Everybody wants a sparkling clean home. But when that comes at the price of using toxic cleaners, it’s simply not worth it. Chemical cleaners are harsher on your carpet than you realize. They leave behind toxic traces that negatively affect both your and your family’s health. Some of these cleaners contain poisonous ingredients when ingested; others pollute the air of your home and increase the risk of allergies.
The good news? There’s a better solution. Not only do natural cleaning agents do just as effective of a job in cleaning your carpet, they also promote sound health. You may not realize that your house is already full of natural carpet cleaning solutions that are cheaper and safer than those toxic alternatives lining the supermarket shelves.
Got carpet stains? Before you rush out to grab a cleaner chock full of hazardous chemicals, consider this list of natural cleaners you probably already have stocked in your cabinets:
- White Vinegar: Comprised of acetic acid, vinegar is a natural cleaner that cuts through even the toughest of stains. To remove carpet stains, mix a teaspoon of liquid detergent with a teaspoon of vinegar in a cup of lukewarm water, and gently rub into stain.
- Baking Soda: Baking soda is another greatly effective non-toxic cleaning agent. Not only does it help to remove those pesky stains, its natural properties will also neutralize any unforgiving odors that have seeped into your carpet. To use as a cleaner, sprinkle any soiled areas with the baking soda and let it soak for 15 minutes or until the stain lifts. Then vacuum the area.
- Microfiber Cloths: A safe and effective way to get out stains? Use microfiber cleaning cloths. The combination of polymers-polyester and nylon – tiny fibers that feature incredible traction- help to lift stains that may seem otherwise unreachable.
