When you don't have time to shampoo and wait for the carpet to dry, make your own dry carpet cleaner. This page contains dry carpet cleaner recipes.
I have found that by mixing a ratio of 5 lbs white cornmeal and 2 lbs of cornstarch together will make a very nice carpet cleaner. I sprinkle it on using my small mesh strainer and scrub it in with a long handled brush. Wait at least one hour, 2 is better; and then vacuum it up. I was using an expensive dry cleaner and I found that this was better. No chemicals either. Safe to walk on and for pets.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a tried and true homemade DRY carpet cleaner?

Where do I get lemon essential oil, and is this just for scent? Can I use just plain lemon juice? Thanks
