DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice Carpet & Rug Deodorizer

Winter may give you the smell of fresh-baked cookies and evergreen trees and spring may bring you the sweet smells of chocolate and summer may smell like sunshine, citrus and coconut but none of those compare to the scents you get in the fall. pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg define this season and whenever I smell them I think of family. Thanksgiving is such a great holiday of family and friends coming together to enjoy each others company over great food and drinks. To help get my house cleaned up for the fall and to infuse some of my favorite fall flavors I decided to make some DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice Carpet Deodorizer.

This carpet deodorizer will help eliminate any unpleasant odors in your carpets while leaving behind the subtle scents of fall. The best part of this is that it only takes two things to make this carpet deodorizer and a quick stir. It would take much longer to head to the store and pick up the commercial brands and that’s not even the best part. No, the best part is that to make this it cost me well under $1 and that was with making a double batch. The container I used for my carpet deodorizer was a Parmesan cheese jar like you’d see at an Italian restaurant or pizzeria that I found at the dollar store.

1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

Container to hold carpet deodorizer

In a bowl stir together the baking soda and pumpkin pie spice. Carefully pour the mix into the container. Shake onto your carpets and rugs. Let sit for 20-30 minutes and then vacuum. The whole room will smell better.

***Note*** Since this does contain spices that are brown you may not want to use these on light-colored carpets as it may discolor them.

I have been using this around the house on the carpets and it really does work. My husband is a smoker and he only smokes at his desk so the carpets smell awful there and this has helped keep away the dirty ashtray smell that the area usually reminds me of.

Did you know that Kool-Aid juice drink is now available at Walmart stores in a new ready-to-drink 96 oz. bottle? This is perfect for the warm weather to have on hand for cookouts. Ready-to-Drink Kool-Aid is also a great option to quench your thirst, to #KoolOff with on a hot summer day and even better it’s a great way for your family to skip drinking soda.

My husband has been drinking the Ready-To-Drink Kool-Aid to help him reduce his soda habit and luckily the ready to drink bottles come in his two of his favorite Kool-Aid flavors, Grape and Tropical Punch but if you’re looking for something different you can get it in Watermelon as well. With drinking all of this Kool-Aid though we have an abundance of the bottles leftover so I decided to take one and upcycle it into something perfect for the warm weather, barbecues and dining outside. I took one of the bottles and turned it into a silverware caddy for parties and cookouts. I even took it a step farther and decided to make it fun so that it could be decorated easily for any occasion with chalkboard paint. Since I was on a Kool-Aid kick I decided to use Kool-Aid packets to dye an old t-shirt to make the decorations that adorn the caddy. I now have a really cool Kool-Aid party accessory and a husband drinking much less soda.

I used Peach-Mango and Cherry-Limeade Kool-Aid packets to get these colors.

I used an old cotton t-shirt for the material.

I colored the tops of the cardboard black to match.
