Carpet shampoo is among the most expensive types of cleaning products currently available. But don't fret—you no longer have to put off cleaning your carpet for fear of breaking the bank. Making your own carpet shampoo is well within the grasp of any cost conscious cleaning enthusiast. So the next time your home's carpets are in need of a vigorous cleaning, just consult this helpful guide.

Step 1 - Start Mixing

Now that you've gathered all your ingredients, you're ready to begin making your carpet shampoo. Start by mixing 1/4 cup of mild detergent with 2 cups of warm water and 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Once your carpet shampoo ingredients have been thoroughly mixed, you'll be ready to move on to the next step.

Step 2 - Start Whipping

Now that you've successfully completed the mixing process, it's time to whip the freshly mixed ingredients. Whip the ingredients until they've formed a white foam. This can be accomplished with the aid of an eggbeater. Once the foam has been produced, you'll have a fresh batch of carpet shampoo.
