Pin It Now!
A good friend of mine found herself without carpet shampoo a few days ago. Her carpet desperately needed cleaning and she had a block of time to accomplish the task, so she went on a quest to find a homemade recipe for shampoo. She found a recipe which she tweaked a bit and it worked great on her carpets. If this worked for her (she has three boys and two dogs) it would probably work for anyone!
Here is the recipe she used:
1 1/2 scoops Oxyclean
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4/ cup Febreze (or other generic spray)
Mix together with a gallon of hot water and add to machine. Any vinegar smell will fade away quickly, although my friend didn't notice any smell at all. She said this worked great on dog stains and odors.
I can't wait to try it!
