    Our Labrador sheds hair like nothing on earth - apparently labs are the worst shedders! The carpets do tend to smell 'doggy' where she lays on them - especially if she has been out in the rain - lovely smell of 'wet dog'! I use a store bought lavender carpet fresh but hubby does not like the smell. I think I will embrace this idea and go the nutmeg! Thanks for posting!

    I made a similar one with borax, washing soda and essential oils on my basement carpet which smelled musty for a quite while. I let it sit most of the day, vacuumed and reapplied, leaving it for about 3 hours. 1 year later it still smells clean...I will be reapplying it soon. It has really helped with allergies. I also make a spray with vinegar, rubbing alcohol and essential oils, and use it on my basement sofa and carpet for a quick Febreze-type refresher. It works great.
