6 Common Household Items You Can Use To Clean Your Carpet

Sale Shaker

Use Salt for Wine

Pour salt on the wine spill to keep it from setting until you figure out which method of clean up you would like to go with.

White wine

Use White Wine for Red Wine

Pour white wine over the stained area and blot the liquid up with a thick towel.  If the stain is still visible, you can add salt to continue lifting out pigment.

Shaving Cream

Use Shaving Cream for Juice

Blot the stain, pat it with a wet sponge, squirt some shaving cream on it, and then wipe clean with a damp sponge.

Beer Mug

Use Beer for Coffee or Tea

Pour a bit of beer right on top.  Rub the beer lightly into the material, and the stain should disappear.  Repeat as necessary.

Rubbing Alcohol

Use Rubbing Alcohol for Glue

Moisten a soft cloth with rubbing alcohol and press it on the affected area.  Once the glue is thoroughly moistened, wipe and repeat until the carpet is clean.

Ice Cube

Use Ice for Gum

Freeze with a wrapped ice cube, then peel off the frozen gum.
