How to Deodorize Carpets

Counter Rotating Brush

While stains on carpeting might be unsightly, you can cover them with strategically placed furniture or rugs. But when it comes to smelly carpeting, there’s nothing you can do to hide it, and sprays can sometimes make the room smell even worse or — dare we say it — dissipate before your guests leave. What’s that smell? Luckily, there are some steps you can take to deodorize carpets and make the room smell fresher again.

How to Deodorize Carpets

Baking Soda Mixture

Mix 1/2 cup baking soda with 1/2 cup borax. Consider adding essential oils or a teaspoon of ground spices to the mix for an extra yummy scent (as long as you don’t have white or light-colored carpeting!). Sprinkle the mixture onto the carpeting and let it sit for 30 minutes, then vacuum.


While it might smell strong at first, vinegar dries scentless. Pour white vinegar into a spray bottle and spray evenly on the carpet. Simply let it dry and repeat if necessary.


Do you have a cheap bottle lying around? Vodka is great for treating pet urine smells. Spot clean the stain and then spray vodka on top. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and use a paper towel or white towel to absorb the remaining liquid.
