But, before applying the baking soda onto the carpet, we make ensure that the dust cleaning through Vacuum cleaner has been done. See we know, both are the powders (baking soda and dust), the vacuum cleaner would suck all the baking soda in just one deep cleaning. So what we have to do is, just pick a small tub and put all the baking soda into it. A small tub and baking soda are much cheaper than the other cleaning products that we use while cleaning carpets. Apply the solution on the carpet and subsequently, the stains get removed or released. Furthermore, the other cleaning materials that are used for carpet cleaning in Melbourne like Dry Absorbent and chemical cleaner are harsh chemicals but they all give instant result. However, with the baking soda cleaning, we need to wait for few hours. This cleaning requires a quarter of the time to show its complete effect.

Now, in this article, we will look into some methods to clean carpet with baking soda. It is one of the best product for cleaning carpets and easy to use.

Freshen Carpet with Baking Soda

Applying the baking soda directly on the carpet won’t be very effective. As it gets sucked up when we clean the carpet through a vacuum cleaner so, use the vacuum cleaner at the initial stage. It will wipe the big particles of dirt, and if we use the ‘deeper cleaner method’ on the vacuum cleaner, it will take away the deeper dirt from the surface of the carpet. Now, sprinkle the baking soda powder over the area where the dirt concentration (long time attached dirt) is more. After 15-30 minutes, use a dry scrubber and scrub the area, the dirt will release and we can wipe it through the handheld cleaner.

The Same thing can be applied on the stains as well; put the baking powder over the stained area. When it is mixed up with the stains, try to scrub those areas and the stains will start releasing, clean it through the handheld cleaner. After the cleaning process, allow the carpet to stay free for 2-3 hours, as longer it sits freely, better would be the cleaning results.  

Carpet Cleaning with Vinegar & Baking Soda

This we can say as a rare solution for carpet cleaning. Initially, we clean the carpet with a vacuum cleaner. Add the baking soda into a vinegar solution, we may see an instant reaction, let the reaction gets neutralised or completed. We can expect a strong smell, as it is due to the vinegar. Remember, this is a solution in which a complete carefulness is needed from our end. This solution will remove the stains from the carpet. And for that, we need to sprinkle some hot water (50 degrees) onto the stained area. Then, use a sprayer to spray the solution (baking soda, vinegar) over the stained area, the stain starts dissolving with the solution and hot water. Use a scrubber and try soft cleaning so that much carpet fibers won’t get removed. Use the handheld cleaner to wipe the stained dirt.

Carpet Cleaning with H202 and Baking Soda

Sometimes, there might be allergic particles on the carpets, they are tiny and cannot be seen. Here, we need to use the hydrogen peroxide (H202), which kills the allergic particles and small arachnids. This solution is also used by the carpet cleaners to remove allergic substances. This can be prepared through the below following ingredients:

  • 200ml of Hydrogen Peroxide
  • 200ml of vinegar,
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of fabric softener
  • 500ml of hot water (50 degrees)

Apply the solution on the carpet after using the deep cleaner method of the vacuum cleaner. This solution also removes the long time dust traffic that is occupied on the carpet. Allow the carpet to sit freely for 5 or 6 hours, and again vacuum up to remove completely the stains particles, allergic substances, and dirt from the carpet if any.  

With these kinds of household cleaning methods, we can clean out all kinds of tough carpet stains, from fruit juice to red wine. And this also helps us to save the money to some extent!
