Simple linen spray?

I'd like to make a simple linen spray to sell but I'd prefer not to use cyclo or polysorbates or preservatives. Am I mad? Should I just give it up now?

I have a bunch of perfumer's grade denatured alcohol. Is it ok to mix this with distilled water? I don't like the smell of it at all, but I understand it evaporates pretty quickly.

Would it be ok to make it and sell it if it's made with vodka or everclear? I find their odors are a lot easier on my nose. If using vodka, can I dilute it with water or do I need to use it straight?

Thanks in advance!

I've never used the perfumer's alcohol, but I think I read somewhere that it takes about a week for the alcohol smell to lessen a bit. I don't see why you couldn't dilute it with water? Check Snowdrift farms.. I do believe they have info and recipes on their site about the perfumers alcohol.

Thanks! I had heard of Snowdrift here on the forum, but never went since I didn't plan on ordering from them (I'm in Australia). But I found their information on sprays very informative. Great site!

I ended up testing straight perfumer's alcohol with some Lavender EO, and although I couldn't smell the alcohol after a spray, hubby said he could still pick it up. I'll see how it smells after a week.
