Homemade Carpet Deodorizer and Fabric Freshener


  • 1 c baking soda
  • 25-75 drops of lavender or lemongrass essential oil*


  1. Cut out a few small holes in the top of a container (I got my husband to do this with a drill). You could use a mason jar with a lid.
  2. Add the baking soda.
  3. Pour in the essential oils and shake (or cut in with a knife).
  4. Sprinkle your fabrics and leave for a time (at least a few minutes).
  5. Vacuum the fabric and enjoy the beautiful smelling scents of the essential oils.

Recipe Notes

*This is my favorite brand of essential oils - they are inexpensive, they smell amazing and, most importantly, they are organic. These essential oils will also help to eliminate odors.
