Clean The Carpet

With two little babies at home, I know the importance of having clean floors. Damien is walking all over the place, and is too little to take off his shoes. Liam has been crawling for only three days. I vacuum the floor once every two days. Sometimes I vacuum every day.

I also like having a wonderful scent in the house.

There are two formulas that I make for the carpet. The first is a deodorizing powder. The second is a spray.

Here is my recipe

1 cup white vinegar
1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon dish soap
1 teaspoon super washing soda
3 drops fragrance oil

Combine the ingredients and pour into a spray bottle. Spray the entire carpet area. Then take a broom and sweet the solution into the carpet fibers. Allow to sit for about fifteen minutes, then vacuum the carpet. If there are any spots or stains, apply more of this solution onto the spot and rub with a damp cloth. Do not tear the carpet fibers. Use a rag or soft bristle toothbrush.
