First of all we should probably tackle stains. That is the main reason we need carpet cleaning tips and tricks right?

Just a note that you should always test any method on an inconspicuous area before using on the stain. Just click on any of the links in the list below and blast those stains!

A few products that I have purchased that have worked really well are below. I am listing them in the order with the best solutions at the top.
- Bissell Spotbot (got out stains that were years old!)
- Bissell Oxygen BOOST (add to any carpet cleaning machine for a boost of power)
- Resolve Carpet Stain Remover
- Bissell Stain Pre-Treat
As you can see, for the most part I love the Bissell line of products. No this is not sponsored. That is just what I have found that works in our home. Another issue that those of us with carpet face is deodorizing. I thought I would also include some links for homemade deodorizers. Give one or more of these a try!
I personally think these work just as well as the store bought versions and they are often a fraction of the price. That is a win win! If you are struggling with carpet cleaning, I hope a few of these ideas will give your efforts a boost. I would definitely give the homemade solutions a try first but if those do not work move onto the store bought powerhouses. You can get those stains out and have cleaner carpet! Trust me! I have used the Spotbot to get out stains that were years old! They will come out!
