In a bowl, add droplets of the essential oils to the baking soda. Make sure to disperse the drops to the baking soda evenly.
2. Stir Well
Using a plastic spoon, blend the mixture well. Make sure to break up all of the clumps.
Store the lavender mixture in a glass airtight container.
4. Spread Lavender Mixture Over Surface and Vacuum
Shake the lavender mixture lightly and spread it over the entire surface of your carpets and rugs. Leave it for at least 15 minutes up to a day, then vacuum.
Personalize Your Rug & Carpet Freshener
Change things up a bit by blending your rug & carpet freshener with lemon, orange, peppermint, or tea tree. Any essential oil of your choice will do! Start by adding just a few drops and modify until you are happy with the mixture.
The lavender freshener is an effective cleaner for your carpets and rugs since baking soda absorbs moisture, odors, and oils. Plus, it helps loosen dirt. Meanwhile, lavender oil has antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic, and antiviral properties that can take care of any germs that may be in your carpets and rugs.
