Today I am sharing a cleaning tip that I have used for years. So many years that I can’t even remember who gave me the idea. That was back before I even blogged, before anyone blogged really. How did we survive?
Are you ready to hear the cheapest and easiest way to get rid of spots on your carpet?
It’s simple. Shaving cream.
Yep, you heard me right. Shaving cream.
When I first heard about it, I was skeptical, so I put it to the test against several spray spot carpet cleaners on the market. Not only does it remove spots just as well, but it doesn’t leave the carpet feeling “crunchy” like most of them do.
This morning I tried it out on a spot on the carpet between my master bedroom and bathroom. I’m embarrassed to admit this, but it’s been there for months. As an upside, now you know that this will work even with carpet stains that have been neglected because you’re too busy doing other things like feeding people, providing them with clean clothes, and running them all over tarnation.
I just dabbed a bit of shaving cream on it. The cheapest shaving cream works the best. You don’t want the fancy kinds with the lotion.
Just work it in a little bit with your fingers. Let it sit for a minute or two.
Then just wipe it up with a wet cloth. (If you have light carpet, use a light colored cloth.) Voila, spot GONE!
And when it dries, it won’t be all stiff and crunchy to walk on. Best carpet spot remover ever!
Here’s another before and after shot, just because I love them so much. 🙂
