Lavender Dryer Bags

Lavender Dryer Bags

Lavender dryer bags are a natural way to freshen laundry. They are made simply from lavender scooped into small drawstring muslin bags like these. These bags are typically sold as bouquet garni bags, for adding herbs to soups, stocks, or stews.

When you have filled the bag with lavender, tie it tightly in a few knots and then wrap the string around the top and tie again. This will ensure that it will not come apart in the dryer. Toss a bag in with the laundry to add a light fragrance. Each dryer bag will last for ten loads in the dryer.


Lavender dryer bags will also make a great Handmade Holiday Gift! Present a set of 6  bags in a vintage jar wrapped with ribbon. The sealed jar will help keep the bags fresh.

    What a great idea! I have these bags and lavender but I never thought to put them in the dryer. I am going to try it. I usually just leave them in my drawers. My grandmother made little lavender sachets edged in lace. So lavender is a good memory for me.

    What a great idea! This is a silly question, but where did you buy the lavender?

    Super cool but what kind of lavender do you use? Fresh, the kind in the bath aisle?

    I loved the idea and just got the bags. I have fresh lavender in my garden. Do I use only the flowers to fill the bags or do I use the leaves also. Do I use fresh lavender of dried? Thank you!!

    I LOVE this idea! How much lavender did you use per bag, and/or, what size bag did you use? The bags your linked are 4×6 which seems quite large considering the amount of lavender flowers you would need to fill as pictured. Thank you!

      Hi Stacey! yes, those are the bags I used although you can also get 3×5 ones. I just fill them up but I have a LOT of lavender growing in my garden and I harvest more than I can use every year.
