DIY Vanilla Bean Carpet Freshener

Have you ever wondered just how many toxins are in the carpet freshener that you find at the stores? The smell may be lovely but you’re doing more harm than good, especially if you have children or pets that have consistent contact with the carpet.

A simple at home solution: Vanilla Bean Carpet Freshener

  • Fill up a mason jar with Borax – found in the laundry aisle
  • Add one vanilla bean
  • Add a few drops of organic vanilla extract
  • Shake – the longer it sits the more powerful it smells
  • Sprinkle sparingly onto carpet, let sit a few minutes then vacuum.

Borax is a natural odor fighter and can be used for many cleaning tasks around the house.
