      Carpet Cleaning Secrets - Dry Cleaning: In a container with a lid, mix together equal parts cornstarch and baking soda. Add some spices or fragrant dried leaves such as cinnamon, cloves & lavender. Mix thoroughly. The baking soda deodorizes and helps pull the dirt from the carpet fibers, while the spices and leaves fill your carpet and surrounding areas with a pleasant aroma. Liberally sprinkle the powder over the entire carpet. After 30 min. have passed, remove the powder with your vacuum
