Oops, I spilled it again. DIY Carpet Cleaner

I’m no debutante.

I can’t be trusted to walk while holding a drink and having a conversation. I’m a mess. Just watch our video and you’ll see!

So if you’re clumsy like me and love the warm feel of carpet, don’t trip about tripping. We made some really simple DIY carpet cleaner that works great for stain removal.

Trust me on this one; I actually use this cleaning spray in my home. When my pet has an accident on the carpet, this helps clean it right up! (And believe me, tortoise poop isn’t the easiest thing to clean.)

What is especially great about this spray is that it’s environmentally friendly and harsh-chemical free. That means it’s safe to use around pets and family, which is a huge plus, while helping to maintain the look of new carpet.

The ingredients you’ll need are simple and affordable. Even better that you can probably find most of these in your kitchen already!
