It doesn’t matter how hard you try, you just can’t prevent your lovely carpet from getting stained, especially if you have kids or pets. Good news is that you can keep your carpets looking nice using only natural products which are entirely harmless. Here are two great natural carpet cleaning recipes:
Carpet Cleaning Recipe I
If you have a pet, then you know how hard it can be to clean urine stains and get rid of the odour they cause. Fortunately, you can remove pet stains from your carpet using only natural products. Pet urine contains acid and alkaline which should be counteracted using vinegar and baking soda. Try this green carpet cleaning solution.
- ½ cup of baking soda
- 1 cup of white vinegar
- 1 cup of lukewarm water
Pour the mixture in a spray bottle. Before applying the green carpet cleaner on the stain, make sure that you blot the stain with dry cloth to absorb excess liquid. Then spray the carpet area with the carpet cleaning solution and blot dry. If it’s necessary repeat the procedure to eliminate the odour.
Carpet Cleaning Recipe II
Here is another great carpet cleaning recipe that can help you remove a wide range of carpet stains such as tomato sauce stains and fruit stains.
- ½ cup of vinegar
- ½ cup of salt
- ½ cup of borax
The three ingredients should form a paste. It’s recommended that you use a clean, white cloth to work the paste directly into the carpet stain. Let it sit for 2-3 hours. Vacuum well to remove the paste.
These two green carpet cleaning recipes will help you keep your carpets stainless and germ-free.
