DIY Tips For Cleaning A Carpet

Darn, you spilled food and drink everywhere on your carpet, and even left a stain! While this scenario can cause most people to panic and call a cleaner or waste hours scrubbing at it with every stain cleaner in the cupboard, most carpet stains aren’t anything some elbow grease won’t fix.

No matter if you use style or do anything else for stains, sometimes the simplest methods are the best. DIY tips for carpet cleaning are often easier on your time and budget than most people think and can treat a wide variety of messes.

First, let’s take Kool-Aid, wine, or any other colored drink. Blot the stain with a towel, but don’t rub it in because that will only spread it around and make it go deeper into the carpet. Using white vinegar, soap, and some water mixed together can be used to spray the stain.

Then blot the stain with a towel until it is removed, and this method works for any color of carpet, including the white ones!

When your beloved dog, cat, or other animal goes to the bathroom on your carpet, it can cause some problems especially if it is dried already. Most solid objects or wet stains can be picked up with gloves or blotted with a towel, but dried ones often need white vinegar again.

Spray a mix of warm water and vinegar on the stain, let it soak, and then blot away until the stain is gone and your carpet is dry. Plus your home might smell like vinegar instead of pet waste, so that’s a plus.

Using the DIY tips can save time, money, and panic while using up the rest of the vinegar that you haven’t used for anything else.
