      Homemade carpet powder - love this non-toxic and homemade cleaner option. Especially with the cats, I like to use non-toxic ingredients if they're near it!

      Read the reviews and noted that baking soda is bad for your vacuum filter, so I used cornmeal and added some borax, nutmeg, and the orange oil. Left it on the carpet for at least 30 minuets. Didn't really make the house smell all that great, but the carpet smelled good when I got on the floor playing with my kids.
