Homemade Carpet Freshener Powder with Borax

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).

Homemade Carpet Freshener Powder with Baking Soda

This homemade carpet freshener is another great example for just how handy baking soda is around the house, and how it’s certainly not just for baking.

Carpet gets dirty, that’s unavoidable.  Every day as we come home we bring a little bit of the outside world into our homes on the soles of our shoes.  Vacuuming will suck up all the dirt and grime that finds it’s way into carpet, but over time carpet can get smelly.  Having feet, house pets, and who knows what else on it will eventually leave your carpeting smelling a little less than fresh.

Never fear!  A good carpet freshening powder can work wonders deodorizing your carpet and leaving it smelling better than the day you bought it.  Here’s how to make your own diy carpet freshener powder.
