One of Australia’s top national bloggers has shared her simple secret to keeping your clothes smelling amazing all year round.

The Melbourne mum who posts online as Mama Mila, shared that her handy trick can also be used in “drawers, cabinets and linen closets.”

She begins her hack by placing five drops of peppermint oil and lavender oil on cotton balls.

Together, this mixture deodorizes clothes and helps repel insects and moths.

Then she puts the scented cotton balls in a small muslin drawstring bag and hangs it on a hanger hook.

“The scent lasts up to three weeks and when it fades, just fill it with oils, no need to change cotton pads frequently,” says Chantel.

Many have left comments praising Chantel’s simple trick, saying they’ll definitely give it a try.

Last month, the Melbourne mum went viral for more dress hacks when she revealed her three-step secret to sparkling white laundry.

In a TikTok video, Chantel revealed that she soaks clothes in dissolvable denture tablets to remove all traces of sweat and dirty stains.

She also adds half a cup of baking powder to her laundry to naturally brighten clothes and mixes two drops of eucalyptus oil with laundry detergent for “extra stain-removing power.”

The tips, which have been viewed 109,000 times since they went live, have prompted dozens of responses from viewers suggesting their own.

One woman said she washes the whites with ice cold water on a one hour cycle, then adds a drop of fabric softener towards the end.

“Super clean and fresh,” she added.

Others thanked Chantel for sharing her tips and said they were looking forward to trying the denture tablets for themselves.
