You could try making ironing water. You just use 3 cups of distilled water, 3 ounces of ethyl alcohol (you can substitute vodka for this!) and 15-30 drops of favorite essential oil. Lavender, jasmine and bergamot are all lovely. Mix ingredients into a spritzer bottle and shake well before using. Just mist clean laundry as you iron. You can also use this as a room fresher or to spray on your bedlinens, curtains, area rugs or sofas (think homemeade Febreze, really). A friend of mine also suggests using spearmint essential oil in the mix and using it to cool yourself off on hot days by dabbing the back of your neck, knees and temples.
