Household Mainstays That Can Help Keep Carpets Clean

There is a reason that you won’t often see carpet in museums. But your house is not meant to be a museum. It is meant to be lived in. And carpet can make living in your home a much more comfortable experience.

Carpet stains are an unavoidable fact of life, but there are ways that you can combat them. You may already have some of the tools you need to clean your carpet stored in your house. Here are some common household items that can help you keep your carpets clean.

Baking Soda

It's common knowledge that baking soda is excellent at masking unpleasant scents. The worst part of cleaning up a pet accident stain is the unpleasant odor it may leave behind. For relief, go for the baking soda in your pantry and liberally dust the afflicted area.

Wait an hour or even overnight before using. The more time it spends there, the better it will be able to neutralize the odor. After the allotted time has passed, vacuum up the baking soda.


Vinegar is an effective weapon that you may use to remove stains and smells from carpets. To remedy the situation, fill a spray bottle with a combination of water and vinegar, split it down the middle and then apply it to the affected area.

To remove the solution, blot it off with a piece of dry paper towel or a clean cloth. The vinegar smell will dissipate along with any other foul smells and any fresh stains should be removed as well.


Were you painting your nails and accidentally knocked over the nail polish bottle onto your carpet? There's no reason to worry. Savior: Nail polish remover. If you don't want to make new stains develop, acetone that doesn't include color is essential.

Perform the test on a tiny, unnoticeable area of the carpet first. Make sure the nail polish remover and your carpet are suitable. If no bleaching or staining occurs, the acetone is compatible with your carpet. Begin by soaking a cotton ball in the acetone. Then, use the cotton ball to clean up the dropped nail paint.
