    Default Homemade Carpet Cleaner & Deodorizer

    Carpet Shampoo Solution:

    1 cup oxiclean*
    1 cup febreeze*
    1 cup distilled white vinegar
    *The homemade versions work fabulously!

    Pour contents into shampooer tub and mix with hot water to fill tub completely. This will not only clean your carpets it will also deodorize. It will smell slightly of vinegar until the carpet is dry.

    Be sure to test spot with the solution just to be safe, however this should be safe for ALL carpets.

    I have actually used my homemade laundry soap as a carpet cleaner and deodorizer and I have never seen carpet so clean or smell so good.

    Does this work on the "black/dirt ring" that you get along the edge of the room from using pro cleaners. I've tried to get it out myself but nothing seems to work.
    - Does it spot clean set in stains?
    - Does it work on water damage on berber carpets?
    - How do you dilute it (ratios) for doing spot cleaning and "the ring" cleaning?

    Sounds like a great combo and we have everything here already. Thanks for the great advice!

    I have found variety of way for residential carpet cleaning as its the time of winter carpet cleaning can also be done by snow. Just put the carpets on the snow for 4-5 hr then gently vacuum. Its just simple as never before

    Forgive me, but how does vacuuming your carpet after they set in the snow going to get them clean?? We have Snow Fleas in our area and that will likely get them infested, rather than clean.
