The Best DIY Natural Carpet Shampoo Recipe EVER!
If your in a spot where your carpets need a shampoo after the muddy season like mine did then I urge you to use this instead of the awful chemicals they sell to wash your carpets. I usually rent a carpet cleaner from the local supermarket but ALDI had them on special a few weeks ago so I snapped one up! When I went to buy the shampoo I realised they were all full of nasties. I have 3 kids that often roll around on the carpet naked, constantly face planting and making out with the carpet on a regular basis! It got me thinking…
I wonder if I could mix up my own batch! So I did! All you need is a container, I used a large sauce bottle because the hole I had to pour it into was quite small and I didnt want it going everywhere.
1/4 cup of Surface Spray . I used Abode Surface Cleaner
2 Tbsp Dishwashing Liquid . I used Abode Dishwash Liquid
1/4 cup Laundry Soaker I used Abode Laundry Soaker
1 Tbsp Bicarbonate Soda
Mix this with approximately a litre of Hot Water. Once this is mixed then add your essential oil blend.
15 Drops Bergamot Mint Essential Oil
15 drops Nutmeg Essential Oil
This is now a concentrate! Use this the same as your commercial shampoos. If it says add 20ml to your tank then add that if it says add half a cup to your tank then that is how much you use! Do NOT use this neat on your carpet!
This was so easy to whip up and made the carpet smell amazing! So fresh! Feel free to add whatever essential oils you would like other suggestions are lemon clove and ginger!
I sprayed water on the marks to loosen the dirt before I went over with the machine!
