Various tips and ideas can be found on the internet, and carpet cleaning methods are most searched online. Everyone is welcome to try anything they can find on the web, and it’s a good thing to try and discover something new every once in a while.
Carpet cleaning is one of the most important parts of taking care of your home. Keeping your carpets clean prolongs its lifespan and gives your home a fresher ambiance.
We know you’ve been dying to learn something new to include in your home cleaning regimen. So here are a few new ideas for you to try.
Move on from baking soda
Baking soda and vinegar are great for bleaching, but if you think it’s time for you to spice things up, we suggest you give shaving cream a chance. Shaving cream is also great for removing stains, and more often than not, it gives better results than a lot of different stain removal products.
How to use:
Take your stained material and apply shaving cream on it. Leave it for 30 minutes and gently wipe with a soft, dry cloth. You can use your classic vinegar-water mixture to follow up on the shaving cream. Your carpet does not have to be soaked in vinegar, see to it that it is damp enough to remove the stain and gently wipe it off again after a few minutes.
This should make your carpet look better. If the stain has not been removed completely, you may have to repeat the process a few more times. Shaving cream can definitely save your carpet from stubborn stain. You should definitely give it a try.
Try steam cleaning
When you notice that dirt and stains are hard to remove, and not even your best homemade mixtures can combat them, it might be time for you to try steam cleaning. Steam cleaning deep cleans your carpet and greatly helps in removing stubborn dirt and other stuff that might have settled deep in your carpet fibers. A typical vacuum may not be able to remove such dirt, but steam cleaning can!
For steam cleaning, you will need a small amount of inexpensive detergent or solution, and a steam cleaner which you can rent. Just be careful with some cleaning solutions because they don’t always blend well with carpets.
Try the Ice Trick
If you haven’t tried ice as a gum remover, this tip should be on your list. Gums, when stuck in the carpet, can get annoying and disturbing. Instead of resorting to toxic solutions to remove it, try freezing it using ice, and you will see it works wonders! Gum is much easier to handle when frozen, so you better try out the “ice trick”. It’s such a simple trick, but it can save you from a lot of troubles.
Try the heat trick too
It’s amazing how many home remedies can actually aid in the cleaning game. Once you’ve tried the cold trick, maybe you want to try the heat trick for some other cleaning hurdles like wax that got stuck (aka fossilized) in your carpet fibers. If you scrape it while it’s cold, you might end up plucking a few fibers along with it. Heating the wax to melt it and makes it easier to remove. Once it’s melted and soft, it should be less stressful to handle.
Try moving your vacuum schedule
If you have been following a particular vacuum schedule, it might be best to try to change it up a little. Choose a different day for your vacuum schedule to avoid putting off your cleaning routine. Feel free to experiment with the days of the week and find out which one works best for you.
A home cleaning routine is not always an exciting thing, but you can always find ways to keep yourself hyped. Trying out some new cleaning hacks is a great way to spice things up, refresh your mindset, and make you look forward to something. Be sure to make use of what you’ve learned in this article in your next carpet cleaning schedule.
