Homemade Carpet Powder. I think I'm going to try this! Some comments mentioned If you add a cup of borax to this mixture it will kill any bugs that may be in your carpet! (fleas, etc!)Another said:I use nutmeg or clove ground with baking soda, and everyone can't find why my house smells so inviting and homey

Great for cleaning mattresses or carpet stains. Mix 8oz peroxide, 3 TBSP baking soda, and a drop of dish soap in a spray bottle. Shake vigorously. Spray stain and allow to dry. That's it! Magic!

Wedding-day white teeth! My dentist actually told me about this. Use a little toothpaste, mix in one teaspoon baking soda plus one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide, half a teaspoon water. Thoroughly mix then brush your teeth for two minutes. Remember to do it once a week until you have reached the results you want. Once your teeth are good and white, limit yourself to using the whitening treatment once every month or two.

Homemade drawer and car fresheners. Made these for my upcoming move to put it boxes that are going into storage to keeps linens and clothing smelling fresh. Dollar store wedding favour bags and Downey unstoppable scent beads.

I just tried this and it works and my carpet smells fresh and clean! So much cheaper than store bought stuff! The Retro-Modern Mom: Homemade Carpet Shampoo

She says the warm baking soda seems to literally pull the odors from the air (Optional, add essential oils)
