Carpet cleaning

The carpets in our house are disgusting - thanks to the 4 smelly dogs (now 3 smelly dogs). I have tried the talc powders from the store, but I heard that talc is not good for our health.

So, todays's research inspired me.
Here are non-talk suggestions from the web:

Baking soda and spices:

Items Needed:
1 1/2 cups Baking Soda
Essential Oil or spice to desired smell {I used cinnamon}
Bottle to store it in {I used a mason jar with a parmesan cheese lid. It fits perfectly!}

How To:
Mix together your baking soda and essential oil/spice.
Shake well.
Sprinkle freely amongst your carpet. {I let mine sit for approx. 5 mins just to let it do it’s work.}

Baking soda and fabric softener for stains and smells

Items Needed:
1/8 Cup of Fabric Softener
2 Tablespoons Baking Soda
Hot Water
Spray Bottle (I used an empty windex bottle)


Using a funnel, pour the fabric softener & baking soda into your spray bottle.
Fill the spray bottle with hot water and shake well.
TIP: Don’t forget to twist the nozzle over to the LOCK position if you’re using a Febreze bottle, or you might fall on your hiney.
Now spray every stinkin’ inch of your house!

Hydrogen Peroxide for very tough carpet stains - this lady used H3O to clean paint drips from her carpet
