Air freshener and carpet powder is not expensive but when you live on an old farm with more rotten smells than fresh ones, you go through a lot. I’ve always battled the cat area. It would be easier to not have cats but they keep it rodent free and I have a sentimental attachment.
After making this recipe a couple days ago I checked on it and it’s still going strong and absorbing smell. A couple days isn’t much, but for a homemade item battling cat smell that’s an accomplishment to me!
What You Need:
- 30 – 50 drops of fragrance oil
- Baking soda
- Container with holes (Like a Parmesan cheese container)
That’s it! Sprinkle on carpet before vacuuming or leave in a container to absorb smell in an area.
Tips: You could use essential oil but I prefer to keep them for body products since they’re pricey.
