The Organically Clean Home-Carpet Stains

A close friend of mine sent me a book in the mail called The Organically Clean Home. As I’ve gotten older and had more children, I’ve become more aware of the harmful chemicals that surround me.  My cleaning cabinet closely resembles a kitchen these days and I don’t fear that my daughter, now 12 months, will get into anything more than vodka, baking soda and vinegar, among a few other items. (The essential oils and dishwashing pods are kept away separately.)

 

Through first-hand experience and second hand anecdotal tales I’m learning that a natural approach to cleaning is just as, if not more than, effective than “traditional” cleaners.   I am going to work my way through The Organically Clean Home and share my results with you!

Recently, upon returning home from school chauffeur duty, I walked into my living room to find orangey vomit from my dog on our 6 month old carpet. I opened up the OCH book and flipped to Carpet Stain Remover. It calls for warm water and dish soap or castile soap. I scoffed at the simplicity.  It instructed that I only dab the stain which I thought was counter intuitive, but to my surprise the stain was lifting better than I had ever experienced.  The key here is to not rub in the stain which I’ve been doing for years.

Next you have to dab up the soap and residue with regular warm water.  I did this about three times and by the end, you couldn’t see where the stain was and to this day I can not find a variation in color on my carpet!  Your Welcome!

A close friend of mine sent me a book in the mail called The Organically Clean Home. As I’ve gotten older and had more children, I’ve become more aware of the harmful chemicals that surround me.  As my very intelligent younger brother has informed me that everything is a chemical (compounds and such) I want to drive it home that I am trying to avoid harmful chemicals. My cleaning cabinet closely resembles a kitchen these days and I don’t fear that my daughter, now 12 months, will get into anything more than vodka, baking soda and vinegar, among a few other items.
