    You should never mix peroxide and vinegar. It states it in the post. Ppl please read the post before making the mix that's in the description.

    I still use this recipe only with hydrogen peroxide, dish detergent and water in a spray bottle. I keep a separate bottle of vinegar and water if I need something extra.

Carpet powders are great for eliminating odor and making your home smell nice. Some of them however, can be harmful to pets. For a more natural carpet powder, you can just make your own. Not that those store bought powders are really expensive, but if you have the ingredients at home then making your own brings on its own rewards.

Homemade Carpet Shampoo - revised the recipe as follows for use in regular size Rug Doctor: 2 Tbls. Baking Soda, 2 Tbls. Borax, 2/3 cup White Distilled Vinegar. Be sure to read my review in the comment section.

    Would this work on cat urine/spray that has gone un-noticed for a long time?

  • Kellie Lampman

    I have used for that very purpose. The Odormute took the smell away, BUT I had to do it a couple of times, and I put the powder directly on the area.

  • Melissa Shaw

    I don't have cats so I can't answer that, but borax is an odor nutrualizer.

    No pets..just kids

    I am going to try this hope it works. I use store bought carpet shampoo but it dose not seem to work well. My dog keeps going back to the same spots.
