How To Use Toothpaste To Remove Stubborn Stains From Your Carpet
Carpet stains can present a cleaning challenge, but one surprising household item is super effective against various kinds of small stains: toothpaste.
Toothpaste, being a gentle abrasive, can help lift stains right off your carpet. Plus,
it is a gentle detergent, capable of breaking down the complex elements
of most stains.
However, remember to avoid whitening toothpaste or ones with colorful gel as they can bleach or color your carpet. Stick to the simple, white, non-gel toothpaste.
Toothpaste works best for small stains (think 6 inches or less in width.) Squeeze a dollop of toothpaste about the size you'd use to brush your teeth into a small bowl.
Add ¾ cup of water to the bowl with the toothpaste, and stir the mixture until the toothpaste is fully dissolved and frothy. Then, dip a clean rag into the homemade foamy cleaner.
Let the rag soak for about five to ten seconds, place it on the stain, and gently rub it in circular motions. Lifting the stain completely may take a few rounds
of gentle scrubbing.
