Carpet Cleaning Formulas

The following household formulas will keep you prepared for  most carpet spot and stain emergencies.

Please note: We do not recommend that you use drycleaning solvents, as these may damage the fibre or the backing of the carpet. Many stains where solvents are required are best left to a professional cleaner.

Formula 1

1 teaspoon of Neutral Synthetic Soap less detergent (softly)

1 litre of warm water
1 teaspoon of white vinegar

Apply directly to the stained area. Gently agitate the wet area with a clean, white, unstarched cloth. Allow to dwell for several minutes. Blot the stain with a damp cloth. With another clean warm damp cloth, sponge in the direction of the pile, then blot the remaining moisture with a super absorbent dry cloth or paper towel.

Formula 2

1 teaspoon of non-alkaline Biological washing powder (Drive)
250 mls of luke warm water

Apply the solution with an eye dropper, then sponge cloths. Blot up the remaining moisture with a damp cloth. Sponge the area several times again. Sponge dry with a super absorbent dry cloth or paper towel.

Formula 3

1 teaspoon of white vinegar
3 teaspoons of warm water

Apply the solution with an eye dropper directly onto the stain.

Gently agitate, leave for 15 minutes. Blot up the moisture, then sponge again several times with a dampened cloth. Then sponge dry using a super absorbent cloth or paper towel.
