Gathering Your Fragrant Allies
What You’ll Need:
- Baking Soda: The natural odor absorber and cleaner.
- Cornstarch: Helps to bind the scent to your carpets for longer-lasting freshness.
- Lavender Essential Oil: The star of the show, offering its soothing and antibacterial properties.
Step-by-Step: Crafting Your Aromatic Freshener
Blending Your Scented Wonder
1. Mix Your Foundation
- Powdered Harmony: In a bowl, mix together 1 cup of baking soda and 1/2 cup of cornstarch. This base mixture is your canvas for capturing the essence of lavender and spreading it throughout your home.
2. Scent with Lavender
- Essence of Tranquility: Add 6 drops of lavender essential oil to your powdered base. Stir well to ensure the fragrance is evenly distributed. For an alternative method, combine the ingredients in a ziplock bag, seal it, and give it a good shake. This helps to evenly distribute the essential oils throughout the mixture.
3. Sprinkle and Soothe
- Application of Bliss: Sprinkle your Lavender Scented Carpet & Rug Deodorizer lightly over your carpets and rugs. The aim is not just to deodorize but to leave a light, pleasing scent that transforms your space into a lavender-laced sanctuary.
4. Wait, Then Vacuum
- Patience for Perfection: Allow the deodorizer to sit for at least 30 minutes, though an hour is ideal for maximum absorption and scent release. Then, vacuum your carpets as normal, lifting away odors and leaving freshness and calm in their place.
