Homemade Carpet Steam Cleaner


I wish this was a post about a miracle worker…’cause I have some gross carpets. I was researching ways to get rid of set-in carpet stains and came across this sort of do-it-yourself steam cleaning method. I bet this way would work for a stain not quite so set in as my carpet stains, because it actually did work….it just didn’t leave my stains any less noticeable. I thought it was useful, though, for, ya know, future carpets that aren’t quite as sad as mine.

I found this idea on apartmenttherapy.com

I used:

  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup peroxide
  • 3/4 cup water
