DIY: Homemade Carpet Cleaner

Why buy carpet cleaner when you can make your own 🙂






[vinegar is a great item to have around for cleaning tasks]


* First, be sure to treat the stain right away (blot the initial spill with a paper towel)

  • Use salt
    • Pour immediately over spill. Wait 15 minutes and then vacuum up
    • The salt will absorb the spill
  • Use white vinegar
    • Put some vinegar into a spritzer bottle and spray the stains liberally. Let the solution stand for a few minutes before wiping up
      • A scrub brush can be used to brush the vinegar into carpet
    • Mixing salt with the vinegar helps soaks up the wetness of the stain
    • Mix corn starch with the vinegar for tougher stains
      • Spread the solution over the stain and allow it to harden
  • Club Soda
    • Pour onto cloth and press into stain until it is removed
  • Baking Soda
    • More of an odor remover/neutralizer than a stain remover
    • Spread over carpet and gently rub in; let it set in for a few hours before vacuuming
