The Best Carpet Cleaning Tips to Clean Spots Naturally
Hydrogen peroxide, is as about as natural as you can get, it is liquid oxygen. Hydrogen peroxide will sanitize and deodorize by killing the microorganisms that cause the odor. Hydrogen peroxide will also eliminate organic staining, from coffee, tea, wine, vomit, diarrhea, urine and many more.
First, a disclaimer. Hydrogen peroxide, is to only be used on synthetic carpet fiber. This means, you cannot use on wool rugs, silk, or cotton fibers which are all natural fibers. Most of these natural fibers are expensive, and will have tags behind them telling you of the fiber type. You can also check your upholstery tags to see what fiber type is on the shell or body.
In order to have the best chance of stain removal, there are a few steps. If you had a large spill of coffee, tea, wine or organic drink, use cold water and blot with a towel. This will transfer most of the staining liquid to the towel, and dilute the drink. Once you blotted, and not swirl rubbed (can cause fiber distortion) you can now use your hydrogen peroxide with a pump top sprayer. You can be liberal with spraying, just do not use your hands to spread around, or your hand will be attacked and turned white temporarily by the peroxide. I like to use my shoe, but you can use rubber gloves. Once you spray, and agitate, you can just leave it to do its work naturally. This same method is recommended for other types of organic spills, but if it is animal feces, then you must clean up as much as you can (vacuum), then use the peroxide.
Hydrogen peroxide, will dry neutral and not leave any residue behind. Over the counter peroxide is safe to use full strength on synthetic carpet, and will not bleach or dye the carpet.
Some other great uses, beside medical, and dental, is cleaning hard water spots in showers and sinks. I hope you enjoy this tip and pass on this knowledge to family and friends.
