For any pet owners out there who need a quick fix for carpet odors, or if you just want fresh/clean carpets, here is a great recipe for making your own Carpet Deodorizer.

3/4 Cup Baking Soda

3/4 Borax

25 drops of essential oil (i used Tea Tree Oil because that is what I have on hand)

Mix them in a bowl and scoop into an empty store-bought carpet powder container or a even a sugar/syrup or other glass/plastic container with a sprinkle option (you can find these at the $ store). Sprinkle on carpets, leave for 20 minutes and vacuum!

About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
