The chemicals and cleaning products used to deep clean a carpet can sometimes be too strong for people who have sensitivities to certain ingredients. Rather than spending hours googling “how to deep clean carpet naturally,” why not try one of these tips from Meg Roberts, president of Molly Maid?
Vinegar, dish soap, and water. Stir one tablespoon of dish soap into one quart of warm water, then add 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar. This is a good overall cleaner. Be sure to test the solution on a small, inconspicuous spot on your carpet before applying it to the stain.
Club soda. Club soda works as a cleanser when it is spritzed on carpet. It’s great for removing blood and wine stains. Apply a small amount of soda on the stain, then using a dry cloth or a paper towel, blot the surface until the stain is lifted. Rub rather than scrub the carpet fibers.

“You can wash the carpet using a mixture of warm water and a few drops of liquid soap, such as Castile soap. This soap is suitable because it is nontoxic, yet it is powerful enough to remove dirt and other debris,” he says. Using a clean cloth, scrub the carpet with the solution, and blot the surface using a dry towel to soak up as much water as possible.
