Today’s blog post was inspired by a mandatory household task – vacuuming. Yesterday, I decided that the carpet on the stairs needed more than just a quick vacuum and ended up doing this simple DIY carpet deodorizer.
For this you will need a small bowl or container, baking soda and your favorite essential oil. A vacuum is also required. Yesterday, I chose to use lemon essential oil (Click here to purchase lemon essential oil from Amazon). If you try this DIY I would love to hear what essential oil(s) you use.
For every 1/4 cup of baking soda you will want between 10-20 drops of essential oil. Combine the two ingredients in your bowl or container stirring constantly as you add the essential oil. Be careful – you don’t want the scent to be overpowering or for the mixture to start clumping.
Sprinkle the mixture onto the carpet and wait at least one hour before vacuuming.
This mixture can also be used on mattresses and pet beds!
