OK, so you've used my DIY advice to clean the carpet but how do you keep it smelling fresh day after day? A pal tipped me off to this — she doesn't even have a pet, just likes some good, green fun — and, since it's all natural, there's no reason why a fur-filled, carpeted home couldn't try this, too!
To make a lasting batch, grab a metal or glass container with a perforated top (like this one that closes) and add:
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 16 drops of your favorite, pet safe essential oil
To make in smaller proportions even more eco-tastically, wash and reuse an empty, old spice container and mix 1/8 cup baking soda with 1/8 cup cornstarch and then add 4–5 drops of essential oil afterwards.
