Make your own Natural Carpet Deodorizing Powder. 3 simple ingredients. I used orange essential oil and Cinnamon spice. My house smells fantastic!
Update: this was really simple to make but it doesn't make a lot. A double batch will fill an empty plastic Parmesan bottle but it takes like three batches just to do my 5 rugs. I added Cinnamon since it's what I had on hand and it's Christmas but I'd like to try the essential oil next time. I like the Borax in this one since it helps control fleas, don't let animals get in Borax; ITS TOXIC! Homemade Carpet Cleaner!.. even though my boyfriends a carpet cleaner :D
Make your own Natural Carpet Deodorizing Powder. This sorta worked. My carpet may need a second application, but only time will tell. But if after two times the smell is gone I will be impressed, because it will have done what professional carpet cleaners and Lysol were unable to do.
