I need to know how if there is a way to make homemade carpet freshener. Does anyone have ideas?
Baking soda works well for homemade carpet fresh. Just add a sprinkle of cinnamon or any spice for a fresh smell.

Baby powder will make it smell nice too. (08/16/2005)
We buy it at Dollar Tree for $1.00 per can (if that helps). (09/23/2005)
We use this little packet of scented granules that we bought at Wal-Mart. They had vanilla or cherry scents available They only cost about $.97, and they are shelved by the vacuum bags and filters. You sprinkle the granules on your carpet, then vacuum them as usual. The scent permeates from the vacuum each time you use it due to the granules in teh bag being warmed and jumbled around it in. So no more stinky old vacuum scent filling the air. (10/02/2005)
These will clog up your vacuum fast, so be sure to clean it once a month! I used to use pet fresh by A and H, then had a lot of accidents when my older son was potty training. We had residue in our vacuum like crazy, to the point that you could smell it when the vacuum was turned on, and we had stopped using it (and changed the bag!) (03/30/2006)
Good luck! (08/27/2008)
