An Easy DIY Trick to Make Your Underwear Smell Better: Scented Drawer Liners

Has anyone ever told you that you have stinky drawers? Hope not! That being said, adding lightly scented paper to the inside of your bureau can cover up a new (or old) furniture odor and make your clothes smell nice, too. But instead of buying scented liners, which tend to be overpriced and often too small for real drawers, you should make your own. It’s super-easy!

DIY Scented Drawer Liner

  • scissors
  • thick wrapping paper or scrap wallpaper
  • ½ cup water
  • essential oils (like lavender, rose, or cedarwood)
  • spray bottle
  • ruler


  • Cut your paper to the approximate dimensions of your drawer, with about an inch of wiggle room all around.
  • Mix the water and 20-30 drops of essential oils together in a small spray bottle.
  • Flip your paper over and lightly spritz the back all over with the mixture, being careful not to saturate the paper. Let dry and repeat as desired.
  • Measure your drawer dimensions and cut your paper to fit exactly. Insert into drawer.
  • Refresh the paper periodically by taking it out and spritzing the back again.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
