I am looking for a homemade recipe for carpet cleaner.

Homemade Carpet Shampoo

Carpet stains: Mix equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray directly on stain, let sit for several minutes, and clean with a brush or sponge using warm soapy water. For a heavy duty carpet cleaner, mix 1/4 cup each of salt, borax, and vinegar. Rub paste into carpet and leave for a few hours. Vacuum.


Here is where I found this information:

Also, if you are using a steam cleaner, you can use Tide or another liquid laundry detergent to clean and freshen carpets. (05/29/2009)

Homemade Carpet Shampoo

Mix up around 1/2 lb baking powder with 2.5 ounces to 3.5 ounces cornflower and add in dried bay leaves, after crumbling them. To add a nice and fresh smell to it, you should add a handful of potpourri, around 1.75 oz.

Thoroughly shake the whole thing in a covered container. Spill the homemade carpet cleaner on the stain and leave it there during the night to meld in. Wipe it off in the next morning, clean, and vacuum the spot to get the residue off.
