Home Made Rug Cleaner Worked For Us!

I am sure you have seen it. Everyone on Pinterest is talking about a rug cleaner that uses

Baking Soda
Peroxide 
and dish soap. 


This terrible stain is in Goddess' bedroom. One day about 3 years ago she got a stomach virus after consuming her favorite chocolate hence this terrible stain! We hate it and used at least 10 different cleaners over the years and finally put a rug over it. I shook up the peroxide, baking soda and dish soap in a spray bottle for a loooong time. The Baking Soda takes a long time to dissolve but when we did...and scrubbed the stain with a toothbrush...we were surprised.

I cannot believe how long we had to look at that ugly stain! It looks amazing now.

I hadn't heard about this for carpets, I use this combination for my kids school shirts. It's gets out stains on their uniform shirts.

I haven't heard about this but would love to know the ratio as I have a couple of stains where my dog threw up that I have not been able to remove. Thanks for the lead.

Brilliant advice Maria thanks! I can't wait to try this myself! I am trying to work on my carpets and rugs at the minute after going through a ton of frugal blogs and trying my hand at doing more for myself instead. I've been using carpet cleaners for a while - the last were carpet cleaner solihull - they're brilliant I won't lie! Now I'd like to try my hand at it myself, but with 3 kids, 2 cats and a house rabbit I need all the help I can get. Thanks a lot!

I had one particularly bad carpet that I just couldn't get clean - I ended up using carpet cleaning sutton coldfield because they don't use harsh chemicals and do a great job, but for a lot of carpets I can use your advice in this post so thank you :)

Just after washing carpeting, keep up normal schedule servicing on them to keep them looking for in best condition. This includes vacuum cleaning, making sure that you avoid discoloration by developing some recommendations, like as no food items and beverages on the carpeting and dealing with areas or leaking immediately with identify washing methods.carpet cleaning tips
