HOMEMADE Carpet Freshener

I am SOLD on this very easy way to keep one's carpet smelling fresh. Not to mention the added benefits of using a more natural and healthier alternative.
We have 3 dogs and you can only imagine how hard it is to keep one's carpet clean and fresh smelling on a day by day basis.


Equal portion of BORAX and BAKING SODA.
Add your favorite essential oil for scent, or you can just use plain borax/baking soda.
My personal recipe consists of 1 cup of borax and 1 cup of baking soda added to mason jar (I punctured lid with nail.)
 For each batch, I added 30 drops of Lavender oil and shook vigorously.
SPRINKLE generously and evenly over carpet and allow to stay until vacuumed.
The added benefit of Borax is that it is a natural pesticide!
