Hint 1:

Lift carpet smells with a saltshaker

The easy way to rid rugs of trapped-in odors is simply shake a generous amount of table salt onto the fibers before going to bed, then vacuum it up in the morning. Salt is a super-deodorizer that has the double benefit of naturally killing tiny pests that hide in rugs, like fleas, by drying out the moisture they need to thrive.

Hint 2:

Kill laundry funk with a vodka cocktail

If you have extra-smelly clothes, like work-out gear, sitting in your laundry basket, whip up a pretreatment spray of 1 part vodka (a potent bacteria-killer) to 3 parts water, and mist onto clothes. The alcohol eliminates odor without leaving behind a smell or stains.
