Our first solution uses lavender essential oil. If you don’t have any, try our article on how to buy essential oils inexpensively. Then add the following ingredients to a spray bottle:
- 1 cup distilled white vinegar
- 2 cups water
- 2 tsp salt
- 15 drops lavender essential oil
Shake the mixture well to mix, then spray on your carpet liberally. Allow to dry, then vacuum your carpet. Hopefully your stain is long gone. If not, read on and try one of our other solutions for carpet cleaning.
Mix a few drops of lemon essential oil with baking soda. Apply to the stain and let it set for at least a few hours. Mix distilled white vinegar equally with water and spray on the baking soda. The spot will fizz with the chemical reaction. Lay a rag over the stain and press to help remove. You may have to repeat this a few times on stubborn stains. Hopefully you will reveal a new looking carpet with no stains after this application.
No luck? Next on our list of homemade carpet cleaning solutions uses things that almost everyone will have on hand at all times. Mix ¾ cup of peroxide, 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 1 squirt of dish washing liquid. Scrub the stain with the mixture and rinse well.
Finally, if you have a stubborn stain that is not gone, try mixing corn starch and distilled white vinegar together until it forms a paste. Apply the paste to the stain and allow it to dry. Scrape with a knife and use a vacuum to remove the excess.
