DIY Carpet Cleaning Tips

Making your own cleaners can be fun and affordable. This series is all about things you can make at home, have fun doing it and save money by not buying these things at the store.

The carpet freshener formula that I’m showing you today is my preferred homemade cleaning recipe due to the fact that it’s so easy and since it has a few usages besides carpet freshening.

Carpet Freshener

2 cups baking soda
10-20 drops essential oils
Container with a shaker top

Mix, put in container with a shaker top. Spray on carpet and let sit for 15 minutes to absorb smells and vacuum up.

Add baking soda to your container and include the necessary oils.

Utilize a table knife to stir in the essential oils to the baking soda

Use cardstock and a whole punch to make your own shaker top

Add a label and there you have it. Your have your own carpet freshener!

I save this mixture under the cooking area sink– it neutralizes cooking area smells and is easily all set for another usage that I’ll be back tomorrow to share!
