The Absorbent Power:
Yes, it’s true! Baking Soda has absorbent properties which can help in drying a wet rug. Baking soda can absorb the excess moisture in your carpet by sprinkling it generously on the wet area.
Assisting with Unpleasant Smells
There are many unpleasant smells that come along with wet carpets. But fear not. Baking Soda also deodorizes, neutralizing those unpleasant smells.
It’s not a miracle worker, but a helping hand:
It’s vital to understand that baking soda won’t do miracles. If the area is large, or the water has been heavily soaked, baking soda may not be enough. It is best to combine baking soda with other methods of drying for better results.
Spread baking soda liberally onto a wet carpet. It will absorb moisture for up to a couple of hours and fight odors. After removing the baking soda, vacuum the remaining water and baking soda from the carpet.
While baking soda generally is safe, test it first on a smaller, less visible area of the carpet. Also, baking soda can react with dyes or carpet fibers.
