Stain removal…ugh.

With all the tips and tricks and brands and bottles, the question remains:

What is the easiest way to remove a stain?

Here we go…

Oh my gosh! A coffee stain!

Apparently the hubs had a little calamity while trying to sip his cup o’ joe and play Words With Friends at the same time!

Good thing I know the secret to stain removal, using the world’s best homemade carpet cleaner.

The best part is it only takes 3 ingredients that I know you have on hand. Drum roll please…

Ta Da!

Vinegar…Peroxide…a little dab of Dawn dish soap.

You just mix 1 cup of white vinegar with 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide, a little squirt of dish soap, and then pour it in a spray bottle. Add a little hot water to fill up the bottle, shake it up good and voila`!

The empty spray bottle that I used to put my magic potion in, just happened to be a bottle of all natural carpet cleaner in it’s previous life!

Perfect for the job!

How cool is that? I didn’t even have to re-label the bottle! It’s the little things, ya’ know?

So the hubs got busy spraying and dabbing away at the spot…

“Oops my bad”!

Since there was some loose dirt on the carpet, he got busy with the vacuum first…

When all the loose dirt was sucked up, the culprit then sprayed the spot and blotted away…

Note:Β If you want to use this solution for your steam vac or carpet cleaning machines, just mix together 4 TBSP of peroxide with 2 TBSP of white vinegar, add 1 TBSP of Dawn dish soap and mix it all together with 1 1/2 Quarts of really really hot water. It works great as an all natural solution to use in your steam vacuum cleaners! πŸ™‚

    • Awesome! I’m glad it worked for you! I use peroxide to get stains out of clothes, so I thought “why not on carpet?” It works good for getting blood out of carpet (even colored carpet without bleaching the color out of it) too! Thanks for checking out my post and taking the time to comment! πŸ™‚
