Cleaning is a weekly- if not daily- necessity of home ownership. And if you’re like me, you will take all the tips and tricks you can get. Carpet can be one of the trickiest things to clean. And if you have pets, you know how dirty that carpet can get, and how hard it is to keep it clean. You want to avoid smell and stains so that you house is clean and fresh. Here are some great tip for cleaning carpets. Regular vacuuming with a good quality vacuum is a must to get rid of all the loose dirt- even dirt you can’t see. And if you have a spill, do not try to clean it with products designed to need rinsing, such as laundry soap, or products designed to clean hard surfaces. They won’t get the stains out of the carpet property. Instead, use a cup of water mixed with just one drop of dish soap and a tablespoon of white vinegar. Never pour it on the spot, but dip a towel into the solution and blot. Don’t scrub either, as you can damage the carpet fibres. If a carpet is Scotchguarded, any spills will be much easier to remove and much less likely to result in permanent staining.
