For decades people have been using Baking Soda to freshen their carpet and vacuum. Also pouring it on pet accidents. Don’t Use it! It is such a fine powder that it gets blown into every part of your vacuum. It clogs Bags and filters for the bagless types. But the worst part is that it is horrible for your lungs and you will be breathing that in every time you turn the vacuum on. Products sold at the grocery stores made out of the soda and scented are just as bad. It is almost impossible to clean it out of the vacuum unless it is disassembled down to the motor and everything is washed and blown out. There are plenty of new and older products that work better than this without the fine powder going into your lungs. We even carry a product to put directly on the pet accident and works wonderfully to get the smell out and non clogging. Come on into the stores and check out the products! They are very economical also!
