Leave it covered with baking soda for several hours, preferably for a day. Proceed to vacuuming carefully, to collect all the baking soda.

If you want to clean your carpet and soft furniture the same healthy way, use the following advice:
Take a container where you will mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of washing powder. You will then need 1 cup of warm boiled water and 5 teaspoons of white vinegar. The mixture will foam, so use a big container. Mix it well and pour into a water sprayer.
Vacuum the carpet and soft furniture and then spray the solution, leaving it for 5-10 seconds, remove with a sponge. Repeat until you get the desired results but be careful not to soak the fabric of the carpet or furniture with the liquid as it will make its colors fade away.
Remember that baking soda can be used on any fabric except for the natural ones!
You must stock up on baking soda and vinegar, the two products that will help you keep your home clean and healthy.
