Have you been spending hundreds of dollars on expensive commercial brand carpet cleaners? Well did you know that some of your favorite brands contain ingredients such as perchloroethylene? This is a popular chemical used in dry cleaning, which is known to cause nausea, dizziness and fatigue
If you’re looking for a way to get a better clean, and doing it in a healthier, eco-friendly way, you can do it with ingredients you probably have right in your home! All you need is white vinegar, and baking soda – two of the best natural super cleaners around.
Deciding to switch to eco-friendly carpet cleaning is a great choice. Especially if you have children or furry friends in your home. Not to mention, baking soda and vinegar are awesome cleaners and odor eliminators for those stubborn pet stains and smells.
Before you are ready to clean your carpets, take a minute to sprinkle a very generous amount of baking soda on the area of carpet you are going to clean. Do this as far in advance as possible. Since baking soda actually absorbs odors, instead of just masking them, the longer you let it sit the better.
Now, rather than putting one of those chemical filled commercial detergents in your carpet cleaner, fill the “Solution” compartment with white vinegar (if your cleaner already mixes the added solutions with water, there is no need to dilute it).
After you’ve let the baking soda sit for awhile, clean your carpets as normal! As you do, you should hear the faint fizzle of the vinegar and baking soda reacting, as it gets your carpet super clean!
