When you get a stain in your carpet, most carpet cleaners are toxic. Luckily there is a way to make solutions at home that may not be as effective as a commercial product, but can keep your carpet clean without harming the environment or endangering your family. Here are some do-it-yourself recipes.


White Vinegar

For most cleaning purposes, a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle will suffice. If you have a natural-fiber carpet, dilute the vinegar more with 2 cups of water for every cup of vinegar.


Grease Spots

If you have a grease stain, vinegar may not be enough to get it out. Sprinkle some corn starch onto the affected area and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Vacuum it up and your carpet will be grease-free.


Heavy-Duty Borax Paste

For those really tough stains, you will need a more potent formula. Mix equal parts salt, borax, and vinegar. Apply the paste to the stained spots and let it sit for a few hours before vacuuming. Borax is a mild skin irritant. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) categorizes borax at the same hazard level as salt and baking soda, so it is perfectly safe to use in home cleaning.
