How To Deodorize Carpet With Baking Soda
A dirty rug not only looks bad, but it doesn't smell good either. Using harsh chemicals to remove stains and odors isn't good for the environment and can be irritating to your eyes and respiratory system. Follow these easy steps to find out how to clean your carpet the inexpensive and eco-friendly way.
Step 1: You will need
- baking soda
- vacuum cleaner
Step 2: Remove The Dirt
The bottom of your shoes contains oil and dirt and the constant contact with your carpet can grind away the surface of your carpet and leave dirt deep in the fibers. Vacuum your carpet to pick up any of the big particles of dirt or loose fibers.
Step 3: Sprinkled Soda
Liberally sprinkle baking soda all over your carpet and let it sit for several hours. Baking soda naturally neutralizes and absorbs odors rather than covering them up.
Step 4: Odor Be Gone
The longer you let baking soda sit on the carpet, the better it will neutralize odors. After several hours, vacuum up the baking soda and your carpet will be odor and chemical free.
