A carpet will suffer a high amount of abuse during its lifetime, with dirt, dust and stains (mostly caused by you), pet urine and other similar stuff negatively affecting its looks and durability. The truth is, most of the above problems are unavoidable but it doesn’t mean that you won’t have to clean it up though.
A good way to work around this issue is to make your own homemade carpet solution. Let us show you how:
Natural Carpet Cleaners
Making your own homemade natural carpet cleaner is not that difficult, you just need to have some stuff handy:
- Some baking powder
- Bay leaves (dried)
You mix up around 1/2 lb baking powder with 2.5 oz to 3.5 oz cornflour and add in the dried bay leaves, after crumbling them. Lastly, you should add a handful of potpourri (1.75 oz or so) for the smell and the fresh look.
Mix everything up in a covered container, shaking the blend thoroughly. Spill the newly created natural carpet cleaner on the area where the stain is and leave it overnight to meld in. In the morning, wipe it off clean and vacuum the area to get the residue off. Hopefully, your stain is now history!
