TMR Frugal Living Tip #18

Today's thrifty tip is sprinkle baking soda on your carpets, let sit for 15-20 minutes and then vacuum. It's cheaper than the stuff in the store and not toxic. It deordorizes the carpet.

I never tried this because I thought baking soda was only effective if there was moisture present, and I didn't want wet carpet. I'll have to try it!
