Homemade Tricks For Cleaning Carpets

Do you have rugs at home?  Do you spend time cleaning the rugs to keep them in good condition?

Who else and who least always enjoy at home that beautiful carpet in the living room, the same one that children or pets dirty every day.

You may have one in your room, or you may be an admirer of them and practically have the house “lined.”

Not only do they catch odours, but they are a more than ideal setting for the dreaded mites to occupy and allergies to appear.

What can we do? Do not worry, and today we give you simple remedies.

1.: Cleaning Long Pile Rugs

They are very cute, fun and they love both children and our pets. That is why we must take special care to wash them more frequently and take care that those synthetic strands do not come off. They could be eaten by our dogs, or younger children, and have a serious problem.

Here is what we should do to take care of long pile rugs:

What do I need?

  • 50 ml of white vinegar
  • 250 ml of water

How should I do it?

  • This product is ideal for cleaning, removing germs and disinfecting. Don’t be afraid of the vinegar odour remaining after cleaning, because it won’t. The moment it dries, the odour will volatilize.
  • It is not a matter of “soaking” the carpet completely, but of spraying over it. To do this, the first thing we will do is hang it somewhere outdoors, ideal if you have a balcony or terrace. If not, find a room where you can open the windows and hang the rug so it can give it air.
  • Hit it with poker to remove any dust, hair, small items of trash or dirt it may have. Then, mix the white vinegar and water in a spray bottle and spray the mat with this preparation. Then you just have to let it dry. Allow the air to give you about 3 hours.

2. How To Clean A Bad-Smelling Carpet

Surely you have at home that older carpet, the one that always emits a smell that makes the room smell of old age or neglected home.

What do I need?

  • 250 g of salt. The amount is approximate since, ideally, you can sprinkle the entire surface of the carpet with common table salt.

How should I do it?

  • It is interesting to know that salt is great not only for removing “stubborn” odors but also for removing moisture stains. To do this, the first things we will do is spread the carpet and, as we have indicated before, sprinkle it with salt.
  • You will have to roll it up little by little so that it is very close and with hardly any spaces. Let it work throughout the day. Afterwards, you only have to use the vacuum cleaner to remove all the salt, dirt and bad smell.
  • If you really can’t get the smell out then you might need to call a professional carpet cleaning company.
