DIY carpet cleaner

Ah those lovely Sunday cleaning jobs that you put off all week, this was definitely one of those. Thanks to this fluff ball there was a vomit stain on the carpet, and as I've given away all my carpet stain remover I decided to have a go at making one.


1 tablespoon of white vinegar
1 teaspoon of Organic Dishwashing Liquid 
1 teaspoon of bicarb soda
1 cup of warm water
1 spray bottle (any old one will do)


Add the soap and the vinegar in the spray bottle (it looks a bit weird at this point!) then add the cup of warm water, the liquid soap will melt and blend through. Add the bicarb soda (it may get a bit fizzy so be ready with the lid). I gave it a bit of a shake and then sprayed it onto the stain and left it for a few minutes.  I used a reusable fabric cloth to soak up the liquid and give the stain a good rub, and what do you know, it worked!!

I was actually surprised at how well it worked, this stain had been there for a few weeks (I’ve been putting off this Sunday job for a while!)

Easy, cheap and actually works, this ones a winner! If you have any DIY cleaning recipes I'd love to hear them.
