If your carpet requires stain cleaning, but you don’t want chemicals and fumes in the house, consider one of the many Happy Home eco-friendly carpet stain removal options. That are safe, natural, convenient, effective, and cost-effective.
Happy Tip Number 1: Use Baking Soda
Baking soda is an all-purpose cleaner and an excellent stain remover. Tanning stains from tea and coffee as well can be removed using baking soda. Apply some baking soda on a damp cloth and scrub the stain. Alternatively, mix baking soda with vinegar or lemon juice and make a thick paste. Apply it on the carpet and leave it on for about ten minutes. Follow this by vacuuming the carpet. This will not only remove the stain but would also deodorize the carpet.
Happy Home Tip Number 2: Use White Vinegar
White vinegar is a mild acid and very effective for removal of tough stains from carpet. Vinegar works extremely well on animal urine, mold, and mildew stains on the carpet. Moreover, if you intend to use it as a deodorizer, fill a spray bottle with vinegar and spray it on the carpet to absorb all odors.
Happy Home Tip Number 3: Use Lemon Juice
Lemon juice contains a mild bleaching effect and is very effective on oil and grease stains. For stubborn stains, salt can be added to lemon juice.
Happy Home Tip Number 4: Use Saliva
This may sound disgusting but applying saliva on fresh blood stains can be effective. Follow with a cold water rinse
Polishing Stainless Steel
Our Happy Club has found a practical solution to polish and remove streaks from stainless stell appliances. The trick is to use a small amount of baby oil, mineral oil, olive oil on a paper towel, and wipe the surface. You can also use club soda, rubbing alcohol, or white vinegar. Purchase a lint-free cloth, and wipe with the grain to reduce the effects of streaking. Never use an abrasive tool or cleaner and always test new cleaning solutions.
Quick Happy note:
Did you know that if you have dark spot or pet stains on your hard wood you can use No. 000 steel wool & floor wax . If the area is still dark apply vinegar or bleach & let it sit for roughly an hour, then dry it off with a damp cloth
