Freshen Carpets and Sofas With Bicarb Of Soda – Amazing Life Hack

9 February, 2014


This is such a great hack and one so easily forgotten when we walk down the cleaning aisle at the supermarket.


Never again buy those smelly carpet/sofa deodorisers.  They are expensive and not necessary.  All you need is a packet of bicarb of soda.


Sprinkle the entire area you want freshened with the bicarb of soda and simply leave for 15-20 minutes.


Vacuum up the powder and woolaaah!  The fabric or carpet will be left fresh again.


Your vacuum cleaner however may look like it has just sucked up a bag of cocaine ;), so you may need to empty it.


Cheers to using cheaper cleaning products!
