Maintenance Monday – carpet refresher

Make Your Own All-Natural Carpet Refresher

To keep our place smelling fresh, we like to employ carpet refresher. We used to buy the commercial stuff in powder form, but found out that it can contain chemicals that aren’t good for the environment. Here are a few recipes for homemade, all-natural carpet refresher.

Baking soda is an ever-popular deodorizer. Crush up a handful of dry lavender and mix with a cup of baking soda, and sprinkle that over your carpet. If you’d like to use essential oils, mix a few drops of your favorite(s) in with baking soda (not enough to make it wet), and then break up any clumps and sprinkle that over your carpet.

For a carpet mist, fill a spray bottle with water and a few drops of essential oil. This can be used to freshen your carpet and upholstery.

Feeling fresher already, aren’t you?
