I have some bottles of Weleda Deodorant I no longer use because I find I don't really need deodorant. I love the smell though. Can I use it like febreze? To clean a mirror? Other ideas?

The ingredients are - Grain Alcohol (Ethanol), Distilled Water, Lemon Juice, Vegetable Glycerin Oil, Essential Oils.Alcohol, Water (Aqua), Fragrance (Parfum)*, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon), Limonene*, Linalool*, Geraniol*, Citral*, Farnesol*.
* from natural essential oils

Best answer: I use mine more like a perfume or body spray, as I find it doesn't work very well as a deodorant for me. I was thinking of decanting it into a pretty bottle too, and then spritzing when I feel like it.

Spray a cloth with it and store it in your underwear drawer, so everything in there gets lightly scented? Refresh said cloth weekly.

Pretty expensive stuff, it seems Amazon is showing a 3.4 oz bottle going for $14 for the sage "flavor".

If you just like the smell, you can either dilute it or distill it. It's supposed to be 12h or 24h lasting... Hmmm.

Best answer: If you are considering spraying it on fabric (e.g. bed sheets), I'd suggest spraying a small piece of that fabric, waiting, and then washing, just in case the oils in there leave a hard-to-remove stain.

Best answer: Deodorize/disinfect your shoes (bowling alley style).
