    How does it smell in your sewing room?

    First of all, sorry if it's a dumb question

    Lately I realized, that my sewing room doesn't smell like it used to be. Everything is newly renovated. Everything is cleaned - the heater, furniture, floor, everything. It is not the fabric or other stuff, which could smell musty. Then I put on a Potpirie and now it smells softly like lavender. And I like it!

    And now, it's just a matter of interest: how does it smell your sewing room?

    I use the Febreze Set & Fresh thingies with the scent of Gain. It smells so clean and fresh and I don't have to worry having something spilled or plugged in!

    Mine smells like a linen closet to me. I light a candle when I sew and leave the closet (where my fabric is stored open) when I leave.

    I use a scentsy warmer and have lots of different scents. I find when ironing some of my really older fabric doesn't smell so fresh. Love my warmer.

    It smells like the pine forest I live in, with just a hint of daylilies wafting in the window. All natural, not from the grocery store.

    I dislike artificial scent. I open the windows when the weather permits.

    I never thought of this, but I am going to be adding a smell to mine. Lavender sounds good!!

    I have oodles of candles so I like to pop one in a warmer just because... but my favorite is having my windows open!

    I have been told of the possible fire hazard of the plug ins. I avoid those. My quilting room has no smell to it. I keep the room super clean and we don't have pets. I prefer music instead of scents to calm me or enjoy the environment. However, I would not be opposed to an apple pie sitting on the windowsill....

    LOL, I agree completely. I don't like artificial scents, don't have pets in the house, but sure would like some of that apple pie.
