Should I open my scented sachet? In a word, no. Opening a sachet adversely affects its lifetime and makes a bit of a mess. Here are some better ways to use a sachet..
In a word, no. Opening a sachet will result in a bit of a mess. The fragrance oil will be exposed to different surfaces that it’s not meant to interact with, and this can result in discoloration or damage to that surface, which we always want to avoid. Look on the back of your sachet for more information about surfaces that your sachet should not come in contact with.
Why not open a scented sachet?
One of the best features of a scented sachet is its long life. We promise that you’ll enjoy up to 9 months of fragrance from your sachet after the Julian date on the back of the package, but depending on the amount of air flow and the temperature where you store your sachet, they can last much longer. Opening a Fresh Scent sachet means the fragrance is dispersed, and you won’t be able to enjoy it as long.
In the past, opening a Fresh Scents sachet, pouring the ingredients on carpet, and then vacuuming it up was popular, so this is definitely a valid question for the daily scented sachet user. Vacuuming up the contents of the scented sachet works well with bag vacuums, but it doesn't have the same fragrance effect with vacuums that use filters. For this reason, we recommend keeping your scented sachets sealed and placing them in an area with good air flow to enjoy the maximum level of fragrance. Rather than emptying the contents, just shake your sachet to activate the fragrance!
