No More Insects Dry Carpet and Rug Cleaner

This is a recipe I’ve been using for years. It’s great for those of us with allergies, all natural and edible but for the borax, and smells like heaven.

If you don’t have dried mint available, you may use essential oils such
lemon grass, citronella, sweet orange, lime, or any other e.o. with repellent properties.
