DIY Stain Remover.

before and after

See that stain on the left. Well… our floor is COVERED in those little spots. Sippy cups are not leak proof, and they are every where. Combine that with Craig walking through with his shoes on and you’ve got a juice/mud stain that really isn’t all that easy to get out.

A few weeks ago, I cleaned the carpet, like hands and knees scrubbed it two days in a row. It looked GREAT, but cost $30 for the cleaner and only lasted a few days with the kids. (Not to mention that $30 of cleaner barely covered our tiny living room). The other day a friend told me about vinegar and dish soap as a carpet cleaner, so I figured I’d try it. OMG. It worked better than any other carpet cleaner I’ve ever used.


    • 1 C hot water
    • 1/2 TBSP White Vinegar
    • 1/2 TBSP Clear Dishsoap.
    • Bowl and Washcloth

Combine the ingredients into a bowl. Dip a wash rag into it and blot the stain. That’s it… just blot it a few times and watch it disappear!
There is a slight vinegar smell.. but after an hour it wasn’t even noticeable.

Am I the only one that didn’t know about this magical concontion?? No way, how the heck is Resolve still in business?!

Happy cleaning.
