Homemade Carpet Deodorizer

Standard

Rory had the typical toddler reaction to having a sister–she reverted back to having potty accidents. ALL THE TIME. ALL OVER HER FLOOR. Needless to say I’m not ready to pay to shampoo them because I’m not yet sure she’s finished with the accidents but I needed something to make her room no longer smell like a urinal. Using three of my favorite ingredients I hit the mother load of deodorizers and I owe it all to yet another Pinterest find.

Homemade Carpet Deodorizer

1/2c Borax
1/2c Baking Soda
20-25 Drops of your favorite essential oil OR 1tsp. Ground Spices

Mix it all together, pour into a shaker or some sorts (an empty Parmesan Cheese shaker is perfect). Sprinkle onto the carpet and let it sit for 20 minutes before you vacuum up. I used lemongrass (one of my favs) and it smells so clean and fresh upstairs. I’m seriously in love with how easy this is and how clean it all smells.
