I am looking for a homemade carpet cleaner recipe.
By Georgiana from PA
An inexpensive alternative to the store-bought variety. To check for color-fastness: test a bit of cleaner on an inconspicuous area of the carpet before using the first time. Makes 1 gallon.
Add the first 2 ingredients into a large gallon-sized container. (I mix my directly in steam cleaner applicator).
Add water; enough to equal just shy of one gallon. Add dish liquid at the end. Shake or stir.
Follow steam-cleaner manufacturer's directions for operating instructions.
I use this recipe all the time, not only on rugs, but furniture, too. If I have any left over, I put it in a spray bottle and use it as a general cleaner. (02/01/2010)
