Deodorizing with Vinegar
Vinegar is another great possibility for natural carpet deodorizing. You may be worried about the smell of vinegar but once the liquid dries completely, it becomes odorless. In the process, vinegar will absorb unpleasant smells. This is why it often gets used for old fridges, to neutralize cat litter box odor, for general house deodorizing and for carpets.
White vinegar is the best variety. Pour vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray the liquid evenly on the carpet. Let the vinegar dry completely and if necessary, repeat the procedure once again.
Cleaning and Deodorizing Carpets with Vodka
A cheap vodka variety is an excellent options for cleaning your carpets and getting rid of bad odor. Vodka kills bacteria and it can be used as a natural stain remover.
Vodka is great for pet urine and other stubborn smells. Do spot cleaning of the stain and spray a bit of vodka on top. Allow it to act for 10 to 15 minutes and use paper towels to absorb excess moisture. You can sprinkle a bit of baking soda on top to absorb all of the remaining moisture. Vacuum clean the carpet and you are done.
