The Magical Carpet Cleaning Solution
If you have children, you know about stains. If you have pets, you know about stains. If you spend any time at all within the four walls of your house, you know about stains. But there’s actually a combination of everyday household products that can help you stay on top of your cleaning. In a large measuring cup, mix 1 cup hydro green peroxide, 1/2 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup Dawn soap and a 4-5 drops of essential oils. You can pick your favorite or try peppermint or eucalyptus. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle and you’re all set.
Now find the ickiest, nastiest stain you can find. If you can adjust the nozzle on the spray bottle, make it pretty intense so the solution will get down into the carpet fibers. Spray it liberally, let it sit for a minute, then use a microfiber cloth to scrub from the edges inward. You’ll be surprised by how much work the solution itself does, so you probably won’t have to use too much elbow grease.
Look at the results. This is maybe 10 minutes after spraying on the solution. The dish detergent tackles the grease, hydrogen peroxide is a bleaching agent, the acid in the vinegar dissolves the grit and grime and the essential oils help counteract the strong smells of the cleaners. Honestly, I don’t know if we’ll use any commercial cleaners again - not with results like this!
