How to clean a very dirty carpet

Did you know that a very dirty carpet could pollute the air quality in a room and increase the risks of contracting allergies and asthma? To prevent this from happening, it is essential to thoroughly clean all cloths in your home, including carpets. To do this, you should use white vinegar. This product is the miracle solution for all damages done to your home furniture. Indeed, to successfully get rid of resistant stains, white vinegar will be your best ally.

To do this, mix a few tablespoons of white vinegar with dishwashing soap, apply it to the area to be cleaned and scrubbed. To finish, rinse with clear water. This preparation allows you to sanitize your carpet and to detach resistant stains.

You can even deep-clean your carpet

For more regular maintenance, there are other tips to make your carpet look brand-new. If the stains are not too stubborn, you can pour lukewarm water with a few drops of dishwashing liquid soap onto your carpet. Using a sponge, rub the mixture into your carpet. It is also possible to use shaving cream. As unusual as it may sound, apply directly to the area, wash and rub.

Like white vinegar, baking soda is a rather cheap product that works wonders. You don't need to bring multiple products into the mix, just use baking soda and fizzy water. Pour the mixture all over the stained area, leave it on for 30 minutes and vacuum it up. You won't believe your eyes, the result is spectacular and your carpet is good as new!
