Whether you have synthetic or natural fiber carpets, stains can be a huge pain to clean up. Blood stains, pet stains, spilled drinks and food can all make a mess of your carpets, but don’t let them get you down; you can clean your carpets, no matter what the style, with things you probably have lying around!
You’ll need three spray bottles. Fill the first with lukewarm water. With the second, make a detergent by mixing ¼ teaspoon of Dawn of other dishwashing liquid soap, and one cup of warm water. With the third, mix one part white, distilled vinegar with two parts water.
If the stain is oil based, you’ll also need a small bottle of non-acetone nail polish remover. Start with dabbing at the stain with the remover, and then proceed to the first step. (Always test the solutions on a hidden area).
- Spray the stained area with the detergent mix and let sit for fifteen minutes, then dry the area with a cloth or paper towel.
- Spray the stain with the vinegar mixture, then let that sit for another fifteen minutes. Blot the area with a dry cloth, making sure the area is dry.
- Rinse the area with the water, then dab at the stain.
- If the stain is gone, you’re done! Easy as pie. If it is sticking around, start all over again from step one. Your stubborn stain will be gone in no time!
