DIY Carpet Powder Cleaner is a simple and frugal way to deodorize your carpets and rugs.  It contains only 2 ingredients!

Carpet can make a room comfortable and homey, but it can be difficult to keep clean.  Especially if you have pets and kids.  Getting out urine odor from pets can be a big challenge.

Those commercial carpet powder cleaners are expensive and contain synthetic fragrance and mystery chemicals that aren't healthy, especially for young children who tend to spend a lot of time on the floors. 

This simple homemade carpet powder cleaner utilizes the deodorizing and cleansing power of doTERRA Purify Cleansing Blend to help clean carpets and get rid of funky smells.  And since it is homemade with only 2 ingredients, you are saving a ton of money!  

Use this carpet powder cleaner regularly to keep your carpets fresh, especially for you mama's with crawling toddlers.  You can feel confident that your carpet is clean and your kids aren't crawling around on chemicals left by those commercial carpet powders like Glade and Febreeze.

  1. Add your essential oil to the baking soda and stir until well combined.

I found some really cute mason jar lids that will work perfectly for this.  They have holes in the top which makes it easy to sprinkle the powder on the carpet without making a huge mess, and they store easily too. Click on the Amazon link below to see them.*
