Simple Carpet-Cleaning Solutions: Baking Soda or Hydrogen Peroxide

I'm not sure how many people out there are as sensitive to the fragrances found in most carpet-cleaning solutions as I am, but I was happy to discover recently that you can easily find alternatives by doing a simple internet search.

The two I was happiest to find were one article on using baking soda, and another on using hydrogen peroxide. I've used baking soda before and was pretty happy with it, but I'm always glad to get more instruction. Baking Soda is included in this link: Clean Carpets without Dangerous Chemicals.

I am a little wary of the "sprinkle on, vacuum off" method, though, so finding out from a friend recently that you can use Hydrogen Peroxide sounded great. This one, "Using Hydrogen Peroxide," mentions combining Hydrogen Peroxide with simple Castille Soap, but I watched a friend clean stains off her carpets recently using simply water and hydrogen peroxide alone. Just make sure you follow the instructions for the correct ratios of hydrogen peroxide to water.

Hydrogen peroxide works wonders on carpet. I was changing my son's diaper a while back when he pooped (tmi, but it was runny enough that it literally shot a long way out and some ended up on the very light colored carpet we have).

I also googled how to clean carpets and found instructions for using hydrogen peroxide. It didn't happen immediately, but the stain lightened quite a bit, which was satisfactory for me. But by the next morning, it was completely gone. Best part was the poop smell was gone, and it didn't smell like medicine or fluffy flowers, either.

Most spills can be cleaned up without harsh chemicals.

Another great natural carpet cleaner is a white towel and some hot water.

Carpet Cleaning isn't rocket science. But it's always better to use safe products that you can find at the grocery store.

I've been using hydrogen peroxide on my carpet for years and it works great! The carpet remains stain-free and has no foul odors as well. But from time to time, my family opts to have professional carpet cleaning (Naperville-based) done to protect my kids from allergens and any bacteria. I think for families with children and pets, it's highly recommended to at least once in a while have thorough carpet cleaning. Naperville, Illinois has the most amazing and affordable cleaning services I've tried.

Carpets provide better insulation than others so be sure to get a carpet with a higher density if this is an important factor for your needs. Absolutely fine and true!

Love the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide methods for those looking for DIY carpet cleaning methods. Nothing is as good as hiring professionals like rug cleaning Portland though.
