How to make your own carpet deodorant
I’ve spent the last couple of months crafting a custom-made deodorizing carpet for my apartment, which has become my go-to place to put on some extra personal touch.
This carpet is made with the highest quality materials, including high-grade organic and natural fibers and eco-friendly, biodegradable and sustainable plastic, all of which I know and love.
I’ve learned to make my own carpet, as it is so much more labor- and time-efficient.
What you’ll need: 1.
Cotton fabric or wool fabric.
Fabric softener such as Woolite.
A fabric towel.
Fabric fabric, such as a cotton towel or towel with an elastic band.
Fabric cotton or linen batting.
Fabric paper towel.
Fabric sewing machine.
Fabric wool batting.
Cotton twine or yarn.
3) Cleaning up the carpet: 1) Remove any excess fabric from the carpeting.
2) Using a cotton softener, cut and discard any excess cotton threads.
3/4-inch or less is fine.
4) Cut out a rectangular shape of the carpet.
You can use a ruler to make a rectangle of the desired length, but you will want a square of the length, so you can work with this rectangle as you cut it out.
I use a flat piece of paper towels to measure my rectangle.
I measure about 1 1/2 inches by 1 inch and cut it in half lengthwise.
The smaller half of the rectangle is where the fabric will go when it’s cut.
If you cut the fabric rectangle in half, the fabric should stay on the sides.
Otherwise, it will pull the fabric inwards, which can cause it to tear.
So I cut the remaining fabric in half.
It’s a good idea to use a fabric softener to clean up any remaining excess fabric, but it’s not necessary to do this as long as you don’t damage the fabric too badly.
I like to use fabric softeners like Woolite or Cottonmunk, which I have used in the past, but any fabric softening product that is not cotton-based is fine as long it is a softener that doesn’t break down or burn your skin.
You don’t have to wash your carpet to make sure it is clean, though.
Clean the carpet with a damp cloth and gently scrub the area to remove any remaining dust and debris.
The carpet can also be used to clean your home.
1) Wash your hands and apply a mild soap to your hands.
This will not only remove any dirt and grime, but also any residue from the fabric.
You want to thoroughly rinse all the fabric and any remaining fibers with a mild, soapy washcloth.
2/3 of the fabric is fine and can be washed separately.
The other third is fine but can be brushed onto the carpet and allowed to dry.
I don’t know why I bother with the remainder of the piece of fabric, because I’m not cleaning it any longer.
3 / 3 After it’s dried, you can clean the carpet in the same manner as you would a normal surface.
Just brush it gently on the carpet surface and let it dry completely before wiping it with a clean cloth.
Clean your hands by applying a soft, but not abrasive scrubbing scrub to the carpet or by lightly rubbing it with your fingers and wiping away excess residue.
4/3 Once dry, you will have a carpet that is ready for use.
I would recommend using a cotton fabric softner like Woolites or Cottonnums to clean the surface and the fibers.
You may need to use other softeners, like Wool, to soften the fibers a bit.
If the carpet is not drying completely, it may still need to be thoroughly washed before you use it. 5) After using the carpet, you may want to clean it up.
If it is dirty, remove the fabric, and use a cotton cloth to wipe it clean.
You will want to wipe off the excess fabric and fabric remnants, and then dry the area thoroughly.
You also want to scrub off any remaining dirt and debris, including dust and residue.
To remove the remaining residue, you need to gently wash the carpet again with a light, soapsafe cotton cloth.
I typically wash my carpet at least once a week, so if you do not, you won’t notice any change in the carpet’s appearance.
After the carpet has dried completely, you should have a smooth, clean, flat surface that is clean and comfortable to work with.
It may take a bit of practice
