I add a few sprinkles of lavender essential oil to the water and vinegar. There is no vinegar smell at all, just lavender.
I've never tried vinegar, but bet it would work good. I always add about 1/8-1/4 c. peroxide to the cleaner I use (I use Resolve) and it seems to help clean better, at least to me. I read it somewhere one time, and thought I'd try it. I haven't cleaned my carpet without it since.

I agree with Omanana.I also read recently to just use hot water. I'm due for a carpet clean and usually do it twice over so I'm going to do the hot water first then follow with the vinegar.

I use white vinegar, 1 cup per tank of warm water.

I have a Hoover F7427-900 Steam Vac Dual V Turbo Power Carpet Cleaner. I need to know if I should I be filling the cleaning solution tank with straight vinegar, and the water reservoir of course with water, or do I put it all in together in the water reservoir? I've never used vinegar before. Also do I use something with the vinegar to make it smell good, if so, what?
