How to Make Your Own Homemade Carpet Cleaner 1) Take your steam cleaning canister and fill with hot water. Fill it close to 2 inches under the fill line on the canister. 2) Add 1 tbsp. of laundry detergent 3) 1/4 cup of white vinegar 4) Add 1/4 cup of baking soda 5) Now just use your steam cleaner as you would normally and enjoy your own homemade carpet cleaner!
I always just use white vinegar to shampoo my carpets but must try this stain remover as well. Mix 1/4 cup salt, 1/4 cup borax and 1/4 cup vinegar, then apply this paste to deep stains or heavily soiled sections of carpet.
