How I clean the carpet:
Take everything out of the room. I left a couple of things in but all the little things came out.
Vacuum with a clean vacuum. Make sure to empty the canister or bag to get the best suction.
Fill up my carpet cleaner machine with natural cleaners. I use Shaklee’s Organic Basic H, Basic G and Nature Bright. They are non-toxic so you don’t have to worry about what chemicals are on the carpet that your kids play on all day. Did you know that carpet cleaners are some of the fumes to inhale? I use Organic Basic H to wash the carpet (about 1 T per gallon), Basic G to disinfect the carpet (about 1 T per gallon) and Nature Bright to bright dull carpet if needed (several scoops depending on your carpet – if you use this make sure to rinse well and vacuum after dry).

Let the carpet dry. I don’t let anyone go in the room for several hours but it is usually dry after an hour.
Dust all furniture and put back. Remember do not put back any clutter. This might be a good time to simplify! Only put back the essentials!
Enjoy your fresh, clean carpet!
