Pin It Now! Yes! I have kicked the pup smell in the butt! Its Thrifty, Natural, and DIY!
We have a fully carpeted home... (I cannot wait until its all hardwood or at least snap together laminate!) Our pup started shedding and my sister has a pup too that comes over and tends to shed too... That is a whole lot of dog hair that gets vacuumed every couple days. With dog hair comes a certain smell... I love my little pup with my everything but that blasted smell I could absolutely live without!
Money does not allow me to rip out the carpet just yet so I had to think of another alternative, a natural alternative, of course!
So I went into my cupboards and used some information that I have learned over the last couple months. Baking soda is the best invention ever! Oooo and lemon! Both great things!!!!
This is all you need! Baking Soda, Shaker container, and Lemon! (you can use any scent I just prefer real lemon)
I filled the container with baking soda squeezed about half a lemon into it. Shook the heck out of the container to ensure it was completely mixed. Sprinkle the mixture all over the carpet. Let it sit for about 15 min (don't worry your little pup can sniff and lick as much as he wants... it wont hurt him) Then vacuum it up! I do this once a week while the pups are in shedding season. Sometimes more often depending if there are little ones crawling on the carpet.
SMELL BE GONE! Huzzah!
