We`re smack-dab in the middle of the holiday season!
which means it`s time for family and friends to gather under one roof to celebrate life and love, and it`s also time for the frantic pre-party housecleaning! First thing on the cleaning list: vacuum those carpets and rugs. Between pets, kids, and everyday messes, carpets tend to take a beating, and vacuuming alone won`t take care of odors you may not notice anymore. That`s where carpet deodorizing powders come in! Sprinkling a bit on carpets before vacuuming helps to not only remove unpleasant odors, but also release pleasant aromas that are a welcome greeting for your guests. But why overpay on carpet deodorizers that can possibly contain unwanted chemicals when you can make your own at home for a fraction of the price? Check out this easy DIY below to make your own carpet deodorizing powder, using only 2 ingredients!
What You`ll Need
In a small bowl, combine baking soda and essential oils. Mix together using a spoon.
Sprinkle over carpet evenly and let sit for about 1 hour before vacuuming.
That`s all it takes! We used our Purify Oil for its delightfully refreshing and clean scent, but any other oil would be great, too! Try lavender for a soothing scent or wintergreen for a holiday inspired aroma. Be sure to keep in mind that you will want to avoid using dark colored oils such as cinnamon on light carpets. Which oils did you use for your deodorizing powder? Did you blend any to create a unique scent? Share with us in the comments!
