Carpets are prone to a great many cleaning issues. This is because it’s easy for things to get spilled over. With children and pets at home, the carpet goes through a great deal of wear and tear. Calling in professional carpet cleaners might seem good every six months or so. However, when there is an emergency and you are short on time because you have guests coming over, the following carpet cleaning hacks can actually be life savers.
- You can easily remove a large number of stains with the help of an iron. The first process is to vacuum the carpet to get rid of dust or any extra particles. Once that’s done simply pour some water over the stain. Next take a towel and pour one part vinegar and three parts water over it. When it’s damp enough throw it over the dampened stain and heat the towel with the help of the iron. You would see the stain being slowly lifted up into the towel. When the stain is completely removed, stop using the iron.
- You can then freshen the carpet with the help of baking soda and essential oil solution. The stain removal can cause a damp smell to come off from the carpet. To have it smelling all fresh and clean, use sixteen ounces of baking soda and add fourteen to fifteen drops of essential oil to it. You can use lavender or orange based on your personal preference. Next pour the mixture into a shaker. Once it’s settled well, simply shake it on to the carpet every time you want to freshen it up.
- If you fear that the carpet is full of dust mites or mould you would need to use a deep cleaning solution to get rid of those. For making your own green cleaner. You can add three fourth cups of hydrogen per oxide and add to it one fourth cup of vinegar solution. Next add to it two tablespoons of dishwashing soap and a few drops of essential oil. Any time you want to deep clean your carpet, add this solution to a gallon of hot water and pour it all over the carpet. Make sure you don’t miss out a spot. If you feel you require more water you can use some more. But make sure you don’t complete submerge the carpet in water otherwise it would make it difficult to dry it off.
