    I’m going to use your recipe when I run out of carpet cleaner! I’ve got a bit of a stockpile of it because I won a year’s worth in a sweeps (it was more like 5 years worth at my cleaning pace, lol). Thanks!

    Luckily, or not, depending on the time of year I have all hardwood flooring. Carpet cleaning can be a chore. Especially if you have kids or animals. Can this be used on furniture too? My sofa needs a cleaning. I’ve tried store bought brands. They brighten it up but the stains bleed back though.

    I prefer area rugs over wall to wall carpeting. It’s difficult to keep carpeting clean. Especially if there are children in the house.

    I try to use home made cleansers whenever I can. I’m very sensitive to chemicals. I’ll have to try this. Thanks!

    I always like use homemade, I think it’s better I need to try this in the hall carpet. The hall carpet is the carpet that gets the most traffic and needs to be cleaned ASAP

    I’m chemically sensitive so I always appreciate finding homemade cleaning recipes. I wish my husband was enthusiastic about cleaning. I can’t complain, he’s a great guy and an excellent cook.

    I usually use store bought cleansers. They can be messy and after a few days the stains come right back. I have to try this.

    Interesting information. I’m not a fan of carpets so anything helpful is nice

    This recipe does work. I do wish that contests would be more like the magazines. Enter the basic info without jumping through hoops.

    How refreshing. A guy that doesn’t mind cleaning. You should write a book. I’m serious. Give us women tips on how to motivate the husbands. It’s be a best seller.

    I always get stuck when there’s a contest with a daily comment. If it’s on the same post, there’s only so many things to say.

    I am starting to learn that there are a lot of different ways to clean your carpet/home without commercial cleaners

    I will have to keep this on hand. I am not much for making my home remedies but I might come in handy.
