I’m way too hormonal for my own good, and I knew this full well when I couldn’t take a nap yesterday. All the stains in my carpet were STARING at me.
I told my husband, “I don’t care that it’s Labor Day, I’m completely grossed out by our carpets!” and immediately headed out to Target to see what kind of product I could find that I could use to clean our apartment carpets without a steam cleaner.
I came home with Resolve High Traffic cleaner and this nifty scrub brush tool to go with it. It didn’t take long before I started to get a headache and my toddler, who was blocked in on the other half of the living room was becoming restless in his confinement. This just would not do! Who knows what kind of chemicals they put in that Resolve cleaner, and my son eats Cheerios off that floor!
eHow to the rescue! Check out their article, How to Clean Your Carpet Without Steam | eHow.com, for an easy, non-headache inducing recipe for a foamy carpet cleanser you scrub in, let dry, and vacuum up! I’m ridiculously impressed with the results. Our carpet definitely looks like we may have just moved in! Hooray!
Best part is, I make my own powdered laundry detergent! I knew exactly what was in my carpet cleaner, and so my kid can eat all his meals right off our naturally cleansed rugs if he really wants!
