That is because the main ingredient for these deodorizers is baking soda, which can easily be purchased in bulk for a fraction of the cost of commercial products.

And since baking soda can be used in so many different homemade cleaner recipes, it is worth buying it in bulk to save money on your cleaning supplies.

Another advantage of making a homemade version of carpet deodorizer is that you can also give your carpet, and the room its in, a nice smell at the same time, and this smell can be of your choosing.

You are not limited to the choices available for the commercial products, and you can make the fragrance as strong, or as light as you want.

In fact, if you don't want a scent added, because of allergies or other reasons, this is also possible by just following the directions below, but not adding any of the fragrances listed.

Lavender Carpet Freshener And Deodorizer


  • 1/2 cup lavender flowers
  • 1 cup baking soda


Step 1: Crush the flowers in a large bowl to release their scent.

Step 2: Place the crushed flowers and the baking soda in a shaker with large holes, and mix well.

Step 3: Sprinkle the mixture on the carpet.

Step 4: Wait approximately half an hour and then vacuum it up.

Hint: You can substitute any fragrant flowers you wish for the lavender ones, to give the room whatever floral scent you prefer.

Carpet Freshener And Deodorizer With Essential Oils


  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 7-10 drops essential oil (whatever scent you prefer)


Step 1: Combine the baking soda and essential oils together, in a large bowl. The mixture will have a tendency to clump up, and therefore you must break up the clumps and try to distribute, as evenly as you can, the essential oils througout the baking soda.

Step 2: Place this mixture into a shaker with large holes.

Step 3: Sprinkle the mixture on the carpet.

Step 4: Wait approximately half an hour and then vacuum it up.

Recommended Large Hole Shakers For Your Homemade Carpet Deodorizer

One of the necessary pieces of equipment you need to use either of these recipes is a shaker with large enough holes to amply sprinkle the carpet freshener and deodorizer onto the carpeting.

A salt shaker, for example, is not really good enough for several reasons including the small size of the holes, and also the small size of the container.

Below are some recommended shakers you can use when applying these recipes, all of which come with large holes and are large enough to hold a sufficient supply of the baking soda mixture.
