We all love a clean and tidy house, but there are so many areas we all forget about very easily. One area, in particular, is carpet. A simple daily hoover is going to keep on top of the visible dirt, but over time the colour will start to change and particles of dirt will get stuck between the fibres. Not only is this unpleasant to look at, but it can affect your health in the long term, and a build-up of bacteria can irritate your skin and chest. So this is why many will then opt to call in a Wilmette area rug cleaning service, or others similar, to do a deep clean on their carpets.
There are many ways you can take care of your carpet, and keep it fresh for as long as possible. Whether you take a look at a professional company who can offer services like Rug Cleaning Toorak or you attempt to have a go at it yourself.
Having a go yourself might be good fun, as you can create the carpet cleaner yourself, and get the satisfaction out of having a beautiful new carpet.
Refresh carpet the easy, natural way with this simple cleaning hack.
Has a dirty carpet got you down? Did Fido leave too little to the imagination? Maybe you had a dinner party and that one guest–who had a few too many–dropped a plate of appetizers and you can’t quite get the smell to go away.
No worries! Try this recipe for DIY carpet cleaner:
- 6 c. baking soda
- 3 c. dried lavender buds or dried flowers, crumbled
- 1 c. cornstarch
First, mix it up and store in an airtight container for a few days. Then, sprinkle generously on your carpet; let sit for an hour. And then, vacuum; as you vacuum the concoction, the old smells will go with it.
