5 tips for Cleaning Carpets


I have four kids. Therefore I have messy carpets. I am not a fan of cleaning carpets, especially when the spots don’t tend to stay away. Don’t you hate that?I want a green choice carpet cleaning, and am seriously considering calling in the big guns, but this weekend I am going to be trying out a few home methods that I found on Pinterest.

How to get Kool-Aid out of Carpets

How to get Kool-Aid out of carpetsWe don’t drink a lot of Kool-Aid around these parts, but when we do, or any other colored drink it always ends up on the floor. I have that same color carpet as that picture there from eHow Home and about 3 spots that are a little smaller than that one that I will be working on getting out tomorrow.

How to Get the Smell out of Carpets

How to make your carpet smell fresh

I really need to try this in my car. We have a funky smell that no matter how many times we scrub and pay for details…it just won’t go away. Maybe you shouldn’t lose a full open bottle of soy sauce on the way home from a dinner party and find the empty bottle weeks later under your seat. Not saying that’s what happened…but yes, that’s what happened. This Eco Friendly Chemical Free Carpet Fresh recipe from Craft Gossip is going on my list of things to try.

Cleaning Crayon out of the Carpet

How to clean crayons out of the carpet

My four year old is infamous for his art work all over my walls and carpets and nothing can seem to stop him from expressing himself. This kid can sniff a crayon out like nobody’s business. You leave him alone for 30 seconds and you have a masterpiece of wax imprinted on the floor. I think it’s about time to give him a fresh canvas with this tip from mom.me.

Now this tip from Lizzy Writes is a tip I have used many many times and I’m telling you it is MAGIC! I can get the stains out all over the place with this baby. When I have a little spot or mess of spots like those above, I pull this out and they are gone in a matter of minutes.

I will probably have to hire the professionals here in the next month or two,(you should have your carpets cleaned once a year, or more depending on amount of traffic). It is nice though to have a full arsenal of tips and tricks to get those annoying spots between visits to keep carpets looking good.

    Great tips!!! I have another great carpet cleaning tip. As the proud mama of 4 rescue dogs, we get it all. One of the best stain/odor removers I have found so far is a 1 part Baking Soda, 1 part Dawn Dish Soap (The blue kind), and 2 parts Hydrogen Peroxide. Mix it together until all the lumps of baking soda are gone, scrub, leave for an hour and then clean spot (I use my shampooer to clean up the spot afterwards, but warm water and some rags would be useful as well). Recently, my husband spilled a cup of coffee (on our white bedroom rug) and this same solution worked perfect.

    Generally, I am mixing 1/2 cup Dawn, 1/2 cup baking soda, and 1 cup peroxide! :)

    PS. You would only want to use this on light colored carpets, fabrics!
