How do I clean my carpet?


by Debra Lynn Dadd





My daughter is 1 year old and we live in a very small one-bedroom apartment in NYC. She is crawling all over our carpet. Can you recommend an environmentally safe carpet cleaner? I am not sure what to use.


Thanks for your help!!

The simplest thing is to spread a fairly thick layer of baking soda over the carpet, let it sit overnight, then vacuum in the morning. Or, use a rented steam cleaner without the carpet shampoo.


For more instructions on cleaning carpets, Natural Choices Home Safe Products has a whole page of advice on solving different types of carpet cleaning problems using their nontoxic, oxygen-bleach based products.
