Use Mr. Clean in a Rug Doctor carpet shampooer. Cheaper than the brand name solution. $3 v/s $20. My carpets are off white. The color in this solution will NOT stain your carpet. See the treated side of the cola stain? I used Mr. Clean 'Gain' scented. My whole house smells like Gain dryers sheets! Use 1/2 cup of Mr. Clean per 2 gallons of hot water.
Homemade Carpet Shampoo - revised the recipe as follows for use in regular size Rug Doctor: 2 Tbls. Baking Soda, 2 Tbls. Borax, 2/3 cup White Distilled Vinegar. Be sure to read my review in the comment section.
Bissell Deep Clean Deluxe Cleaner 36Z9 Reviewed • News To Review -
Homemade carpet solution for a Rug Doctor. Mix hot water with 1 T Dawn, 1/2 cup Oxyclean stain spray, 1/2 cup of Borax. Pull the shampooer backwards very slowly for results like this. This is the spring after our wood furnace blew soot everywhere.
If you learn How to Clean Upholstered Furniture it is possible to keep your upholstery looking its best for a long time. Rug Doctor machines can be rented from your local supermarket or home improvement store for less than the cost of a professional cleaning service.
Good to keep for when you may need it - clean up pet pee stains, vinegar, peroxide and blue dawn. With Rug Doctor - lots of vinegar with water, 1 cup peroxide, 1 tsp blue dawn. Throw in gain for scent boost. After mostly dry, sprinkle baking soda, let dry and vacuum a few times. Good to know!
