We’ve focused on baking soda and white vinegar in previous articles, but today we want to share a few other options if maybe you don’t have those products on hand.
LemonThe acidity in lemon juice is more than enough to take care of unpleasant carpet odor. Mix some fresh lemon juice with a little water and apply it to the affected areas. Scrub the solution with a piece of cloth and rinse with soapy water. Make sure the carpet is completely dry after rinsing.
Mild detergent Gently rub some mild detergent into your carpet and point a room fan directly at the affected area to help it dry quickly and thoroughly. Remember not to use too much water—it’ll soak into the carpet pad and create unpleasant odors of its own.
Foam cleanersUse foam cleaners to deal with persistent or overwhelming carpet odors. Spray the cleaner evenly over the carpet and allow it to soak. Once it has dried and turned into a powder, use a vacuum to remove the residue.
