Now that you have removed and washed all machine-washable fabric items in the home (see tip #1) you need to tackle other fabric items that cannot be washed. Get a large bag of baking soda and a colander and sprinkle baking soda liberally on your carpets, fabric couches, chairs and other items too big to wash. Work the baking soda into the carpets or couches and maintain dry. Leave the baking soda to do its work while you move on to step #3. Vacuum up thoroughly after 60+ minutes.
