You probably can’t really smell it, but family and friends who visit you probably can. Maybe you don’t realize what’s lurking in your carpet, but whatever it is — old pet stains, smoke, cooking smells — it can really stink up your house. The good news is, you really can deodorize it and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or take a ton of effort. Here are five easy ways to deodorize your carpet that you can try today.
For neutralizing odors, it’s hard to beat vinegar. If you aren’t too keen on the smell of the vinegar itself, rest easy — once it’s dry, you won’t be able to smell it. And best of all, the odors will be gone, too! Pour some white vinegar into a spray bottle and spritz your carpet. Let it dry and repeat if necessary. Easy peasy!
