Homemade Foaming Carpet Cleaner for Spots


Kids and pets are tough on carpets and sometimes you need a great spot cleaner you can count on to remove tough stains.  For years I purchased cleaners like Resolve to remove stains when, unknowingly, I had everything I needed at home – and it is AMAZING!!!

The days of purchasing expensive stain removers are over!  When you try this simple and quick solution, you’ll be sold.  Stains just disappear.

Foaming Carpet Stain Remover

1 Tablespoon Vinegar
1/2 Teaspoon Ammonia
3 Tablespoons Dawn Dish soap
3/4 Cup Water
Empty Foam Soap Container

Add all ingredients to your foam soap container and swirl to mix.  Dispense foam directly onto stained carpet.  Wait a few seconds, then lightly scrub the carpet with a damp white cloth.

* Personally I like to rinse the area again with a wet white cloth to remove any soap residue that could attract dirt.

Stains are gone!

    You can’t clean with ammonia if you have dog and cats. The ammonia attracts cats and dogs to the area cleaned where they may remark the area by peeing there.
