This one is the home made carpet cleaning solution which I uses
2 tablespoon liquid tide laundry detergent
1/4 cup awesome cleaner
1 spoon oxyclean
1 teaspoon downy fabric softener
Hot water one gallon
Mix together in a large bowl the tide, awesome cleaner, oxiclean and the downy. Then add in hot water gently so you don’t make too many bubbles.
Mix gently until oxyclean is dissolved. Pour in a gallon sized jug for storage.
This recipe makes this a concentrated mix. So add in only a little bit of this solution each time you add water to your carpet cleaning machine.

I just utilize it for a long time. Be attentive about completely cleaning vacuum carpet all the time. If they don’t dry out suitable you can make shape issues or harm to the subfloor under.

I haven’t utilized it for a long time but in future, I will definitely use it for doing area rug cleaning.This is a really great tip, thank you for sharing, it’s so much better than paying a ridiculous amount of money for carpet cleaning services.
In the past I’ve waited until someone tries to sell me a rug shampooer lol!
