When most of us see a clothespin we think of its primary use: hanging clothes to dry. And yet there’s a secondary use that turns these unassuming little gadgets into devices capable of giving your bathroom a refreshing lift.

It turns out there’s actually a very good reason for you to clip a clothespin on your shower head when you’re taking a shower. In fact, if you ever happen to find a clothespin there, then you should probably pay homage to your partner’s creativity.

Get yourself a wooden clothespin and a bottle of essential oil such as eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint etc. Take your clothespin and soak it in your essential oil of choice, before clipping it onto your shower head or shower curtain.

Lastly, simply turn on your shower as you normally would. The resulting steam should disperse whichever scent you’ve doused your clothespin in, effectively creating a homemade fragrance emitter sure to make your shower experience all the more luxurious.
