  2. After you have waited enough time, use a vacuum cleaner to remove the baking soda.
  3. Make a carpet cleaning solution prepared by the following ingredients:
  • 8-cups water
  • 3/4-cup baking soda
  • 1/2-cup white vinegar
  • 3/4-cup ammonia
  • 7 or more drops of essential oil

Mix the products well and pour the mixture into a spray bottle and a plastic laundry detergent.

  1. Test a small, hidden area of your carpet to make sure that the carpet cleaning solution won’t harm your carpet. Spray the stained areas with the solution, then use a cloth to rub and blot the area.
  2. For heavily stained areas, use the solution to saturate these areas before using the carpet cleaning machine.
  3. Pour your cleaning solution into the machine’s reservoir by following the manufacturer’s instruction. Use the cleaning machine to deep clean your entire carpet.
  4. If there is any dirt residue left, repeat step 6 until your entire carpet is refreshed.
