How to deep clean carpets with a bad odor
A great solution for deep cleaning includes one scoop of a strong power odor remover and regular dish soap. Preferably, a dish soap that removes grease. To make the mixture even more effective, add 2 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol and 6 tablespoons of window cleaner.
Use a scrubbing brush of your choice, pour the mixture on to the carpet, and scrub until satisfied. If there is still residue you can apply water and then dry with a towel. This mixture is especially great for cleaning carpets in your car.
If you don’t see the desired results the first time, feel free to repeat the process.
How to remove tough stains
This next method is simple and convenient. First, gather a spoon, a spray bottle, dish soap, rubbing alcohol and a small towel. Grab a mixing bowl, add a cup of warm water, half teaspoon of dish soap, 2 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol. Stir these ingredients together.
Add the mixture to your spray bottle and apply to the stain. Tap the spot with a spoon for better absorption and let it soak for 5-10 minutes. Next, blot the spot with a dry towel and rub in one direction until you start to see results.
How to clean with fabric softener
Shampoo is a common way to clean carpets because it has the ability to remove dirt. The issue with shampoo is that it produces residue which attracts dirt. One way to get around this shampoo issue is by using fabric softener.
Fabric softener retracts dirt and also softens your carpet. To make an effective solution, mix any fabric softener of your choice with liquid laundry detergent and baking soda.
Put this mixture in a spray bottle, spray it over your carpet and lightly scrub with a soft brush. This method is great because it gives your carpet a soft and shiny look.
How to clean dried surface spots with a squeegee
Fabric softener is also a great way to remove dried chunks that aren’t too deep in to the carpet. To begin, you need a spray bottle, window squeegee and a fabric softener mixture; 1/4 fabric softener and 3/4. Pour the mixture in to a spray bottle and apply to the affected area.
Next, move the squeegee over the sprayed areas as if you were cleaning a window. Repeat this until the chunks are gone. This method is a lot less harsh than using stain removing products.
Feel free to use this method all over your carpet, not just on dry spots, for a simple cleaning.
How to clean up hair or fur
This next method is probably considered “old-school” but it seems to do the trick. It’s a good solution especially if you have kids and/or pets you worry about using harsh chemicals around.
First, gather 5 common household items; water, detergent, salt, a scrub brush any old rag. Next, mix the water and detergent in a spray bottle and shake gently. Before you start to spray, shake the salt and baking soda over the affected area.
After you spray the mixture, let it sit for around 5 minutes. Then, scrub with your brush in one direction; the brush should begin to collect any hair or fur. Use the towel or rag to soak up the extra liquid.
Finally, apply clean water on top of the area and use dry towels to soak up the water.
How to clean your carpet with completely natural products
Another old-school method that can be effective for surface cleaning involves vinegar, a broom, and hot water. All you need to do is mix equal amounts of white vinegar and hot water together. Apply the mixture to the area you desire.
Then, take the broom and begin to sweep the broom over the wet area. This method is definitely the most simple and accessible. It’s important to keep in mind that this method is most useful for removing small amounts of dirt.
Make sure you don’t mix vinegar with baking soda or hydrogen peroxide. Mixing vinegar with other products can be too harsh, especially if you’re looking for a natural solution.
