– The topic discussed here is about deodorizing the carpet using baking soda. When the carpet becomes dirty, it not only spoils the appearance but also emanates a very bad odor. The carpet can be cleaned using some strong chemicals, but these strong chemicals are not only harmful to the environment but also not good for inhalation as well as bad for the carpet itself in the long run. Here is a useful tip for keeping your carpet clean in a very inexpensive and eco-friendly way using baking soda. First, remove the dirt from the carpet. Carpets tend to become dirty and soiled very fast when people walk over it with shoes and footwear on. The soil from the sole of the shoes penetrate deep into the carpet fabric making it difficult to remove them. So the first step is to vacuum clean the carpet thoroughly to remove the deep ingrained dirt as well. Next, sprinkle baking soda liberally all over the carpet surface leaving it there for several hours. The baking soda absorbs all the bad odor from the carpet. The longer the baking soda is left to sit there, the better it is. Finally, vacuum out all the baking soda using a vacuum cleaner/carpet cleaner. There it is! You will have a very fresh and odor free carpet in a matter of few hours.
