Baking soda is great for lifting dirt from the carpet and dealing with stale odours (especially if you have pets). The lavender oil in this recipe gives the carpet a pleasant fragrance, plus it is anti-bacterial.
To make this you will need:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 5 drops lavender essential oil (if you don't like lavender try lemon or sweet orange)
- shaker (a flour shaker works well)
Mix the baking soda and lavender oil so that there are no lumps.
Shake over the carpet. Leave for 10-15 minutes, then vacuum as normal.
