Keep Your Cash: DIY Carpet Freshener

Homemade Carpet FreshenerCarpet is a lovely way to spruce up the look and feel of your home. While most of the focus tends to be on visual aesthetics of your floor décor, it is important not to forget about the scent your carpet may begin to develop over time. As various conditions are imposed upon your carpet, there is a chance that it may develop an odor. This is especially true of homes that have pets. Luckily, there are ways to counteract, and even protect against this from happening in your home.

Carpet fresheners are a popular way of eliminating obnoxious odors. Here is a quick and easy process on how to create your very own carpet powder deodorizer!

Homemade Carpet Freshener Recipe:

  • 2 cups of baking soda
  • 2 cups of lavender buds
  • 2 cups of rosemary
  • (Optional: essential oils of your desired fragrance)

Just mix the ingredients together, ensuring that they are thoroughly blended. Sprinkle the concoction on the affected areas of your carpet, and allow it to sit for about 5 – 10 minutes. After waiting, vacuum it up, and you’re all done! The entire area will smell new and fresh.

There are important benefits to using homemade alternatives to traditional carpet fresheners.

It’s Environmentally Friendly

Most commercial carpet powder fresheners are composed of chemical that can be harmful to the environment when thrown away. Also, some contents of commercial carpet fresheners can be harmful if ingested (in the case of pets/small children) or inhaled for extended periods.

It’s Cost-Efficient

Powder fresheners can be very expensive in comparison to DIY variants.

It Gives you Options

Buying fresheners from a store affords you a limited number of scent options. When preparing your own, the possibilities are limitless. A spicy cinnamon scent one week, a zesty orange scent the next!

These steps are amendable, and we encourage you to mix and match your own combination of ingredients. Find a mixture that suits your preference, and let the freshening commence!
