If' I've said it once, I've said it a million times. I really love a simple little project like this, 15 minutes or less, checking them off the 'to-do' list feels oh-so satisfactory!
So I feel almost silly typing out a tutorial for this. I filled the jar partway with baking soda. Added 3 drops of lavender oil, and topped it with an equal amount of baking soda. Three more drops of lavender- add the cap- and shake, shake, shake!
I made mine right on the carpet, because I obviously didn't care if I spilled a bit. I also saved punching the holes in the cap for the end so I didn't make a HUGE mess while getting my shake on.
I'll also plan to use this carpet refreshing mixture to freshen up our mattress several times a year as well. When we've already got the sheets off for washing, I'll just sprinkle some on\ & let it sit for at least an hour, and vacuum away before putting sheets back on.
Next time I might try this recipe using lemon essential oil next time- it's my favorite- I cannot get enough.
Have you been making any homemade cleaning products lately? Do you love essential oils like I do? We have a diffuser now- it's been revolutionary- and I plan to share more on that before too long!
