How to Clean Carpet


Your carpet gets quite a bit of foot traffic on any given day, so not just any carpet cleaning product will do the job. From tracked-in mud, dirt and dust, pet stains and odors, spilled food and drinks, Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner can spot-clean carpet stains or even work in a carpet cleaning machine for deep cleaning carpet fibers.



  1. Remove the mess and blot up any liquid from the carpet before you begin cleaning.
  2. Dampen the stain with clean warm water.
  3. Spray a solution of 1 oz. Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner and 1 cup water onto the stain.
  4. Gently rub and blot with a clean damp towel or absorbent cloth.
  5. Air dry: Allow the area to dry completely before resuming foot traffic.
If you're unsure about how Simple Green will affect a surface, be sure to spot test before cleaning.


  1. Mix 4 oz. Simple Green per 4 oz. water into your carpet cleaning detergent tank. For carpet cleaning machines without a separate solution tank, mix a 1:10 ratio of Simple Green to water.
  2. Apply solution onto the carpet in sections, using the carpet cleaning machine according to manufacturer's instructions.
  3. For tough stains, agitate the affected area by gently brushing or scrubbing the area (a soft nylon brush works best).
  4. Extract with the carpet cleaner and clean water. If necessary, add a small amount of white vinegar to reduce foaming in the recovery tank
  5. Air dry: Allow the area to dry completely before resuming foot traffic.
