A quickie carpet cleaning alternative to shampoo using Vanish Powerfoam

Here’s how to brighten a wool carpet without shampooing it. First, vacuum the carpet. Then spray the Vanish carpet cleaner. Always first test the chemical on an inconspicuous part of the carpet. If there's no color change, spray vanish powerfoam on the area you want to clean the carpet or on stain areas, you can also use a sponge instead, wring it almost dry, and lightly run it over the carpet’s surface. You can also follow 3 steps here below recommended  by manufacture.

  1.  Shake the can well and spray from an 80cm height over the area to be treated. 
  2.  Work the foam into the carpet using a clean colourfast damp sponge-mop or cloth. vanish1

How to stop fraying

Want to prevent carpet seams and edges from fraying?

Brush them with a liquid resin that locks the yarns in place as it dries. It’s sold at fabric and craft shops. The outermost braid of a braided rug usually wears out first. Save the rug from this fate by sewing a strip of bias binding around the edges of the rug.

Removing a discoloring spill

If a spill causes carpet discoloration, dip a clean, white towel into a solution of 1 tablespoon of liquid hand-dishwashing detergent (or 1/2 cup white vinegar) in 1/2 cup of warm water. Alternately dab the spot with the solution and then blot it with a clean, white towel. Repeat until all of the spot’s color transfers to the towel. Then cover the area with a clean, white towel until it’s dry.

Removing furniture imprints

To remove deep indentations left in your carpet by furniture, lay a damp bath towel over the depression and press lightly with an iron. When the towel area is dry, the indentation will be gone. If you must replace furniture on a freshly cleaned carpet before it has dried completely, place coasters under the legs to prevent stains and indentations.
