Use Ammonia for Carpet Cleaning

Keep carpet cleaning simple. I have a small steam vacuum. I have always had trouble rinsing out soap residue on carpet areas even when using very little soap in the cleaner. Recently I tried adding a little ammonia to the water instead of soap. I found that it did a terrific job cleaning, produced no ammonia odor, dried very quickly, and required no rinsing. All of which made my job much easier. I would highly recommend this procedure.

Ammonia is also great for removing stains from clothing! As always, try in an inconspicuous area first.

I'm trusting that this will work, because I'm about to clean my filthy carpet traffic paths that aren't covered with boxes, and furniture. I am wondering what you mean by "a little" to how much water? God bless you. : )

If you have cats or dogs I don't recommend this! Even a slight ammonia odor remaining in the carpet might attract them to pee pee because the ammonia smell will make them think it's their poddy area :-o

This is great, but I'd advise using NON-Sudsing ammonia.

I would do a test in a hidden area to check to see what the ammonia might do to the color of your carpet.

What about the ammonia fumes? Even a little bit mixed in water can be over-powering.

Make sure that you don't use any bleach with ammonia.
