Homemade Carpet Powder – 2 Ingredients

What is that SMELL??? You say the kids did it, maybe the dogs? Who knows where that smell cam from but your carpets need to be refreshed.  Today I want to share how to make your own Homemade Carpet Powder Mix with just 2 ingredients! It will have your carpet and rugs smelling fresh in no time!

Homemade Carpet Powder is so frugal and easy to make yourself. Carpet powder is one product that I can’t do without.  Even though it is a reasonable price, it can all add up if you purchasing it often. Making it at home can help save you money.

This recipe only requires 2 ingredients! I am one for using ingredients that don’t contain harsh chemicals.  I love using essential oils. Essential oils are like concentrated super-powered plants. If you have pets that love to attract fleas you can prevent them by adding a few tablespoons of borax to you mix.

If you can recall I shared a neat trick for storing my baking soda.  This is how I also store my Homemade Carpet Powder. 

What You Will Need

Clean Mason Jar

Baking Soda, 1 box

Borax (optional, flea repellent)

Your Favorite Essential Oil – 10 to 15 drops



Rose Hip

Tea Tree 


How to Make Your Carpet Powder

To make your own carpet deodorizer using natural ingredients, combine baking soda in a medium sized bowl with 15 – 20 drops of essential oil. I have also combined oils it give a different scent.

Mix it together & store it in a mason jar or get creative and use an old Parmesan cheese container. The top of the container will make it easier to shake evenly on your carpet.

Once your deodorizer is complete sprinkle liberally on carpets and let set for 15 minutes to as long as an hour (depending on time available and strength of carpet odor). Vacuum thoroughly.
