    Hello & Welcome :-), thanks for bumping this thread up. I have a carpet cleaner and need to clean our living room carpet. Reading this thread I'm wondering if putting vinegar in the carpet cleaner would work?

    when vinegar doesn't do the trick on pet stains, I use straight hydrogen peroxide. Cheap, works, but check carpet because it could take away color on some types of carpet. We have that stain resisting carpet and the peroxide does not affect carpet color.

    I don't like renting the machine because I think about germs picked up in the brushes from other people's houses. maybe they clean them in between

    we have a steam cleaner but the dogs have been so good, I haven't used it since we moved in

    I hate carpet, I want something you can mop. In my townhouse, I had it all removed, and put down well-rated laminate flooring throughout (wood was too expensive). Then I unexpectedly moved so did not re-coup the cost of the laminate but I don't know if I could've sold the house for as much with the icky carpet in it. Here we only have carpet in the bedrooms.

    Be sure to ask if the company is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration. This organization guarantees the company can show proof of insurance, maintain a written customer complaint policy with documented follow-ups, and show technicians continue training.

    Laundry detergent is bad for carpets because it suds up (similarly do not use sudsing detergent in dishwasher). The sudsing detergents work on clothes because that is what it is designed to work with.
    Personally, I use liquid versions of cleansers because undissolved powders can behave like sandblasting especially in dishwasher.

    What kind of cleaner do you recommend for pet stains that have already set? I have a 9 month old yorkie & sometimes she pees in places I don't see until the next day... after it's already dried and had time to set in. I've tried vinegar, but it doesn't work as well, and nothing can get rid of the horrible smell!! Those "pet odor" and "pet stain" eliminators are incredibly expensive, too!

    I just want to say thank you for sharing with us that homemade carpet cleaning solution. For me, I always use OxiClean and Hot Water. This eliminates both stains and odor and there is no lingering odor while you wait for your floor to dry as with the homemade cleaner solutions that sometimes contain vinegar and ammonia.

    This looks like a great solution. I usually use Simple Green for my own carpets and with a little elbow geese, it works. The key is to not let you carpets get too dirty because dirt being constantly compacted into the carpet is what destroys your carpet the most.

    Here is a recipe that I got out of the paper:
    half cup ammonia
    half cup white vinegar
    quarter cup baking soda
    2 tablespoons liquid soap
    2 quarts water

    Mix and pour into spray bottle - shake will before each use.

    Works pretty well.
