Unfortunately spots can ruin your favorite carpeting. But you can save your favorite thing using the following tips. These tips were designed to simplify your housecleaning. Following them you will not only remove any stain but also will save time and effort. With today’s stain-resistant carpeting, it is not so difficult to treat different stains and spots. The key is to treat spills immediately. So you should act quickly! There are many stainproof carpets, but even they don’t have a 100% stainproof guarantee.

First of all strive to absorb the spill. Plain white paper towels or blot liquid with a dry absorbent cloth. Don’t use printed or colored materials as they may transfer dye or ink to your carpeting. To prevent the stain from spreading, start at the outside of the spot and move to the center. Continue until the area is damp. Dried bits of food can be vacuumed up or scooped up with a spoon. Don’t use a brush and do not scrub. Brushes and scrubbing may damage your carpet.

There are a lot of cleaning products designed to treat the spot or stain. Buy an approved quality cleaning product. Though it has been laboratory tested, you nevertheless should pretest the solution in a hidden area of your carpet or on a small piece of carpet. Read the product’s directions and follow them carefully. Apply a small amount of the solution to a cloth and work in gently. Start from the edges to the center. Don’t scrub – blot. Do this several times until you remove the spot. And don’t forget that you should not use a brush. And remember to pretest the cleaning product on a small spot of carpet.

What if you don’t want to buy expensive carpet cleaner, try one of these useful homemade remedies:

Use a detergent solution to treat the stain. Mix 1/4 tsp of a dishwashing liquid with one cup of warm water. Make sure to not use laundry detergent as it may be too harsh or contain bleach.

Also, you can use plain water. Did you know that water may work better than some carpet cleaners do? You may rely on plain water or use a white vinegar solution. Mix 1 cup white vinegar (it leaves no residue) with 1 cup of water. Be careful using both cleaning solutions bought in the store and your homemade solutions. Always test the solution on a tiny area to make sure it won’t damage or discolor the carpeting.

Do you have your room in disarray and want to clean it up but don’t know how? Follow our helpful and fun tips on how to clean your room. If you are not good at keeping your room clean, enjoy next hints.

First of all, strive to clean your room quickly and effectively. You can make the cleaning process interesting by playing some game. Before you start, turn on the radio. Listening to music with a fast beat will help you clean faster. Find the music that you enjoy singing or dancing along with. If music distracts you, try listening to something that will help you concentrate, it can be a book or a podcast. Listening to natural sounds (waterfalls, campfires) is also not a bad idea.

Open the windows, let some fresh air in. Not to get drowsy during the cleaning turn on all of the lights or open the curtains to let natural light in. Make your bed. Remember that an unmade bed makes your room look messy no matter how clean it is.

Put everything where it belongs. This will help you get around your room without tripping over. Gather books, pillows, pencils and other stationary. Don’t forget about your clothes. Place any clean clothes in your dresser. Take straight down or put aside anything that is dirty.

Pull everything out from under your bed. Junk is used to accumulate there. Also pull everything out from your dressers. Separate it into several piles. Decide what you need, what to throw away, what to “giveaway”, donate or recycle, etc. Also look under the rest of your furniture. There you also can find a lot of stuff. Check under desks, end tables, bookshelves or nightstands. Then, separate different categories of things and putting them in their place. A less stuff clutters your room, the nicer it looks and feels. Prepare to deep clean your room. Dust off your dresser, desk, and bookshelf. Even a simple dusting can make your room look more inviting. Clean all surfaces carefully. Vacuum your carpeting. Empty the trash. And finally reward yourself! Do something you enjoy. Strive to keep your room and the whole house clean and neat. Invite your friends to help you clean the house, then make a small party and say thanks to everyone who has helped you make your home look clean and beautiful. It’s always more easy to do something if your friend join you.
