Magic carpet cleaner!

Hey guys! Sorry for my absence but our life has been pretty boring & wonderful :)

This past weekend we kept our friends dog for a couple days & we SO enjoyed her playfulness & just livelihood. She & H got along beautifully and it was so fun watching them play. But poor Nala got an upset stomach and had a couple accidents on our carpet! She was really, really sick and although it was frustrating I didn't blame her one bit. She couldn't help it! Anyway, needless to say we had some stains. I really didn't want to have to rent one of those things that clean your carpet because I've read they are a pain in the butt (we are going to rent one anyway- just to spruce up our whole carpet for spring) but I didn't really want these stains on my carpet until we rent that thing... So I started researching and I found this amazing concoction on Pinterest. You take one part ammonia, one part HOT water (I put it on the stove until it was ALMOST boiling), an iron, a spray bottle, and a clean white towel. All you do is heat up the water & mix it with the ammonia in a clean spray bottle. Spray it liberally on the spot & then lay the towel on it & iron the stain! EASY, PEASY! I know it sounds so crazy and I don't even know how it works but I have to tell you IT WORKS. It is INCREDIBLE and I am so proud of my results! For a really hard stain you'll have to spray & iron a couple times but I promise it will come off. The big, gross stain was there for over a week and I tried endless things to get it off. This worked. Now I'm going all over my house doing this because it is SO easy! Here are my pictures to prove it:

  1. If you have a bad experience with renting carpet cleaners, try hiring a professional carpet cleaner instead. Renting the machine would leave you with the trouble of assembling and disassembling it, and perhaps leave you with more stains. You can never be too sure if those things are being properly maintained and cleaned.

  4. Pleased to meet you, KellyAnne! I'd like to add something about your tutorial, if you don't mind. It's about the part where you have to iron the carpet. I think you forgot to mention that before ironing, they should use the towel as a cover for the stained part. The process will actually absorb the stain, and transferred into the towel. Another method for cleaning the stain is by using baking soda, hot water, and vinegar.
