Homemade Carpet Shampoo

I am looking for a homemade carpet cleaner recipe.

Homemade Carpet Shampoo

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.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup lemon-scented ammonia
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons clear dish washing soap (non-moisturizer)
  • hot water

Directions

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)
