HOMEMADE GREEN CARPET POWDER
1. Put baking soda in a repurposed container with holes drilled in lid. (I used an old peanut butter jar and tried to punch holes with a nail, but it just cracked the plastic. Hubby suggested trying a drill next time.) A cheese shaker would work as well.
2. Sprinkle a few drops of essential oil and mix well with a fork to remove any clumps. I used orange and eucalyptus.
3. Sprinkle on your carpets and let sit for anywhere from 15 minutes to overnight if you don't mind the powder everywhere, then vacuum. Or in my case let your Roomba loose. (I love my Roomba! I tell him all the time so he feels appreciated. And yes, my Roomba is a he.)
This powder doesn't just need to be used on carpets Sprinkle anywhere that needs a scrubbing - sink, counters, fridge...skip on those nasty chemical cleaners!
