The Simple Steps to Eco-Friendly Cleaning your Carpets
Not only does cleaning your carpets the eco-friendly way not mean driving anywhere or handling any heavy equipment, you don’t have to handle any harsh chemical cleaning solutions either.
1. Tackle Spot Stains
Every carpet has higher traffic areas where there are more likely to be spots and stains that need special attention. You can find the solution in your medicine cabinet.
Shaving cream (not gel) is a great spot cleaner for carpets. Just spray stains and spots with shaving cream and let it sit for half an hour. Then just wipe it away with a clean cloth. It even works on grease spots. You should first test the cream in an unobtrusive spot to make sure it won’t harm your carpets.
2. Clean Your Carpets
Next, liberally sprinkle baking soda all over your carpets. A 9’ x 12’ rug should take about a box of baking soda. Leave it for at least 10 minutes, vacuum up all the baking soda.
Just like that, your carpets will be looking clean and smelling fresh. If you would like to start using eco-friendly cleaning all around the house, and you don’t actually want to do the cleaning, contact us here at Mona Eco-Friendly Cleaning Services.
