DIY Homemade Carpet Cleaner Recipe for Machines

Ok, I’m a little embarrassed to say this… but my carpets are FILTHY! Or should I say….were filthy?  I have been wanting professionals to come clean my carpet.. but I never got around to making the appointment and/or I didn’t have the money for it.

I finally got fed up with my nasty floors and decided to purchase a Carpet Cleaning machine.  I bought the Hoover Max Extract All Terrain and I looooove this machine.  My only complaint about it is that its noisy. But thats ok.  It came with the sample bottles of cleaning solution.  When that ran out, I needed more carpet cleaning solution.  I wasn’t about to purchase a $20+ bottle of solution (when I would need multiple bottles) That would be costly.  So, I came across this recipe and I love it.

Here’s what you’ll need:

You will want to combine all of the ingredients and make sure everything is mixed well. I like to take the empty gallon container and fill it about 3/4 of the way full with the hot water and then add the remaining ingredients. After the remaining ingredients are added I like to top it off with hot water and then do a little shake to make sure its all mixed.

Here’s what your homemade carpet cleaner solution will look like:

Yours may come out a little more different in color depending on what type of laundry cleaner you used.  Do a spot test in an inconspicuous area before using on your whole floor.

Here are some in progress shots of my floor:

  1. Anyone have theirs fizz up and overflow hot water on the counter? I think maybe my water was too hot or my mixture caused this reaction. I used fabuloso instead of the other cleaner. I added cold water because a lot of fizz came out and only about half of the gallon had liquid left. I’m still going to try it out with what I have but wondered if this happened to anyone else. Thanks!

  2. I tried this recipe only I used Gain laundry detergent and fabric softner(since thats what I had). So far I love it. It smells really nice and is getting my carpets clean.
