Question & Intro!

Hey ladies! I have been lurking on this board for quite some time!

DH and I are moving into our house on Friday, so I have a feeling I will be coming on here a lot and posting. My first question I have for you is about steam cleaners for carpets. Our upstairs has white carpets that could use a deep clean, but I hate the thought of using a ton of chemical filled shampoos. Does anyone know of natural ingredients or better shampoos to use? I would prefer to find something in a store rather than online because I'd like to do this on Friday. Thank you!

  • I don't know about cleaning carpet... the first project we did after moving into our house was tear out the carpet and restore the floors.  Welcome to the board, though!

  • Hello and welcome!  Unfortunately I don't have a good answer to your carpet question.  I'll admit to renting a regular carpet cleaning machine, with two pets I didn't even consider trying a greener option.  I hope you find something!

  • We rented a Rug Doctor and used Biokleen carpet and rug shampoo. http://biokleenhome.com/products/household/general. I was able to find it at a local store - they have a spot on the website to find retailers near you.
