2 Ingredient Carpet Refresher (Budget Friendly)


Over the last two years I have been diving into the world of essential oils.  It was around the time I had given birth to our second daughter, and I wanted to reduce my use of cleaners with heavy fumes or toxins.

I'd spent a lot of time on Pinterest searching for DIY cleaning recipes and today I thought i'd take a moment to share two ways I've used essential oils on my carpets.

Both ways are simple, budget friendly and have been tested by me.

This first only requires a cotton ball, and a few drops of your favorite essential oils.


Supplies: 
  • Cotton Ball
  • Essential Oils 
    • I've used both lavender and orange 
Instructions: 
  • Put the EO's on a cotton ball
  • Vacuum the cotton ball 
  • Vacuum as per usual 
What to expect: 
As you vacuum, the essential oils leave a nice subtle hint. I liked to use the Orange when I would vacuum in the day time because it seemed to lift my spirits, and feel clean. I've also used the lavender when vacuuming bedrooms,  to give a calming fragrance. 


Now for the second method.


Supplies: 

  • Baking Soda 
  • Essential Oils
  • Empty Parmesan Cheese container
Instructions:
  • Fill empty container with baking soda
  • drop 8-10 drops of essential oils
    • give it a good shake to combine
  • sprinkle the mixture all over the carpets and let sit for a few minutes
  • vacuum as per usual
What to expect:
The baking soda and essential oils work together to eliminate and remove odors from your carpets. I like to use this method when potty training. I just sprinkle the mixture over the accident, place a towel over top and once the baking soda has soaked in all the urine, vacuum it away! 


These are just two quick, easy and kid friendly ways I use essential oils in my home.
