Cleaning solutions you can make yourself.

Use the following five solutions with a white absorbent cloth or tissue.

1. Detergent Solution Mix 1-teaspoon of clear, mild liquid dishwashing detergent with 1-cup of lukewarm water.
2. Ammonia Solution Mix 1-tablespoon of household ammonia with 1/2 – cup of warm water. (Refrain from a stronger ammonia solution on wool carpet.)
3. Vinegar Solution Mix 1/3 cup of white, household vinegar with the 2/3 cup of water.
4. Enzyme Detergent Commercial enzyme detergent such as Natures Miracle.
5. Dry Cleaning Solvent Commercial volatile dry spotter such as Energine.

 

Recommended Procedure

Test the solution on a small, inconspicuous area, then tackle the stain by working from the outer edge towards the center and blot, dont rub. The final spot removal step is always to gently rinse the area with water and then absorb all the remaining moisture with absorbent towels. When finished, place a 1/2 inch pad of white, absorbent paper towels over affected area and weigh down with a flat, heavy object. Change absorbent pad until transfer of spilled substance or residue is no longer visible on absorbent pad.
