Natural DIY CARPET DEODORIZER

Ingredients:

  • Baking Soda
  • 20-40 drops Essential Oil*

Mix 1/2 cup baking soda and 20-40 drops essential oil of your choice. Allow to sit overnight so the essential oil can permeate the baking soda. Sprinkle lightly over carpets and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Vacuum as usual.
