Freshening Upholstery and Carpet: A Step-by-Step Guide to a Cleaner Home

Do you want to make your upholstery and carpets look and smell fresh without using harsh chemicals? Baking soda and essential oils are a great way to do just that! Mix 10 to 15 drops of essential oil for every half cup of baking soda. Make sure to mix everything together well, as there are usually small lumps in baking soda that absorb the oil. Give the mixture time to work its magic - an hour or so is ideal, and for difficult situations, you might want to leave it overnight. After the time has elapsed, take out the vacuum and thoroughly vacuum up all the baking soda.

This should cool most fabrics. When using vinegar, keep in mind that it is acidic and can damage delicate fabrics. Use this method on durable fabrics and always test in a small, inconspicuous place to make sure the fabric holds up. To freshen up any type of fabric upholstery, sprinkle the surface with baking soda. Use enough baking soda to cover the fabric about a quarter of an inch deep.

Let the soda sit on the surface for at least eight hours and then vacuum it up. The fabric will smell better and look brighter after the baking soda absorbs oils and odors. The lid of a frying pan is also a great tool for renewing upholstery and carpets. Simply place the lid over the fabric and press down firmly. This will help remove any wrinkles or creases in the fabric.

You can also use a steam cleaner to freshen up carpets and rugs. For those looking for an even deeper clean, you can use a combination of baking soda, vinegar, and essential oils. Start by sprinkling baking soda over your carpets or upholstery. Then mix equal parts vinegar and water in a spray bottle and spray it over the baking soda. Finally, add 10-15 drops of essential oil for every half cup of baking soda used.

Let this mixture sit for an hour or two before vacuuming it up. These simple steps will help you keep your carpets and upholstery looking fresh without having to use harsh chemicals. With just a few ingredients, you can have your home looking and smelling great in no time!.
