This smelled wonderful! I whirled the lavender and the rosemary in the blender to break it down a little and sprinkled on my rug. After I vacuumed it I got down and smelled the rug, it smelled so clean! Thanks for an easy treatment I will be using alot!!!

I love this. Just chopped up a cup of fresh rosemary into two cups of baking soda, sprinkled on the carpet and vacuumed up about 1/2 an hour later. The carpets smell lovely but there isn't a weird "chemical" scent coming off them... just freshness. And dang was that cheap.

I had off work yesterday and was doing some major cleaning. I normally use carpet fresh but wanted to give this a try as hubby has allergies and is not fond of the smell of carpet fresh. This worked great. Since you add your own ingredients, I could control the strength of the smell. I will be using this in the future!

Rainy weather, 3 large dogs, very small house, company coming and no "Carpet Fresh" Yikes!!! Zaar (or PetsRUs) to the rescue. I went in the garden, chopped off some lavender, pulled a bunch - well many bunches of mint and a bunch of rosemary. Micked the herbs til dry and tossed everything in the food pro til it was powder. LOVED IT!!! I will never buy the stuff again as I hate the sweet, powdery smell. This was herbal, fresh and very clean smelling. Thank you so much!

This makes a wonderfully scented carpet deodorizer. I am very glad you posted this Pets as we can't get commercial brands in Greece. I have made up an enormous batch to see me through the winter and am looking forward to fresh-smelling carpets (and a fresh-smelling home).
