Homemade Carpet Powder– Carpet odors can be tricky. No matter how deeply you clean everything around it, from dusting to mopping to vacuuming to lighting candles and spraying fragrances, an odor trapped within a rug can make all of your hard work obsolete. That musty smell will seep out and soon take over the clean smell you worked so hard to achieve.
Don’t fret- I’ve got a homemade recipe just for you. One that will neutralize those icky odors and make cleaning worth the efforts. AND- it’s a breeze to use. You can customize the scent by choosing your preferred essential oils and spices so that your home smells exactly how you want it to and it only has a few ingredients – many of which you probably already have in your home!
