I found a carpet stain remover “recipe” on this website: http://www.good.is/post/good-instructions-how-to-spring-clean-with-nontoxic-home-made-products/  Guess what, it works!  Or, at least it worked on about half of our stains. 😉

It worked on our stairs but not on the big stain near the office.

Equal parts:

  • baking soda
  • salt
  • white vinegar

Apply the paste (after it’s finished fizzing) to the stain, let it dry, the vacuum.  Although, to be honest, the vacuuming will only be partially successful.  We had to use a wet rag to get the rest of the white paste off.
