Once you’ve come to terms as to when it’s time to replace your carpet, you may begin to think about ways you’ll ensure your new investment stays clean between professional cleanings. We know that natural and organic are quite the buzz words these days, and for good reason. It is a good idea to know and understand what your family is being exposed to. It is with this in mind that we at Elite Cleanpro would like to share a recipe for a homemade, natural, carpet cleaning option. 

A Few Reminders: 

- It is always a good idea to test out any new cleaning product (natural or otherwise) on a surface that is not highly visible, first. Though these chemicals are not harsh, there is always the possibility that a reaction you are expecting can occur. 
- Likewise, as these chemicals are not harsh, it is a possibility that you’ll want to repeat the steps a few times to best remove the stain. This is especially true if the stain is older or composed of a particularly stubborn substance. 

Supplies: 

- Any scent of essential oils you enjoy 
- white vinegar
- spray bottle
- baking soda

The Solution & Steps: 

1. Mix the baking soda and essential oils together in a small bowl
2. Sprinkle it atop the stained area, allowing it to sit for as long as overnight
3. Fill a spray bottle with equal parts white vinegar and water
4. After having let the baking soda solution sit long enough, spray the vinegar and water mixture onto the solution
5. It should begin reacting by bubbling
6. When this occurs, place a rag over the stained area and blot it-trying not to scrub

While it is true that these instructions are simple, they can be rather effective. Give them a try in your home.
