Carpet can hold onto odors and leave your home smelling less than fresh. There are many carpet cleaning and freshening products out there but they often contain harmful chemicals like synthetic fragrance. Making your own is a cheap and safe alternative. This is my favorite version for fall.
- 2 cups of baking soda
- 10 drops or so of cinnamon essential oil
- 20 drops or so of orange essential oil
- 1 organic bay leaf
- 1 glass jar with metal lid with holes
- 1 metal with no holes
Pour baking soda into jar, add essential oils, and shake well. Add bay leaf and close jar. When not using keep the lid without the holes on the jar to maintain the scent. To use simple sprinkle over the carpet, allow to sit for 15 minutes- 1 hour, and vacuum normally.
Tip: Use more or less of the essential oils to fit your tastes.
