Don’t Throw Out Expired Perfume, Use Them This Way Instead

Most of us have so many fragrances these days that we tend to get bored and tired of them very easily. We want to get rid of them, but don’t know how we can do that, as we feel bad chucking it in the bin or just disposing of it. However, there are many ways in which one can utilize their old boring perfumes, instead of wasting them.

The most common way to utilize your old perfume is by using it as a room freshener. You can either spray it all over the room, or add a few drops of perfume in boiling water over the stove. The steam of the perfumed water will infiltrate all over, thus spreading the fragrance all over the house. You can use as much as perfume as you like, depending on your choice. If you do not want a light room freshener, then be sure only to use a few drops.

Potpourri is a very popular feng shui and decorative item, used in most houses today. But the fragrance of the potpourri doesn’t last for a very long time, so you can use to your old unwanted perfumes, to revive the potpourri. The wooden leaves absorb oils and liquids very easily, making it easy for you to pour a few drops of perfume and revive the smell.

Writing notes or sending handwritten letters has nearly become extinct these days, thanks to technology. However, you can revive the tradition in your own unique way. You can spray some of your old fragrances all over the stationary, or note pads, and write small notes or letters and send them out. These will give a very good impression of you and everyone will know it is a note from you as soon as they smell the fragrance. You can also use the perfume on other stationary items like your pens and pencils to enhance the pleasure of writing.

Another unique and excellent way of using your old worn out perfume is by pouring a few drops into your bath water. This can help make your bath more pleasurable and will invigorate you completely. Using perfume in your bath can be very cost effective, as you do not spend money on buying expensive aroma or bath oils. By using the old perfume, you can enjoy the memories attached with it, making your bath more enjoyable. If you like a strong fragranced bath, you have the choice of adding as much perfume as you like.

Most of the time, we do not like parting with things, which have special memories or sentiments, attached to it. Women especially do not like discarding their favorite perfume even it has become very old and stale. Now you have many ways in which you could use your favorite perfume, instead of discarding it.
