Carpet Cleaning Solution

I should be butchering chickens this week...but I'm not. It always seems like a good idea until you actually have to butcher them...
Anyway, I did get the carpet cleaned. I have had several Bissell carpet cleaners ever since we have had dogs and cats in the house because while I keep the dogs on flea prevention, the fleas still get in the house and all the spray in the world will not get rid of fleas like a carpet cleaner can, PLUS..unfortunately we have not had much luck training Suzie and the livingroom has to be cleaned on a regular basis.
This is the current model of carpet cleaner I have
and it has always worked pretty good, however, the cleaning solution is fairly expensive. We started making our own solution a few years ago and never bought any again. It is so simple.

To a gallon jug add :

1/4 cup laundry soap (liquid works best and the better laundry soap, the better it works)
1 cup white vinegar
2 tsp. baking soda

Fill the rest of the jug with water and shake it up. Fill your cleaning solution container completely with this solution instead of just filling it to the mark with solution like you usually would. Works great.

    1. I don't know but they are long over due. The outside temps have been running right at 100 F for several weeks now so that is the excuse I am using. I hate to even go outside to feed them let alone spend several hours out there butchering.

  2. Carpeted homes can be quite high-maintenance, and it's really not advisable to have your furry pets stay inside, since their furs will stick to the carpet, giving you an even tougher time cleaning it. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing your DIY carpet cleaning solution. This will come in handy to those who are struggling with carpet cleaning. Good day!

  9. Wow! Never would have thought that making a carpet cleaning solution would be so easy and cheap. You are going to end up saving me hundreds of dollars in the long run over all that store bought stuff that is probably just the same ingredients just marked up a lot.
