Natural Carpet Deodorizer

Posted on September 27, 2007 by Allie


Looking for a natural way to get your carpet smelling fresh? When you think of all the time your kids and pets spend in close contact with the carpet, chemical laden carpet deodorizers aren’t an option. Sprinkle a light layer of baking soda over the carpet before vacuuming. It’ll absorb odors naturally, without the use of nasty chemicals.

Before using any powdered carpet deodorizer, test in an inconspicuous spot to make sure that your vacuum cleaner is strong enough to pick up the powder.

If you have area rugs instead of carpet, and your vacuum isn’t strong enough, you can save the deorizing step for a time when you can pull the rugs outside and beat the excess powder out.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
