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 dogs!

6 cups baking soda (buy bulk!)
3 cups dried lavender, crushed
1 cup cornstarch

Combine ingredients 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.
