How to Remove Carpet Odors Effectively

Carpets come in all shapes and sizes but there is one thing that they all have in common. They simply love to capture odors within their grasping strands, holding onto scents with no cares as to whether they are good or bad smells. If you've been struggling with a particularly smelly carpet, you might be wondering if it truly is possible to remove carpet odors for good. These tricks of the trade will rid you and your carpet of any and all funk.

Baking Soda

Sometimes the best fixes are the classic ones. Baking soda is great for a vast amount of uses but odor control is one of its finest. Simply shake some baking soda onto the affected area of the carpet and then use a broom to sweep the soda particles all over the fibers. After that, add even more baking soda. Don't be afraid of using too much because baking soda works even better in high quantities. You'll then want to wait for at least 24 hours (the longer the better) and then vacuum up all the baking soda off the carpet. With any luck this will fully remove any and all smells.


If you have a mild detergent (no bleach or anything too concentrated), you can use this to bid carpet odors adieu. Use a scrub that isn't too abrasive and then wet the affected area with a small amount of water. Too much water will make it harder to dry the carpet and could even make it smell worse. Then scrub gently with the detergent. If your carpet is removable you can let it sun-dry but the odds are good that your carpet is the kind that isn't going anywhere. In this instance, a plug-in fan pointed at the wet spot should be just right.

Peroxide and Vinegar

This little trick not only neutralizes odors but can also aid with stain removal as well. The key is to get a spray bottle and pour a quarter of a cup of hydrogen peroxide into it. Mix this with two tablespoons of baking soda and then spray it on the smelly part of the carpet. Pat it dry and then add vinegar. You'll want to let this sit for a little while and then dry with a towel and then a fan. If done right, you will hopefully have an odor-free carpet.
