Do It Yourself Carpet Fresh

I have talked a lot about all sorts of different DIY recipes for homemade cleaners using all natural products. We only use homemade cleaners now and I can't see us ever returning to any store bought brands any time soon.

This recipe is so simple and has 2...yes, 2 ingredients!

What I do is I keep my jars that have parmesan cheese in and use them for shakers. In that, I put in 2 cups of baking soda and about 10 drops of essential oils. You can use whatever kind you want, I prefer lemon or orange. Shake them up and voila, instant carpet fresh! I also like keeping a container under the sink and when I empty the garbages I shake a bit of that in the cans to keep them fresh! It works great and is so cheap.

What more can you ask for?


  1. I have heard that for those of us with no carpet...we can still use this...for mattresses!


    1. Yes, I have heard the same thing. I have never used it for that but I am sure it is great. I love it and it smells so good. What I am using now is lemon essential oil and it just has that fresh clean smell. :-)
