Homemade Recipes for High-Powered Carpet Stain Fighters

Published on August 15th, 2017

If you own a home with carpet in Naperville, you’ve surely had to deal with getting tough stains out of that carpet. Some are tougher than others, and in some cases, you might be tempted to enlist the help of a professional carpet cleaning service. But that can be expensive, and there’s actually quite a bit you can do to get a stain out before bringing in the big guns.

For anyone with carpet in Naperville, we’ve compiled this list of three stain removers that you can make at home with common household products.

Before you do anything though, make sure you remove as much excess liquid from the stain as possible. Always blot at the stain, don’t rub, and try to avoid spreading the stain by using a fresh cloth.

  1. Club Soda

For the dreaded red wine spill, club soda works wonders. It also works well on juice spills like Kool-Aid. It’s best to get to work fast because this inexpensive carpet cleaner works most effectively on fresh stains.

  1. Baking Soda Mix

By combining baking soda with dishwashing liquid, white vinegar and warm water mixed in a spray bottle, you’ll be armed with a powerful stain fighter.

  1. A Scented White Vinegar Mix

White vinegar, salt, and your preferred scent of essential oil will fight stains and provide the pleasant smell of your choice.

Keep these household items on hand, be quick to act and you’ll always be ready to fight stains.

Remember, when you or someone else has spilled, always try to be as quick as possible. The longer a stain sits, the longer it has to set deep into your carpet in Naperville.

Have you done everything you can to fight stains and your carpet still looks a bit ratty?
