Spring is already here and it’s probably the best time to start deep cleaning your home. Everybody knows how homes have been closed up during the winter months. Sure, you may have done a few vacuuming once in a while, but was it enough? With all windows closed to keep you warm, who knows what else might have stayed inside your homes.
Well your best bet would be dust mites, bed bugs and other allergens that simple vacuuming could not get rid of. Add to that, you might even encounter some carpet stains from the foot traffic and some moldy smell. With a little help from your trusted cooking essentials, you can spruce up your carpets in an instant.
When it’s the moldy smell you want to get rid of, you’ll do well with baking soda and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. We all know that baking soda is a natural deodorizer and it does not hurt to add your favorite scent in the process.
Common Carpet Cleaning Methods
To do this, use about 500 grams of baking soda and add a few drops of the essential oil, mix until well absorbed. Each time you want to get rid of the moldy smell, simply shake some of the scented baking soda on your carpet, leave it for a few minutes and vacuum. You’ll be surprised how good it smells after.
Vinegar is another trusted kitchen essential that can make your carpet cleaning simpler and easier. A simple vinegar solution ( mix ed one parts vinegar with three parts water) goes a long way on carpet stains. Simply dab a little of the vinegar solution on the stained carpet and the next step is like working on steam to remove stains. Simply run an iron on low heat over the damp towel and you should see the stain lift up as it passes through the iron. Work on it until all or most of the stains have been removed.
You need to understand that there are hundreds of different types of carpets. One cleaning solution may not be applicable to the other, which is why extra caution should be observed before using any of these carpet cleaning hacks.
