Laundry scent boosters infuse your clothes with luxurious, long-lasting fragrances. Just toss the beads into your washing machine, add your clothes, and run your usual wash cycle.
Ever unload your washing machine, only to find yourself wishing your laundry smelled a little extra special? Your clothes might be clean and stain-free, but making them smell extra bold and seductive is another task.
In this article, we’ll break down the science behind in-wash scent boosters, why they’re a clutch addition to your laundry routine, and how to use them to get the best results.
What Is Laundry Scent Booster?
Laundry scent booster is a supplement for laundry detergent that enhances the fragrance of clothes, towels, and sheets. It typically comes in the form of small, solid beads that dissolve in all water temperatures, giving fabrics an added burst of fragrance.
Think of it as your laundry detergent’s sophisticated sidekick.
3 Benefits of Laundry Scent Booster
Whether you want to smell sexy for date night or your bath towels need a boost, here are three reasons why using scent booster is a no-brainer.
1. Infuse Your Clothes with Amazing Scents
Laundry scent booster beads contain fragrances that dissolve when they come into contact with water, infusing your clothes with fresh scents that can easily last up to a whole week.
Sure, laundry detergent is designed to make your clothes smell great. But factors such as your water type and drying process can impact how much fragrance is leftover once your laundry is done. That’s why scent boosters are a no-brainer if you’re craving an extra layer of fragrance.
Most store-brand scent boosters feature boring fragrances like “Spring Breeze” and “April Fresh.” But if you want a true sensory experience, snag a bottle of Laundry Sauce Advanced In-Wash Scent Booster, which comes in five premium fragrances:
2. Compatible with Any Washing Machine
Whether you have a front-loader, top-loader, or HE washers, you can use scent booster. Just make sure you add the beads to the drum of your washer before loading in your clothes.
3. Super Easy to Use
People online have concocted all sorts of DIY scent boosters that require you to blend essential oils, conditioners, and other ingredients just to get that extra scent. But with scent booster beads, all you have to do is sprinkle them into your washer and let them work their magic.
How to Use In-Wash Scent Booster Beads
It only takes a few seconds to level up your laundry day with scent boosters. Here’s how it’s done.
1. Decide How Much Scent Booster You Need
The amount of scent booster you should use depends on the size of your laundry load and how strong (or mild) of a scent you want. Here are some general tips:
- For a small load of laundry, start with 1/4 of a capful of scent beads (about 0.5 ounces)
- For larger loads, you may need ½ to a full cap
If your clothes don’t smell as strongly as you’d like, gradually increase the amount of scent booster you use next time.
2. Add the Scent Booster to Your Empty Washer
Once you’ve measured the right amount, shake the scent beads into the bottom of your empty washer in an even layer.
Never put scent booster in the dryer or in the dispenser drawers for detergent or fabric softener—the beads only belong in your washer drum.
Pro tip: Don’t overload your washer. Cramming your clothes into the drum with scent booster can make it harder for the beads to dissolve and release their fragrance.
3. Start Your Wash Cycle
After tossing your clothes into the washer, run your normal wash cycle and let the scent booster work its magic. When the cycle ends, your clothes will smell like pure luxury
