This homemade carpet cleaner spray works on tough messes and dirty carpets. It also gets rid of unpleasant smells, is all-natural, and is simple to make and use!
Face it: spills happen.
If you are like me, then you hate those commercial carpet cleaners that leave your house stinking for hours after a spill is cleaned up. Plus, many of these cleaners can damage or discolor sofas, carpets, or curtains.
However, for spills and stains I find that a more direct cleaner is necessary. That’s why I had to come up with a better homemade carpet cleaner spray that would work on tough messes and dirty carpets.
