Cinnamon Sticks

The verdict is in people! Spraying harsh chemicals in the air is not cool. We'll tell you once, twice, and over and over again... spraying chemicals into the air is not good for your health or your home. Take the natural approach and try cinnamon!

DIY Cinnamon Carpet Shakers -

All you need is a few ingredients and you can make your own inexpensive carpet powder.

  • Jar with a lid  
    • i.e. Parmesan cheese shaker, empty spice jar, or a mason jar 
  • 2 cups Baking Soda
  • 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon Spice
  • Hammer 
  • Phillips Head Screwdriver or Ice Pick 

  1. Once you have found your shaker, you will need to poke holes through the lid if yours doesn't already have them. To do this I used a hammer and phillips head screwdriver. 
  2. Next combine your ingredients and mix well. 
  3. Sprinkle freely over the carpet and let it sit for about 10 - 20mins. 
  4. Next thoroughly vacuum your little heart out and smell the yummy goodness.

Don’t use ground cinnamon if you have a lighter colored carpet and you're worried about potential staining. You can use cinnamon or clove essential oil instead if you still want to incorporate their scent into your carpet powder
