You will use this brush to clean your carpet before using baking soda. This is why I recommend you to use a brush that doesn’t have tough bristles. In the event that you use one with such tough bristles, this might damage the carpet.

To clean your carpet, I recommend you to use :
In any case, please check with the manufacturer for their usage before using them or mixing them with a solution.
Whisk is totally optional. But it can be really helpful to make your own dry or wet solution. The use of a tool (instead of your hands) is more sanitary and it also acts as a protection for your hands to prevent allergies
Now, I will reveal to you my first simple method. This method is a direct treatment with baking soda.
First off, you have to vacuum your carpet. The goal is to get rid of other loose particles and dirt that might make your carpet muddy when treated with a wet solution.
You really do not have to remove everything, you just need to do a quick clean so that the dirt on the surface can be dealt with.
Now, sprinkle a liberal amount of baking soda directly on the carpet stain. Make sure that you are completely covering the stain and you distribute it evenly.
Then take a brush to work it into the deepest fibers of the carpet. Remember to work it in gently so that the carpet will not get ruined.
If you have a carpet with a fuller texture, you can opt for or using an old sock or t-shirt.
When doing this, the baking soda might clump, so massage everything evenly. Let the baking soda sit there overnight to have results.
Last but not least, vacuum your carpet to get all of the baking soda off.
Remember to work in sections so that there will be no leftover product. Once there is no visible baking soda left, you can then do another round of the vacuum to completely clean your carpet.
Now, your stain is gone…. but you still have this smell.
Don’t leave this page because I’ll reveal my second simple method. This method is just useful when dealing with tough smells.
Before doing the baking soda treatment, wash the stained area with carpet shampoo.
If you do not have one, you can use my carpet cleaner recipe. After doing so, wait for the carpet to completely dry before applying the baking soda treatment. Once the bubbling has settled, take your paper towel and blot that area to absorb moisture(2). Notice that the stain will be lightened. Just keep on repeating on pouring the hydrogen peroxide and blotting it afterward until the area is completely lightened.
Then, mix baking soda with a whisk, making sure that there are no clumps. Put a liberal amount directly on the stain and let it sit there for 24 hours. In order to mask the smell, you can also mix at least 10 drops of your chosen essential oil to the baking soda mixture.
Now, you can vacuum your carpet again to remove the baking soda. If there is still some smell left, just apply vinegar and baking soda treatment. You can also add essential oils. Apply this treatment until you eradicate the smell.
