I’ve already made one homemade carpet freshener on The Homemade Experiment, but I’ve also seen this other recipe around the internet so I wanted to try it out. The only difference between the two is that this recipe also uses borax powder. I am completely happy with the other carpet powder recipe, but I want to include this one for the sake of variety and comparison. As of now I can’t say if one is better than the other, but I can say that they have both worked for me.
This is a good homemade natural solution for freshening up the carpeting in you home without much work, or having to cover your carpeting with chemicals that may or may not be left behind by your vacuum cleaner. This powder works equally well on rugs, just be a little more careful so you don’t suck your rug into your vacuum cleaner (trust me, I’ve learned this from experience).
