What can I use as a substitute carpet shampoo for my carpet cleaner?

Recommended Posts

I have a Kirby vacuum that has a carpet cleaning attachment. I want to clean my living room carpet while my couches are out being reupholstered but I don't have enough "official Kirby shampoo" & I don't want to go out just to buy it. Is there any other things anyone has experience using?

 

Thanks,

Jacqui

except for hot water and white vinegar. My carpet has never been cleaner...and better still...never stayed cleaner. I swear the soap was leaving a residue behind that was attracting dirt.

 

So, my vote is nothing!

White vinegar in the water with no detergent is excellent and leaves no smell behind. A professional friend of ours told my husband he always uses vinegar when doing carpets in a rental or dormitories. Regular cleaning and spot cleansers cause a build-up which makes dirt stick to the carpet fibers.

 

We just purchased a new carpet cleaning machine and I plan to use only white vinegar.

 

With all of that said, I have always heard that small amounts of liquid Tide and baby shampoo are two of the best choices if you are out of the official cleaning solution.
