Using Cornstarch, Baking Soda as a Carpet Cleaner

We’re always looking for pet-friendly cleaning solutions that are both easy on the environment AND easy on our budget, especially as we start our spring cleaning here. In your pantry, you’ll probably find two products that both make inexpensive carpet cleaners: cornstarch and baking soda.

Ordinary kitchen cornstarch makes a safe, effective carpet cleaner. Just sprinkle dry cornstarch powder on your carpet, leave it for an hour, then vacuum it up, just as you would the commercial product.

Baking soda is another excellent option; sprinkle it on then vacuum it up both to clean your carpet and to remove pet odors.
