How to clean the carpet

Carpeting, in addition to its undeniable advantages in terms of softness and comfort, has several disadvantages. They can accumulate dust, wool, and other contaminants, and if not cleaned regularly, they can become real breeding grounds for bacteria.

Over time, the fibers begin to accumulate an unpleasant odor. The easiest way is to dry-clean the carpet. However several effective life hacks will not only help remove dirt but also restore the original softness of the pile. OBOZREVATEL figured out how to remove an unpleasant odor from a carpet.

Cleaning experts advise that instead of using household chemicals, try an environmentally friendly and affordable ingredient - baking soda. For your convenience, we publish step-by-step instructions.

Step 1: Vacuum the carpet first to remove dust and dirt.

Step 2: Next, sprinkle the coating with baking soda and wait at least 10 minutes. Soda acts as a universal odor neutralizer and ten minutes is usually enough for the product to work.

Step 3: Vacuum the carpet again to remove abrasive residues.

You can also use a special deodorizer designed specifically for carpets.

By the way, there is another life hack for cleaning carpets that is very popular in Turkey. The locals are known to adore carpets and lay them everywhere in their homes. Usually, a simple and affordable product is used for cleaning - laundry detergent. For white products, they choose a powder with a bleaching effect, and for variegated and monochromatic coatings, they use a regular detergent for colored items. But there is one secret ingredient that will enhance the effect of the powder. Read about the details and proportions in the article.
