Make Your Own Carpet Cleaner

There are two good reasons to use your own carpet cleaner instead of commercial one. The first is that you will save money as the ingredients you need to make your own carpet cleaning solution are far less expensive than the commercial cleaners. And second, you will preserve the non-toxic environment of your home since the ingredients included in the solution are natural and free of chemicals.

It is really not hard to make your own carpet cleaner, just follow these instructions recommended by carpet cleaning Clapham team to get you carpet clean!
  1. Pour a half gallon of water into a bucket, then add a half cup of distilled white vinegar and a quarter cup of baking soda to the water. Use a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients together. A paste-like solution should be formed if you done everything properly.
  2. Dip a scrub brush into the solution, and begin applying the mixture to the entire carpet by starting at the far end of the room and making your way to the doorway. Rub harder on any stains, but not so much to damage your carpet.
  3. Let the solution dry on the carpet, then vacuum it up. Your carpet should now be clean and fresh smelling with no remaining residue from your cleaner.
You can use ammonia instead of white vinegar when making the solution, but be aware that the ammonia has strong odor that you may not bear. Carpet cleaning Clapham recommends testing the solution on a hidden area before applying it to the entire carpet to make sure it won't cause discolouration.
