#1 – Create your own cleaning solution.
Try to make your own cleaning solution, here are some ideas:
Baking soda and vinegar. Soak the stain with vinegar, then sprinkle baking soda on top. Cover the area, wait 1-2 days, then scoop off any remaining baking soda and wipe the area clean.
Dish soap. Add ¼ teaspoon dishwashing detergent to one cup of warm water. Spray on the stain and repeat as needed until the stain is gone.
Ammonia. Mix 2 tablespoons of ammonia and one cup of water. Treat the stain, and repeat until it’s gone.
Hydrogen peroxide. Combine 4 tablespoons hydrogen peroxide with 2 tablespoons of warm water and a couple drops of dish soap. Let the solution sit on the stain for about 10 minutes, then rinse and wipe dry.
When you make a homemade solution, be sure to test it on a small area of your carpet before using it everywhere. Always gently blot or scoop up as much of the stain as possible before treating it.
