Generously sprinkle baking soda over the entire carpet. You can mix lavender with the baking soda for a more pleasant scent. Allow the baking soda to sit on the carpet for 1-2 nights (the longer the better). After it sits, use a broom to sweep the top layer away and vacuum up any remaining baking soda.
