How to Remove Carpet Odors & Stains

Carpets add a nice look to the home, but can become dirty, stained and carry odor. Pets can sometimes have accidents on the carpet or things can get spilled, leaving hard-to-remove stains and odor. Hiring a professional cleaner to remove carpet stains and odors can be expensive. You do not need to spend a lot of money to remove carpet stains and odors.

Instructions:

1. Clean stains from the carpet as soon as they happen, especially red wine and coffee. The longer they set in, the harder they are to remove. Mix 1/4 cup of peroxide with 2 tbsp. of baking soda in the spray bottle. Leave the remaining baking soda for the last step. Shake the two ingredients together in the bottle until the baking soda dissolves. The hydrogen peroxide will dissolve the stain and the baking soda will eliminate odors instantly.
       
2. Spray the contents of the spray bottle directly onto the stain. Apply slight pressure to the microfiber cloth and rub away the stain. Rinse the cloth occasionally and repeat spraying and rubbing the stain. Spray some more of the peroxide and baking soda from the bottle onto the stain. Leave it for 15 minutes.

3. Blot the stain and odor area with the microfiber cloth. Rinse and repeat the process until the area is clean. Rub the wet area of the carpet briskly to eliminate most of the wetness. Place a fan in front of the damp area to speed up the drying process. Sprinkle baking soda over the carpet and vacuum it. The baking soda will eliminate any remaining odor. Discard the rest of the peroxide and baking soda from the spray bottle.
