Cleaning products can cost a lot and many times you have to try a few until you find one that works perfectly. But if you’re in search of a good carpet cleaner, then here’s the greatest homemade cleaner ever! It will clean even the nastiest stain and leave your rugs clean and fresh.
To make this cleaning solution at home, you are going to need: a 1 gallon plastic container with a lid, 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide, 1/8 cups of dish cleaning gel or liquid, 1 tablespoon of Oxiclean, half a cup of fabric softener and a funnel. Just mix all the ingredients together and then fill the rest of the container with warm water. Then make a quick test on the carpet and if everything is fine, add 2 ounces of the solution with warm water on the stain and wait for the magic to happen. Such a cool homemade cleaning product and one that will cost you less than a store-bought one on the long term!
Home cleaning products for carpets are an ideal solution, because some commercial spot removers take off the protective coatings or break down dyes that are found on most carpets.

According to the MarthaStewart.com website, home cleaning products for carpets are an ideal solution, as the site explains: “Some commercial spot removers take off the protective coatings or break down dyes that are found on most carpets.”
The site also includes a list of stains and the best products to clean them, with mention of hydrogen peroxide’s excellent ability to bleach stains “without breaking down carpet dyes.” She recommends using peroxide on stubborn stains such as “blood, berries, candy, chocolate, soft drinks/coffee, gravy, ice cream.”
The cleaning instructions advise: “Mix: Buy 3 percent solution at a drugstore and use full strength.
Technique: Scoop up solids with a spoon. Blot liquids. Rinse repeatedly. If stain persists, use soapy water, then rinse. Repeat. If improvement stops, dab on hydrogen peroxide. Wait one hour. Repeat as needed.”
The site also recommends hydrogen peroxide on mud stains, with the recommendation to allow the mud to dry and vacuum before rinsing with soapy water and using hydrogen peroxide to bleach the stain.
