How Can I Deodorize My Carpets With Spices & Baking Soda? | BCS Cleaning Specialists

Carpets can be both beautiful and functional, but with their abundance of absorbent fibers, they can also soak up undesirable smells. Follow our quick, green process to remove nasty stinkies from your lovely soft carpets.

You will need:

½ cup baking soda

½ cup borax 

1 tspn ground spices (Cinnamon is a great option to try on dark carpets – DO NOT USE on light-colored carpets as it may stain; essential oils may be used instead) 

Mix the ingredients together and then store in a dry, well-ventilated place in an airtight container, preferably one with a sprinkle lid or lid with holes poked through it. Sprinkle the mixture onto stinky carpet and leave in situ for at least 30 minutes. The baking soda is a powerful smell absorber, especially of pet smells. 

Vacuum thoroughly after thirty minutes and you will be left with just the delicious scent of warm spices.

I've used other local franchise companies in the past and the attention to detail was always lacking. BCS's attention to detail is consistently good, they show up when they say and their service is much more personal than the larger franchises. Happy with their job everytime.
