The Best DIY Carpet Cleaners

Whether you're renting a carpet cleaning machine or you have your own, you can make your own carpet cleaner and get great results. I tried out a few homemade cleaning solutions I had heard of Pinterest and other cleaning blogs. I tried out my homemade laundry detergent, oxi clean, and vinegar/water mixture.
In addition to using a good cleaner for your carpets, you also need to use the proper amount so the cleaner does not leave soap residue on your carpets. Even with the commercial carpet cleaners, use less than what is recommended on the label and on the machine.
