Club Soda Carpet Cleaner

Whose bright idea was it to put carpet in our dining room? That's what I ask myself every day as I'm cleaning up after meal time. Whoever made that decision must not have had young kids. On the bright side, it's given me ample opportunities to try out green carpet cleaning methods.

The latest thing I've tried is club soda after reading about it here. I'm pleased as punch with the results. It's worked on every carpet stain I've tackled. It's even gotten out dark red stains from my carpet. Not only does it work, it works quickly and without much effort. Woot woot!

Some people think the bubbles in the club soda help lift stains. Others think it's the water and salt combination. All I know is, it works. 'Nuff said.

  1. Pour club soda on the stain and watch the cool bubbles.
  2. Blot with a dry absorbent towel. Don't rub.
  3. With your left-over club soda, try one of these problem-solving uses.


Do you have any green carpet cleaning tips to share?

  1. I hadn't thought of trying this, but now I will clearly have to. We have light colored carpets and there are a few spots that are clearly taunting me.

  2. Oh good! I was actually tempted to put in a request for carpet cleaner. Now I don't have feel like I am demanding because you read my mind. AWESOME! Totally will be trying this one soon.

  3. Thats great- I had no idea it would be so simple! I pinned that for future use. :) Found you through Cheerios and Lattes, thanks for the post!

  4. We just got new carpet in our playroom, and already the spills are happening. Thanks for the tip!

  5. Our new home has absolutely no carpet and I love it! But I'm still pinning this for others to benefit from :) Thanks for linking up at Tiny Tip Tuesday! Oh, and a huge congrats for your very prominent feature over at New Nostalgia!!! Yay! I'm proud to say that I knew you before your fame ;)

  6. We just had our carpets cleaned so I am going to pick up some club soda to keep them that way! Thanks!

  7. Oh my, I love this tip. I am going to try this today on a stubborn stain in our family room carpet. Thanks for sharing at Monday Mania this week :)
