Better Cleaning Basics: How to Make Your Own Chic Carpet Cleaner

Making your own home cleaning products is a great way to freshen up your space and get rid of grime in a non-toxic, eco-friendly way. They’re fun to customize with fragrance and tins, too, making the cleaning experience a little more exciting.

Adding HOME CARE PRODUCTS to home + body care collections is also on the rise in today’s eco-clean industry and we have many supplies you can use to get started!

The global household eco-cleaning product market is expected to grow from $18 Billion USD in 2017 to $28 Billion USD by the end of 2024. Not only is making natural home cleaning products a huge market opportunity for Makers, but it also means knowing EXACTLY what is in each product that goes into your home. What’s not to love about that?

Here’s an easy-to-make recipe for a DIY Carpet Cleaner that will have your space looking and smelling extra refreshed and clean!



  1. Simply mix baking soda and a few drops of your fragrance oil of choice together to make a super easy DIY carpet cleaning formula (we love this ODOR COUNTERACTANT SCENT).

  2. Store your fresh new carpet cleaner in a fun, colorful Glam Tin (we LOVE this PEACH one).

  3. Sprinkle your carpet cleaner on your carpet and leave on for at least 30 minutes. For ultra-cleaning, leave it on overnight.

  4. Vacuum the carpet after letting your cleaner settle in and enjoy your refreshed, clean, lovely scented carpet!
