That sounds like it may be for removing stains from a carpet, Gail.
That would take a lot of alcohol for a room. I use laundry detergent to shampoo my carpets.
White vinegar is all I use, it cleans and disinfects.
Straight white vinegar in a spray bottle. I have a lot of pets and visiting pets. Works like a charm for me.
Here is so far the best tutorial what I like and use... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLbs-Af8vzA
