DIY Carpet Cleaners
Source: Healthy Home 2008, Spring 2008
- Sprinkle baking soda on carpets, wait 15 minutes, then vacuum.
- Attend to spills as quickly as possible by blotting the wet area with clean, white cotton towels.
- Continue until nearly dry.
- If necessary, apply a spot-cleaning solution of clear dishwashing liquid and water (about 1/4 teaspoon per quart). Rinse well and blot to dry.
