It is obvious why many people neglect the carpets in their hectic lifestyle. Simply imagine -kids, work, pets, cooking, cleaning and there is no time for anything else. So people prefer to take time and spend more minutes with their favourite people or for themselves than in cleaning the carpets.
But let’s face it! Sooner or later, you will have to take some time for your long neglected carpet full of stains and spots. Obviously, you cannot postpone this duty any longer, as it has become an unhygienic place that spreads health hazards. And if you do not intend to hire local carpet cleaning professionals, then information below will be quite useful for you. Let us provide you with a recipe of all-natural carpet cleaning solution that is quick and easy to do.
What does it contain?
There are no costly or hard-to-find ingredients. All you need is white vinegar, salt, and some lavender essential oil.
Why we use these ingredients in the recipe?
Because the white vinegar successfully removes the stains, even the tough ones. If you have to deal with urine stains from pets or kids, vinegar will not only tackle the stain but it will also neutralize the bad odour. To use it safely on the fabric, the vinegar should be diluted with water.
If you have to deal with very tough stains like wine or juice stains, you can use salt instead. Simply pour it over the spot to absorb the liquid as much as possible. If all the salt becomes wet, pour some more on the top, ensuring that the upper layer is dry and then leave it for 15 minutes until it dries completely. The liquid will be absorbed by the salt and then you can safely vacuum it.
For better coping with different harmful bacteria and allergens and for more deodorizing effect, lavender essential oil has to be used. It is completely safe for pets and kids and will do a great job on your carpet.
What is the recipe?
Mix 2 cups of water with 1 cup of white vinegar. Then, add 2 tsp salt along with 15 drops of 100% pure lavender essential oil. If you prefer another aroma, you can choose another essential oil of your choice.
How to apply?
It is easy. Just generously spread this cleaning solution all over the carpet’s surface and let it dry completely before vacuuming it.
Preparing the stains
If you have to deal with a fresh stain, act immediately by blotting the liquid first. Start from edges of the spill toward the centre to prevent its spreading to new fibres. Do not rub the stains. As soon as you blot the liquid, apply the all-natural cleaning solution or try to use the ingredients directly as described above.
If you have to deal with a solid stain, ensure to pick up the maximum amount possible and then apply the carpet cleaning solution described above.
