A Reed diffuser is a wonderful way to achieve a fragrant home without worrying about open flame candles or harsh air fresheners. Not only do they look great, but they are also long-lasting and easy to use. However, without proper maintenance and care, it may not retain its scent for as long as it should. So, here are a few tips to maintain and reuse your Reed Diffuser
1. Choose the Right Spot
The location of your Reed Diffuser
is an essential part of maintaining its scent. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, near heaters or vents, and in high traffic areas. Doing so will cause the oil to evaporate quickly, reducing the diffuser's lifespan.
2. Rotate the Reeds
By regularly rotating the reeds or sticks of the Reed diffuser every two to three days, you can ensure the scent remains potent. Simply remove the old reeds, flip them, and insert them back into the bottle. This will help spread the fragrance effectively throughout the room.
3. Refill the Bottle
Once the scent has faded or evaporated, it's time to refill the bottle with fresh diffuser oil. Just purchase a new refill, and follow the instructions for filling the existing bottle. You can also mix and match different oils to create a personalised scent. Check out our range of refills here.
4. Clean the Bottle
Cleaning the Reed diffuser bottle is as important as any other maintenance task. It may take a little extra effort, but it's worth it to maintain the longevity of the diffuser. Start by rinsing the bottle with hot water and soap, then dry it thoroughly. If necessary and depending on the diffuser bottle's material, you can also use alcohol to sanitise it.
5. Reuse the Bottle
If you're up for a DIY project, consider reusing your Reed diffuser bottle for other purposes. These bottles make great vases
for small flowers, pen holders, or even small planters for succulents. Get creative, and give your bottle a new purpose.
In conclusion, Reed diffusers are an easy and convenient way to enhance the fragrance of your home. However, they need to be cared for and maintained correctly to keep them functioning correctly. By following these simple tips, you can extend and maintain the life of your Reed diffuser, ensuring it remains a cherished item in your home. Shop our reed diffuser range here
