Whether you have have to love to be on the carpet, or you have kids or family members tromping dirt through the house, it is quite common to have to deal with smelly carpets. Unfortunately most people don’t want to deal with the pricey carpet cleaner services or go to the trouble of renting a carpet cleaner. But you can actually freshen up your carpets by yourself for next to nothing.
Next time you notice that your carpets don’t smell as fresh as you’d like, simply grab a box of baking soda from the cupboard. Liberally sprinkled over your entire carpet area and let it sit. if you are just freshening up the carpets, let it sit for 15 or 20 minutes then vacuum it up. You can let it sit overnight before vacuuming if you are dealing with particularly smelly carpets.
The baking soda acts as a neutralizer and neutralizes the smell in the carpets. if you have a lot of carpet area to cover, you can purchase baking soda in bulk to keep the cost even lower. And it will cost only a fraction of the amount that the commercial products that do exactly the same job cost.
