Vinegar and Ammonia Solution for Cleaning Carpets

Removing carpet stains is indeed easy, especially now that there are home ingredients you can use to remove it. If you have vinegar in your kitchen or ammonia somewhere in your house, you can start removing those stain now.

Vinegar

What most people don’t know is that vinegar is not just good for cooking, it is also a great solution for carpet cleaning. It can easily remove stains from berries, alcoholic beverages, soda, dairy products, wet paint, gravy and excrement.

Using a vinegar solution is the quickest and cheapest way to remove a carpet stain. Since vinegar is a popular kitchen condiment, most people can tolerate its smell although there are some who might not be able to withstand its smell.

Just add ¼ teaspoon of vinegar to a 960 ml of water. Use a spray bottle for your solution. Spray your mixture directly to the part of the carpet with stain. Using a sponge or paper towel, scrub the stain away. Repeat the procedure until the stain is completely removed.

Once you are done removing your carpet’s stain, you can use a soap or dishwashing liquid to remove the smell of vinegar. The strong smell also helps in removing the smell left by pets on a carpet.

Ammonia

Moreover, you often see chocolate stains, coffee, blood, tea and wine drops and even vomit. These stains also emit a strong odour, so you will need a stronger solution to remove it, such as ammonia.

Simply add 15ml of ammonia to a 240 mL of water. Use a spray bottle for your solution. Spray your mixture directly to the part of the carpet with stain. Using a sponge or paper towel, scrub the stain away. Repeat the procedure until the stain is completely removed.

Although the steps in using vinegar and ammonia solution are almost the same, there are things to consider before using an ammonia solution. Before cleaning with ammonia solution put on your cleaning gloves and mask (if you have one). Once the carpet looks good as new, use liquid detergent to remove the strong ammonia odour.
