DIY Carpet and Car Deodorizer
Home & Garden
You take baking soda and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil or you can use cooking vanilla or cinnamon straight from your spice rack if you don’t have any oils on hand. I really like Peppermint, Rosemary, Lavender or Lemon myself. I find Peppermint has a very pronounced fragrance and citrus or lavender can be more subtle.
You can also get one of these little sprinkle jars from Target or Walmart for about $1.00. Those make it a bit easier to sprinkle around the house. You can find jars at the Dollar Store that are intended for powdered sugar and those work perfectly or just take a Mason Jar and use a piece of cardstock to replace the inside circle for the lid. Puncture a few holes and that will work!
Fill it with baking soda and then add about 10 drops of fragrance and shake well.
Sprinkle this like crazy throughout the house- about an hour before you want to vacuum. Sometimes I will sprinkle this in the morning before work and then vacuum when I get home- it is especially nice to give the fragrance a chance to take hold in the closets and such.
You can also use this in the car before you vacuum- I sprinkle it everywhere in the car. On our children’s carseats, the upholstery, the carpet etc…
Oh and if you happen to have stinky shoes inside the closet- well sprinkle right inside those too and the baking soda will neutralize the odor and absorb any moisture. Once you are ready to vacuum just tip the shoes over so any excess falls out onto the carpet and you can vacuum it right up!
