Easy and All Natural Carpet Refresher

I HATE paying my hard earned money for items like carpet refresher. This recipe has TWO ingredients, is all natural with no toxic chemicals, and works AMAZINGLY well for pennies.
I buy giant bags of baking soda at Costco and use it for lots of my DIY products. Deodorant, bath soaks, dishwasher soap, tooth powder...you name it!
Purification essential oil is a blend of a few oils that work to kill germs and eliminate (not cover up) odors. I use it for my deodorant, to clean cuts and scrapes, to freshen laundry and as a bug repellent. It was the perfect choice to freshen up my rugs and carpets and get rid of any doggy odors and all the germs my kids track through here.
I just drip some oil into the baking soda and use a spoon to break up the pellets that form and get it blended well. Shake it on your carpets and let it sit for a few minutes before vacuuming up and your house will smell clean and fresh. Hop over to the blog post for the exact recipe and for a free printable label you can use for your own jar of carpet refresher!

    My great aunt used to use the generaic baby powder. She let it set over night and vaccum in the moring, but I bet this will be cheaper and work just as well if not better.

    That's great but I've been told that any powder will eventually destroy your vacuum cleaner

    I've tried this, and the oil on the carpet was not a good idea.

      @Cathy Jerome Knight I've used essential oil in Bi carb for years with no probs. You must tir the iol well into the soda and only use a few drops - not the whole bottle. PS Bi carb is cheaper than baking soda.
