Odors can easily become trapped in carpets and rugs. Make your own deodorizing carpet powder with two ingredients, and remove food, pet and household odors from your carpet with ease! Just sprinkle this homemade carpet deodorizer on carpets and rugs, then vacuum away the stink!
We love our pets, truly we do, but let’s face it…they can stink! I have lived in fear that our home smells like animals for years, and am constantly doing whatever I can to keep that from being true. Previously, I shared my Homemade Fabric Refresher Spray Recipe with you, and today I want to share how to make your own deodorizing carpet powder sprinkle with just 2 ingredients! It will have your carpet and rugs smelling fresh in no time!
You will need an clean, empty mason jar, 1 1/2 cups of baking soda and 10 drops of essential oils…I prefer lavender!
First, use a nail to poke holes in the lid of your mason jar. I use these shakers for everything! You can see the how to on my Mason Jar Cinnamon – Sugar Shakers by clicking the Crafts button in the menu bar at the top of my site :)
Now that you have your shaker ready, add your baking soda to a large bowl.
Next, add your essential oils.
Mix well with a whisk or spoon, making sure to get all lumps mixed in. Pour the mixture into your homemade mason jar shaker.
Now, sprinkle your carpet and wait for 20 – 30 minutes.
Vacuum and enjoy the smell of clean!
