Sometimes, breaking old cleaning habits in favor of new, healthier ones, is hard. If you’re looking for a nontoxic way to freshen up a smelly room, this carpet deodorizer is amazing! Best of all, it will cost you less than $1.

What you’ll need:

Combine all ingredients in the jar and shake heartily for several seconds. Let sit for a minute or two so that the baking soda can absorb the oils. Sprinkle the baking soda lightly over the carpet and let sit for 5-10 minutes, then vacuum it up. It smells amazing and will help keep common house pests away – bonus!
