Casa Quickie: Herbal Carpet Cleaning

If your house is smelling a little stale due to dry Winter air, try this tip. To make your whole house smell amazing, sprinkle dried lavender on your carpet before vacuuming. When you vacuum your carpets, the lavender scent will spread throughout your entire home. This is an especially good tip for anyone who lives with pets, since the lavender scent counteracts any dog- or cat-related smells in the house.

I do that and then my kitties come, smell it and start rubbing their little bodies on the carpets probably saying in their mind "om my goodness, mom got rid of our smell, fast, fast, put it back"! :-P :true:

Speaking of pets, this is also a good option for those with pet birds. Most commercially available carpet, fabric and air fresheners contain nasty fragrance oils that can kill birds almost instantly so natural solutions like lavender or lemongrass are the only way to go.
