This is the carpet right by the front door. Eventually SO and I said f**k it, and covered it with a rug. ANYWAYS. I cleaned this in seconds. The white stuff is baking soda FYI. lol
I just used a bit of dish detergent and half a cup of white vinegar, to about 3 cups of warm water. Thought you guys should know, it's like magic.
I let the baking soda sit for about 10 mins before vacuuming it up. Then I used a scrub brush to scrub out the stains..it took me very little effort.

My grandma uses it to clean EVERYTHING. To freshen up pipes/food disposal---> dump some soda down each side of the sink and then pour vinegar down it. Add a little lemon or orange oil for smell

I only use water, vinegar, baking soda and occasionally dish soap along with elbow grease! I don't even buy harsh cleaners.

Haha you have more patience than I. Our living room is massive, I'd die. We used my MIL's like 6 months ago and it worked so well and so fast, so we just bought the same one. I love it! Buuut I will fasho use this for the deeper stains instead of buying their stain solution for em.



I wonder if I could use this on Bug's car seat for the stains on there.
