{31 Day of Challenges- Day 28} Make Your own Carpet Fresh

I have one dog(German Shepard) and let me tell you she can be stinky especially when its raining or snowing outside. She comes in wet and it smells especially on the carpets. 

 Carpet powder is one thing that is a must have in my cleaning closet. They can be expensive but sometimes the smell does not last even if you leave it on the carpets for 2 hours.

Use a empty Parmesan cheese container, or some other shaker like carpet powder container you last used.

What you will need:
Empty container or some other shaker
Baking soda*
Essential oils*

* If your machine get clogged to easily then you can use epsom salt with the essential oils
* If you don't like using the oils then you can replace with ground spices like ground clove or nutmeg
* You can add a few teaspoons of Borax to repel flies from the carpets 

1/2 Cup of Baking Soda and 20-25 drops of essentials oils (or 1-2 teaspoons of spices) into a container. Mix it well. Pour into the shaker. Sprinkle it over the carpet and leave it for 20 minutes. You could leave it up to 2 hours for more traffic areas.

I rate this 10 out of 10. It really works and last for a few days. I love it!

Thanks for stopping by and love for you share it!
