I have always loved products that have multiple uses. A product having multiple uses not only helps save money, it helps save space. And that is exactly what you get with the Carpet Sprinkles from Enchanted Potions. This product is made from Sodium Bicarbonate (fancy name for baking soda) and fragrance/essential oil. That's it. Two little ingredients. But with so many uses.
This product can be used, as the name implies, as a carpet sprinkle. Just lightly dust onto carpets, leave sit for a few minutes, and vacuum up. You will be left with a light, refreshing scent.
Another use for around the home is an all-purpose cleaner. Simply mix 1/4 cup of white vinager with 1 quart of water. Slowly add this to 2 tablespoons of the Carpet Sprinkle. This will bubble and fizz a little. When the bubbling stops, pour into a spray bottle, and use as any other cleaner.
The Carpet Sprinkle also works as a great laundry booster. Add 1 - 2 tablespoons to your washing maching with your regular laundry detergent. You will be left with clothes that have a light, lingering scent. You can also pair this up with a Dryer Sachet in the same scent.
Along with helping with household odors, the Carpet Sprinkle can also multi-purpose for pampering yourself. Use it as a foot soak by dissolving 1/2 cup of the Carpet Sprinkle in 1 gallon of warm water in your foot bath.
And yet another use, when ordering the Carpet Sprinkle with an essential oil instead of fragrance oil, you can use it as an exfoliate for your face. Mix 1 tablespoon of the Carpet Sprinkle with 1-1/2 teaspoons of water, and gently rub in circular motions on your face. Rinse well. Note, this is not recommended on sensitive skin, and only use on skin if ordering in essential oil fragrances.
