Iron Stains Out Of Your Carpet with Vinegar

A friend pointed me to this trick on Life Hacker for getting stains out of your carpet.
1. Make a solution of 1/4 white vinegar and 3/4 water.
2. Spray the spot in the carpet with the vinegar solution.
3. Lay a damp towel over the spot.
4. Put a hot iron on the spot and let it sit for a few seconds.
Apparently, the stain transfers right onto the towel. My friend tried this this weekend and says it works great. Beats buying a carpet cleaner at the store.
Looks like vinegar wins again as the most useful household item.

Sharing is caring!

  1. Very interesting- I think I might try this during a naptime in the very near future. It seems like it would be just really methodical slow steam cleaning of the carpet. Since I have more than a few (thousand) stains on the carpet (thanks kids!), I might just break down and have it cleaned again. Or pick up a cleaner for my very own. I’ve found them secondhand here and there.
