Homemade Carpet Powder
To make your own carpet deodorizer using natural ingredients, combine equal parts of corn starch and baking soda in a medium sized bowl.
To give a wonderful scent and to add a sanitizer, add about a dozen drops of lavender oil or any other of your favorite scented oils. I have also mixed a couple oils. (You do not have to put the scent in, this is optional)
Mix well and place into a shaker container. You can use any shaker container or make your own by punching holes into the top of a small can w/a plastic lid. If you have two lids of the same size use one of the plastic lids to seal in the freshness. Once your deodorizer is complete sprinkle liberally on carpets and let set for an hour. Vacuum thoroughly.
***Note*** I use an old plastic carpet powder container for mine. And instead of mixing in a bowl I just add to the container and shake well.
***Optional*** I have also added borax powder to mine but that was not in the original recipe just something I tried and liked.
