3. Place 1 to 2 teaspoons mixture into a rigid mold or ice cube tray and press firmly until compact.

4. Allow to dry for 24 to 48 hours.

5. Gently pop out the pods and store in an airtight container.

6. To use, place pod in a pet- and childproof location to freshen surrounding room air, replace as needed.

Can this mixture be used to freshen rugs and carpets prior to vacuuming?

Hi Judy! This should not be used as a carpet powder. However, we do have a recipe that you can use in exchange!

I bet this would work on the cover of the kitty litter box. Will the baking soda simply disintegrate over time?
Thank you.
