This is why you should put a cup of rice in your wardrobe
We love using rice in the kitchen when we’re making a nasi or a delicious curry. There are plenty of handy hacks outside of the kitchen involving rice as well, like drying your phone in rice after you’ve dropped it in water. In short; most people will have a bag of rice in their kitchen. Today, we’ve got another rice hack for you that’s all about your wardrobe!
We’re going to give this a try right away!
If you’re familiar with the trick of putting your smartphone in a bag of rice to save it from water damage, you’ll probably know this works because dry rice absorbs moisture. This is useful information because sometimes wardrobes can have trouble with moisture as well. Perhaps your home is simply a little damp, or you’ve put washed clothes back in the wardrobe even though they weren’t entirely dry yet. This moisture will cause your clothes to smell a little musty and of course you also just don’t want moisture and mould in your wardrobe!
Because rice absorbs the moisture from a room, it simultaneously works as an air freshener as well. By adding a few drops of essential oil to the rice, your wardrobe will start to smell lovely! There’s no need to buy expensive air fresheners or scented sachets; you can make this yourself very easily. And this way, you can also pick and choose what you like and find the perfect scent for you.
