Bounce. To get rid of a stale smell in your home, place a sheet of Bounce in your vacuum cleaner bag before vacuuming the carpet.

Downy Fabric Softener. To help your carpet stay clean, smell more fragrant, and feel softer, add two ounces Downy Fabric Softener and fourteen ounces water in a sixteen-ounce trigger- spray bottle and spray a fine mist of the solution over your car pet after vacuuming. The antistatic elements in the Downy Fabric Softener make vacuuming up pet hair and lint effortless.

Heinz White Vinegar. To deodorize carpets, add one cup Heinz White Vinegar to your carpet cleaner when shampoo in your carpets. The carpet will smell like vinegar for an hour or two after cleaning, but once the smell fades, any other odors in the carpet will be gone too.
 

Kingsford’s Corn Starch. Deodorize carpets by sprinkling one-quarter to one-half cup Kingsford’s Corn Starch on the carpet. Let sit for thirty minutes and then vacuum clean. The cornstarch absorbs odors.
