What I Love About This Carpet Powder Recipe
I really love that this recipe is kid and pet safe! I am always conscious of chemicals when I’m using commercial cleaning products. I always make sure that my kids and pets are away when I do the cleaning. But now, I am confident that even when my kids and pets are in the same room, they won’t be harmed by toxins.
What’s in This Natural Carpet Cleaner Recipe
Baking soda is a common kitchen essential that is also very helpful in DIY cleaning products. It is a natural deodorizer that neutralizes both basic and acidic odors, meaning it eliminates odor rather than just covering it up.
