Make your carpet as good as new
Before you head out to buy cleaning supplies, walk to your pantry, and you’ll find several natural cleaners readily available for use. For carpet cleaning, most people use white vinegar as it’s cheaper.
However, if you want instant results without bearing the astringent vinegar odor, apple cider vinegar is the best alternative.
Although a bit more expensive, it’s quick, easy on your nasal receptors, and a multipurpose cleaner.
If you want to save money and time, you can make a vinegar cleaning solution at home for the steam cleaner.
While vinegar is the main component, you need a little more to clean your carpets effectively.
Once everything is ready, you can start cleaning the carpet in the order mentioned below.
Use your stick or upright vac to remove debris and larger particles from the carpet. If you’ve put furniture on the carpet, make sure to clean around their legs too.
Alternatively, you can remove the furniture from the carpet during cleaning.
Pour this mixture into the steam cleaner’s receptacle.
Repeat this step until you’ve covered the whole carpet. Besides being a cleaning agent, vinegar is also a disinfectant, so it will effectively remove microbes residing in your carpets.
Although apple cider vinegar is much safer than other cleaners, such as chlorine and hydrogen peroxide, there are still a few warnings.
Although water alone works fine for deep cleaning a carpet, I wouldn’t suggest it if your carpet is soiled. In such cases, you need something with full strength, like vinegar.
While white vinegar makes a perfect addition to a washing machine full of stained clothes, apple cider vinegar can clean and disinfect a carpet at once.
