Homemade Carpet Spot Cleaner: 4 cups warm water; 1/2 cup vinegar; 2-3 Tablespoons baking soda. Add the vinegar and baking soda to the warm water in a large bowl. Stir slightly and watch it fizz and foam. Dip a scrub brush into the mixture and scrub those spots in your carpet away. Let dry and then vacuum.
Did a kid or pet pee on your carpet and even though you have scrubbed you still can't get out the smell? try this on for size: baking soda and essential oils! I added about 20 drops of lemon to a canning jar full of baking soda. Cover with canning lid, shake to combine. Then poke holes in the top of the canning lid (mine are not pretty, hence no picture) shake, shake, shake on carpet. Let set for a few 30 minutes or longer and vacuum up! Smells amazing, cleans up the odor! I'm in love
