Are you tired of buying carpet fresheners that do not last long ? The key to keeping carpet smelling fresh is regular maintenance. You can also use pure essential oils for a lot of your cleaning needs, including freshening up your carpets in your home.

Essential oils can be used to deodorize pet smells,Guest Posting musty rooms. There are many different scents of essential oils some of these are lavender, tea tree, peppermint, lemon, etc... Tea tree oil can be used as a disinfectant for killing bacteria and odors that linger in your carpets.

How to Use Essential Oils

Sprinkle the baking soda on the area you are going to vacuum first. Take the cotton ball and drop 10 to 20 drops of your essential oil on a cotton ball and put it in your vacuum cleaner bag( if you have a bag less vacuum then mix the 10 to 20 drops of essential oils in a small bowl with the baking soda and then sprinkle the mixture on the carpet.) Vacuum mixture. Be careful when using baking soda to freshen carpets as too much baking soda can clog your vacuums. If you have inside pets, do not use essential oils around them as they are very sensitive to oils and smells.

TIP: Please make sure all oils are well-mixed in the baking soda so that they do not stain your carpet if you have a bag less vacuum

Hint: Lemon Essential Oil is one of my absolute favorites. Users seem to love the fresh lemon scent as well, it makes the carpets and home smell so fresh all day long.

Other Way to Keep That Fresh Smell

To keep carpets smelling fresh, make a habit of sprinkling baking soda on them 15 minutes before vacuuming. And put a little in the vacuum bag to keep that smelling good as well between uses.

Carpets and rugs can begin to get a musty odor, especially when it's humid or if there are pets in the house. Simply sprinkle carpets generously with baking soda. Let the soda stay 3-5 hours or overnight if possible to absorb the smell. Then vacuum thoroughly and both the powder and musty odor will be gone. Use the same treatment for carpets that have gotten water damaged or mildewed.

Start your quest for fresh-smelling carpet with a clean slate that begins with deep cleaning. Rent a carpet cleaner from a home improvement store, or hire a professional carpet cleaning company with good references. If you own a carpet cleaner, be sure that the machine itself (like the tanks) are clean and free of residue.

To keep your carpet fresh, vacuum your home at least three times a week (every day if you have pets). This prevents the particulates from becoming airborne and creating nasty smells. Use a lightly scented carpet freshening powder, following the directions and vacuuming thoroughly afterward. Fabric refreshers can help eliminate odors harbored by your carpet, as well.
