Carpet Deodorizer

IMG_1122

We have a dog, a cat, and a child.  Our carpets take a beating!  About every 2 weeks I like to freshen up the carpets by using a pet and child safe deodorizer.  It is super easy to make and I can switch up the scent based on how I feel that day. 

Here is how you make it:

1 cup baking soda

5 drops of tea tree oil

10 drop of an essential oil of your choosing (I’m on an orange kick!)

Mix together and put into a shaker (I bought mine from the dollar store).  Sprinkle over your carpets and let sit for a few minutes.  Vacuum it up and enjoy how fresh your house feels! 

This will last you between 1-3 applications based upon how large your house is.  It also works great on area/entry rugs.
