Questions and Answers
I have a three year old and two small dogs so there are stains but my main concern is we got one of our dogs as a pup a couple months ago and it peed all over the carpet so ounce he was potty trained I rented a carpet cleaner which didn’t even work on the stains or the smell, and about a week ago I babysat a friends dog and her 4 five week old puppies for a couple days……well as you can guess my house now smells like pee even with me trying to keep up with them by cleaning the spots with natures miracle and simple solution extreme. Also i don’t want to get rid of the rug if I can save it because it was very expensive and i like it
SO this is what im thinking, Ill take the rug outside and lay it on my tarp, hose it wet than poor tide laundry detergent all over it and scrub it with a cleaning brush than hose it off and hang it on my chain link fence to dry? Does anyone think this will work? Are there any other strong product you would recommend? Or a different way to get it completely clean??? Thanks!
Laundry detergent or other cleaning solution would work, though I’d caution against dishwashing liquid because one it’s formulated to clean grease out of cookware and to generate bubbles so might not work as well as other products. I’d still use a carpet cleaner because it has special ingredients for stain and odor removal, and will probably not fade the colors, but laundry soap would also work. Don’t use too much or you’ll spend the rest of the day trying to rinse it out.
It’s not the easiest process, but it always works for me and makes our light colored rug look and smell new.
Area Rug Cleaning?I have an approx. 4’x6′ long-shag, white area rug that’s in need of a good cleaning. Besides doing it professionally, is there an easy way to clean it at home?
4 x 6 is small enough to soak in the bathtub. Let it soak with Tide and bleach in the water, drain and rinse well. Hang over the shower curtain rod. Be sure the rod can support the weight and that the rug drips into the tub or you’ll have a flood on the floor.
