, if it is a design you like, it is a bonus!

Cut your paper to fit your drawers. Then roll the paper up and place in a heavy plastic bag. Add several drops of your favorite essential oils to a few cotton balls.

Seal all inside for several days so the essential oils can penetrate the paper. Then simply place in your drawers, add your clothing and next spring, hopefully you won't dread opening the drawers!

You can use blotting paper, or plain unprinted newspaper. (If you have a newspaper printer or print shop in the area, often times you can get the ends of the big paper rolls very cheap too.)

Favorite oils to use for this project include but are not limited to Lavender, Rose Otto, Geranium Lemon, Rosemary, Roman Chamomile, and Sweet Marjoram.

My favorite blend is Calming blend it has a lot of floral scenting. If you are storing men’s clothing you might want to use Pine needle, Cedarwood or Sandalwood or The S'WOODS blend.

Just pick your favorite oil or if you are creative, blend a new scent.

Remember that essential oils will help to deter unwanted insects too. Especially Cedarwood, it is known to help repel moths and other insects that like to chew on clothing.

This is the perfect time of the year to get those wallpaper remnants since many stores want to get rid of inventory.

If you don’t have a store around, you can even use paper grocery bags. Just follow the instructions above.
