Clover House: DIY Carpet Cleaning DIY Carpet Cleaning Mixture: 2 1/2 cups of vinegar 2 scoops of Oxy clean Warm Water to the fill line on the tank The clean water tank on this particular machine was about 2 to 2 1/2 gallons capacity.
My recipe for getting your carpets clean. 1 cup of distilled white vinegar, 2 gallons hot water, and 1/2 to 1 cup of Borax, diluted. This got our carpets SO clean and fresh! Never hiring a company to do it again! I even had red marker on my carpet that the "other guys" said would never come out; this got it out! I save some in a mason jar for emergency spot cleaning.
1 Cup Oxyclean 1 Cup Febreze* 1 Cup Distilled White Vinegar *This homemade version works fabulously! Pour contents into shampooer tank and mix with hot water to fill tank completely. This will not only clean your carpets it will also deodorize. It will smell slightly of vinegar until the carpet is dry, then will smell like Febreze...
