I don't remember where I got this recipe but I love it and wanted to share
2 C Baking Soda
1/3 C Cornstarch
5 bay leaves (crumbled)
1 TBLS Ground Cloves
Mix ingredients together and sprinkle liberally all over the carpet and leave on overnight. The next day vacuum up. Close the doors to the rooms that you are cleaning so pets or kids don't get on the carpet.
P.S. did you know you could get rid of winter static by mixing 1/2 c liquid fabric softener with 1 qt water. Put in a spray bottle then spray on the area where you want to eliminate static and let dry. It will remain static free for several months
