So today, I made some more and thought I'd measure out what I use, in case anyone else cares to use it. If you do try it, let me know what you think.
Here it is:
- 1 cup each: baking soda, Borax, and corn starch
- 1/2 T whole cloves
- 1/4 t ground clove
- 1 T ground cinnamon
- 1/8 t nutmeg
- sift all together to blend and get lumps out
- shake to blend smells
- if you can wait to use, the spices distribute better
- shake before using
If you are wondering why I added Borax, it's because it is a natural flea repellent when sprinkled on rugs or cloth furniture and vacuumed about an hour later. As we have a cat and dog AND it is flea season, it seems like a wise idea.
