Do It Yourself ~ Carpet Cleaning Powder

Carpet Cleaning Powder


With smelly little boys and a cat in our house, I use a lot of carpet cleaning powder before vacuuming. I love being able to make my own from easy ingredients. It’s cost effective, I can control the scent and I’m not dumping a bunch of chemicals in my house for my kids to crawl all over.


Ingredients for Do It Yourself Carpet Cleaning Powder

  • Baking Soda
  • Borax
  • Empty container {I put holes in the lid of an old Ball jar for mine – you could also use a clean, empty Parmesan cheese bottle}
  • Nutmeg OR essential oil of your choice like lemon or orange


How to Make Carpet Cleaning Powder

For this 2 cup Ball jar, I mixed 1 1/2 cups of baking soda with 1/2 cup of Borax. I then mixed in a few sprinkles of Nutmeg. You could also add a few drops of your favorite essential oil instead. Then just sprinkle on your carpet a few minutes before vacuuming. I love using Nutmeg during the winter, but during the summer, I plan to use a citrus based oil to make the house smell like summer!
