Hate Carpet Cleaning ? NO MORE-I Have A Secret Weapon

Dirty Carpets....notice the clean spot in the center of the circle....Oh so sad.....Yuck!

When you walk through your home and your socks are gray on the bottom...It usually means that its that time again.....What time your ask?

There is one chore I hate more than anything else to do....Clean My Carpets! Thats my Tackle!

But let me tell you what "Works for me" on this tackle............

First problem..........

What do you use to clean carpets.
Rent a Carpet Machine....Get the WIDE one for sure.

Okay, now what cleaning solution?

I decided to use a degreaser to spray on the high traffic area. I remembered a degreaser that I had used years earlier on tough cleaning projects, so I thought maybe I'd get some to spray on the high traffic areas. I remembered that I got it at Lowes and so off to Lowes to rent a machine and get the degreaser.
When I got there I read the label on the degreaser and it says.....For use in Carpet Cleaners........That was me!
The Product Krud Kutter.......This stuff is awesome! So I bought a gallon.

Dirty Water after the first shampoo with Krud Kutter. Yuck Again.
This stuff really cut the dirt.....

Next Problem....have you ever noticed that when you clean your looks great but in just a few months it is dirty again.....its crazy.

The reason.....Soap residue left on your carpet....Sticky soap residue.....ATTRACTS DIRT!

Solution......Rinse with White Vinegar and Hot Water in the Carpet Cleaning Machine.
Cuts the soapy residue and leaves your carpet squeaky clean!

Leaving your carpet that stays cleaner longer.

The white vinegar also deodorizes you carpet leaving your whole house smelling really great.

So here is what I do....I actually clean the carpet with the krud kutter 2 times.. then I rinse with the vinegar and water the 3rd time i go over each carpet.....Believe me you'll be glad you did.

If you are not a a test. Clean on carpet the regular method and clean one carpet with my method.

Let me know what you think when 1 month goes by...

Now you have my tackle and what works for me......

Carpet, After it had a method.....Looks great!

That is actually a really good tip! I am so glad I stopped by today. I am sorta of obsessed with vacuuming and having clean I will definitely try this.

Many blessings!

Well off to Lowe's as so as work was over, with my list in hand. I got home with the Krud Kutter, but I forgot the vinegar. Oh well the carpet looks great one hour later. I am going to clean it one more time after I watch DWTS and then I may go to WalMart for the vinegar. Thanks for the suggestion.

A most excellent WFMW! You're so right about the 3 months later - carpet's look insanely dirty again. I'm all over that vinegar thing!
