To create a clean, natural carpet deodorizer, combine the following:


1 cup of baking soda
5-6 drops of essential oil

Orange or lavender oil are good choices for this. Mix the baking soda and oil well; then add to a shaker - we recycled a GloryBee honey jar with small holes drilled in the top.

Sprinkle all over your carpets and let sit for 15 minutes. The baking soda will absorb odors and the oil will freshen and deodorize your carpets. Vacuum as usual.
