Do you ever stay up at night thinking about how to get that funky winter smell out of your carpets? NO?
Well, that’s great!!
But just in case you’re curious, here is a super simple and effective way to bring freshness to any carpeted area in your home.
1 cup baking soda
1 cup diatomaceous earth (can be found at garden centers)
A combination of 25-30 drops of 3 of your favorite essential oils. Here’s a suggestion:
10 drops Lemon (Citrus limon)
10 drops Wild Orange (Citrus sinensis)
5 drops Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
Simply combine all ingredients in a glass jar or shaker (adding the oils last, stirring as it drips). Sprinkle onto your carpets and let sit for 15-30 minutes before vacuuming.
It may go without saying, but be sure to open up all your windows on a sunny day for extra freshness and purification of your home!
