Reed diffusers are an attractive way to scent your home. Convenient kits come with everything you need to assemble your own reed diffuser. But what happens when the scented oil is gone? You can easily refill reed diffusers in a few simple steps.
Things You'll Need
- Scented oil
- New reeds
- Dish soap
Throw away the old reeds. You can attempt to wash the scent from the reeds, but you will most likely be unsuccessful. You can purchase new reeds for your reed diffuser inexpensively at many home stores.
Wash the bottle thoroughly with dish soap and hot water until the scent is removed. You might have to wash the bottle several times to remove the scent. Porous reed diffuser bottles might require soaking.
Wash any rocks or other decorative items that were in the reed diffuser bottle in the same manner. If the scent cannot be removed, replace the items.
Add new scented oil and reeds to the bottle. You can purchase scented oil to refill your reed diffuser from many home stores. Purchase a large bottle so you can add more oil later when the level is low.
Tips & Warnings
- Purchase a large bottle of scented oil for your reed diffuser so you can add more of the same scent later. This eliminates the need for new reeds and washing when the oil level is low.
- Failure to wash your reed diffuser bottle will cause a mixture of the new and old scent. This is often undesirable, but you might get lucky and create a pleasant new scent.
