CARPET CLEANER & DEODORIZER using natural essential oils

by Penny Keay

Using essential oils for deodorizing your carpeting or rugs will give them a nice fresh scent, unlike commercial deodorizers.

In certain areas of the country with HIGH Humidity or with warm temperatures that we see in the summer, all our carpets might develop an unpleasant odor. If you don't have time to shampoo and clean them properly you can do a quick deodorizing by adding a few drops of essential oil to baking soda or borax, then sprinkle on the carpeting about 15 minutes prior to vacuuming.

Good oils to try include:

Lemon, Clary Sage, Geranium, Bergamot, Lavender, Grapefruit and Lime.

I personally like any of the Pine needle and Spruce needle scents especially in the winter months. For a change of pace; Fennel or Anise are fun too. Some people prefer the mint scents. So you might add Peppermint or Spearmint.

Deodorizing the carpeting is easy to do with essential oils and you can have fun experimenting until you find the oil or blends of oils you feel give you the freshest smells.

Remember all essential oils have antibacterial, anti fungal, anti microbial and antiseptic properties to varying degrees. If the odors are coming from any of these sources, the oils will help destroy the odor causing germs too.

Carpet Cleaning and Deodorizer

6 Tablespoon Borax
3 drops Lemon
1 drop Clary Sage
5 drops Lavender
1 drop Grapefruit

Mix all ingredients and sprinkle on carpet. Let sit for a minumum of 5 to 10 minutes and then vacuum thoroughly.
