    I have found that by mixing a ratio of 5 lbs white cornmeal and 2 lbs of cornstarch together will make a very nice carpet cleaner.

    I sprinkle it on using my small mesh strainer and scrub it in with a long handled brush. Wait at least one hour, 2 is better; and then vacuum it up. I was using an expensive dry cleaner and I found that this was better. No chemicals either. Safe to walk on and for pets.

      I wonder if this might work on removing the last (now pink) red candle wax dribbles on white carpet. What do you think. Don't know if your combination is for spot cleaning or entire carpet. I was told never to put powdered air freshers on carpet. Ruins vacuum and seldom comes completely out of carpet???? Any thoughts?
