Homemade Carpet deodorizer

Well, this isn't really a craft, but it's definitely something you've GOT to try!

I used to love it when Mom used Arm and Hammer carpet deodorizer before vacuuming. It always made the house smell so clean! Come to find out, it's not too good for you to breathe in and it also clogs up any vacuum that has a bag.... That means no more carpet deodorizer :(

BUT... Then I found out that you can make your very own deodorizer from stuff we already had around the house... All you need is:

Baking soda (Enough to sprinkle over your carpet)
Essential oils (Add more drops to make it stronger)

Dat's it!
It really does work! Sprinkle that awesome stuff on the carpet and leave it on for about 15 minutes and then vacuum...
The smell lasted for about 3 days and with it just being baking soda, it dissipates in the vacuum bag. Oh happy day!

I can't wait to use all the different oils. Peppermint and cinnamon for Christmas... Lavender and jasmine for the springtime... The possibilities are endless! Try it out for yourself sometime when you're cleaning!
