All Purpose Carpet Cleaner Recipe
For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:
– 3 teaspoons dishwashing liquid
– 1/4 cup ammonia
– 1/4 cup white vinegar
– 500 ml tap water
All you have to do is start mixing all the ingredients in a large bucket until you combine them very well.
Then, for using this DIY solution, you will need to sponge it into the carpet with a clean cloth. Thus, make sure you do not saturate the carpet with it. For an even more effective cleaning, you should also scrub with a soft bristle all over the carpet. That way, you will make sure the solution is spread everywhere. Lastly, let it sit for 10 minutes before wiping it so it can act on the carpet.
After 10 minutes, simply wipe over with a clean damp cloth and allow to air dry. To get it dry, it would be recommended to take the carpet outside. However, if you cannot do this since your carpet must be big or heavy, you can just open the windows to let the air get inside, drying your brand new and clean carpet.
Moreover, if you have allergies, don’t worry. I also have a recipe for a homemade carpet cleaner for allergy sufferers. Check it out, here are the ingredients you will need:
– 1 bar of Sunlight Soap
– 2 liters boiling water
– 2 tablespoons cream of Tartar
Therefore, you will need to grate the bar of Sunlight soap into a half-filled bucket of warm water. Then, mix two liters of boiling water with the cream of tartar and pour this mixture over the bucket with soap. Mix again very well to incorporate all the ingredients.
When using this, you should also make sure you don’t saturate the carpet with this DIY solution. Moreover, let it air dry and use a clean cloth to simply soak any excess solution out of the carpet. Then, open all the windows to allow air circulation to dry the carpet.
There you have it, a great natural solution you can DIY right at home and will be even more efficient than any store-bought products. Happy carpet cleaning!
