Make your own
Herbal Carpet Freshener Recipe
Do your carpets
need a bit of freshening up without wanting to do the whole
steam cleaner process? Make your own herbal carpet freshener
to keep your carpets smelling fresh. Great for houses with
6 cups baking soda
3 cups dried lavender, crushed
1 cup cornstarch
and store in an airtight container. Allow to sit for for 2-3
days prior to first use, to allow the lavender to infuse into
the baking soda and cornstarch.
To use, simply
sprinkle on carpets, wait for an hour, and then vacuum it
up. If the carpets are really bad, sprinkle freshener before
you go to bed, then vacuum first thing in the morning.
