Ever since practice for The Boys Next Door started and my hubby started studying for the CPA, cleaning our house sorta got put on the back burner. I mean we tried to keep up with it the best we could but there’s only so much you can do when you’re gone/studying every night and busy on the weekends as well.
So now that the play is done, I’m working on giving our house a good clean, room by room. Its been going slowly but last night I finally finished cleaning our master bedroom (minus one crate of random things that don’t belong in our bedroom). To help give our bedroom that super clean feeling/smell, I made up some natural carpet deodorizer.
Once everything else was put up and I was ready to vacuum our carpet, I sprinkled my carpet deodorizer all over our carpet, let it sit for 5 to 6 minutes, and then vacuumed it up. Wow!, did it make our room smell amazing! I can’t wait to get the rest of our house cleaned and organized. Hopefully I can get it all done before we leave for Colorado next week. Fingers crossed!
Here’s my easy recipe for my natural carpet deodorizer.
- Baking Soda
- Essential Oils (I used lemon, peppermint, and lavender)
- Shaker Bottle (I used a old Parmesan cheese bottle that we had just finished off)
- Washi Tape or some kind of label
- First I took and cleaned out my Parmesan bottle and took the label off.
- Then I filled my bottle up with baking soda.
- Once my bottle was full of baking soda, I add in around 30 or so drops of my essential oils. I chose to use lemon, lavender, and peppermint. I chose these three since they are good for helping with your allergies and with my hubby and I both suffering from them right now, I figured why not kill two birds with on stone. But you can use whatever essential oils you’d like.
- After I had all of my essentials oils added, I put the lid back on my bottle and shook everything together.
- Then I labeled my bottle so I my hubby and I would know what was in the bottle. Since I couldn’t find my chalkboard labels, I used some washi tape.
- Once I was all done, I shook my carpet deodorizer all over my carpet, let it sit for 5 or so minutes, and then vacuumed it all up.
And there you have it, a simple to make, all natural carpet deodorizer that will cost you little to no money at all to make.
