  1. For the video it's written baking soda but in the video he says baking powder, which one is to be used?

  2. Also use white vinegar instead of fabric softener – I use when my towels needed softening (too much softener can cause them to be rough). Works every time

  3. Question baking powder and baking soda are two different things you are representing both which one is it? LOL I know it's baking soda

  4. This is fucking moronic. Baking soda and vinegar kill bacteria and remove odors because they're strongly basic and acidic respectively. Mixing them together neutralizes them! That makes spraying that mixture on anything pointless.

  6. After spraying the mixture, is there anything wrong if we use Vacuum cleaner?

  7. A professional way to do it at home, hot water and salt boiled mix with vinegar on a spray bottle to disinfect both sides, Rinse & Let dry. next mix alcohol and baking soda in a spray bottle damp rug both sides, Rinse with water then shampoo the rug with your favorite aroma scent. I been doing this for years since 1987 the old way. There's no need for chemicals in cleaning. DO IT THE SAFE WAY.

  8. What happens when you sleep through chemistry class and end up cleaning carpets…

  9. How many teaspoons of baking soda exactly??…a couple could be 3 or 4, or 5….

  10. If you mix vinegar and baking soda in a closed container/bottle it can explode. The fizzing when you mix the two (just in general) is the acid based reaction and then afterwards it just carbon dioxide gas and water. Using them separately is most effective.

  11. Ya he don't know which one or he wouldn't be saying baking powder then saying baking soda, so which is it ? Gezzz learn your products if your going to give advice

  12. could I just mist the mixture around, let dry, then vacuum? in place of other products like Febreze? I have used vinegar to clean dog urine off vinyl, works well.

  13. Like someone else already mentioned, the baking soda neutralizes the acid in the vinegar and basically turns it into water. You are spraying your carpet with water (or water with some left over baking soda in it). Either will "clean" and baking soda is known to remove odors but the vinegar is useless here and anybody that touts this mixture should be avoided because they have no idea what they're doing.

  14. Baking soda = alkali Vinegar = acid
    Acid + alkali > CO2 + water

  16. Thank you soo much. My daughter vomitted all through her bed and the carpet and the smell was unbearable. This solution worked quickly the odor vanished almost instantly and took no time at all. Definitely keeping this one in my cleaning book!!!

  17.   You said use baking SODA, AND you said baking POWDER.  They are NOT the same thing.  I believe you intended to say baking soda.  Soda is the one that does the odor removing. Not sure what would happen if the powder was used!  

  18. Yes, looking for info on how to clean the entire room with stains and human urine odors. Had a Alzheimer's family member staying in room and odor is really bad, but not sure how to mix for the entire room. Whether to mix and put in machine or put directly on carpet then use macine with vinegar and water or just vinegar? Help!

  19. my question, too, Thomas. I am involved in animal rescue and have six (yes, that's right. WTF….I know….but, anyhow. I was ill recently and unable to stay up with my pet-related responsibilites and now am overwhelmed by what has permeated my home, i.e., capet, furniture and starting to permeate my clothing….so, like, can, indeed this formula be used and EFFECTIVE in a steam carpet cleaner???????? HELP!!!!!

  20. you only give tips for small spots. nobody needs thar we need recipes for larger area carpet cleaning
