DIY Air Freshener & Carpet Deodorizer

February 27, 2014

DIY Air Freshener & Carpet Deodorizer
This super simple 2 ingredient air freshener also doubles as a carpet deodorizer. If you're like me and hate the smell of artificial air fresheners this is a great natural alternative to any store bought freshener and it only costs cents to make.

What you will need:

  • Baking Soda
  • Essential Oil (I used lavender)
  • Small Jar
  • Pretty tissue paper (I didn't have any so I just decorated white tissue paper with a gold Sharpie)
  • Ribbon (Optional)
  • Needle or pen/pencil to poke holes in the paper

Fill your jar with baking soda and add about 20-30 drops of your essential oil. I tend to put a few extra drops of essential oil because I like a stronger smelling air freshener.

Shake or Stir: If you are using a mason jar with a lid, put the lid on and shake the mixture. I didn't have a lid for my jar so I just stirred mine with a chopstick.

Decorate your jar however you like. I covered mine with tissue paper (be sure to cut your circle bigger than your jar), secured it with a rubber band and then added a ribbon. If you have a mason jar all you have to do is use the metal circle lid to trace around the tissue paper, (you can also use scrapbook paper, computer paper or cardstock paper) cut it out and replace it where the lid would normally go.

Poke some holes in the paper with a needle or pen.

That's all there is to it! Whenever I feel like the smell is fading away I just give the jar a little shake.

To use as a carpet deodorizer simply sprinkle the mixture onto your carpet let it sit for about 15-30 min and then vacuum it up. The baking soda will absorb any odors and essential oil is a natural way to freshen up the room. The scent possibilities are endless when you mix a bunch of different essential oils together.

  1. I use baking soda and different essential oils as a freshener, too! It's natural and it's not dangerous for my two cats!
