OK, so you've used our 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, she 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
Make sure all your ingredients are combined, shake it out onto your carpet, vacuum, and voilà! A fantastic-smelling carpet day after day.
