Best ways to clean a carpet and remove stains
Of course you want all your carpets to be fresh and clean. Despite vacuuming regularly, without carpet cleaning your carpets can start to look haggard and even become very dirty from constant use. So what is the best way to clean a carpet?
4 carpet cleaning and stain removal methods
In addition to the special products from HG, you can also try one of the many carpet cleaning tips mentioned on countless websites. We made a list of a few of the best ways to clean a carpet.
1. Sparkling mineral water
Sparkling mineral water contains carbon dioxide gas. Put some sparkling mineral water in a spray bottle. Spray it on the stain and rub with a dry cloth. This carpet cleaning method is most effective on fresh stains.
2. Soft soap
Dab soft soap on any stains in the carpet. Wipe away with a wet cloth and repeat if necessary.
3. Shaving cream
Another carpet cleaning method you can try is shaving cream. Spray a layer of shaving cream on the stain on the carpet and rub it in well; and don’t forget in between the fibres. Then remove the shaving cream by dabbing the carpet with hot water and a towel.
Sprinkle some baking soda on the carpet and leave it to work overnight. Don’t be stingy! Vacuum up the baking soda the next day and the stain will have disappeared.

The HG carpet cleaning solutions
HG has three different carpet cleaning products to deep clean carpets or simply remove stains. First we have HG carpet & upholstery cleaner. This carpet cleaner removes dirt thoroughly. This deep carpet cleaning product is ideal as a carpet cleaning shampoo and it also fills the uneven fibre surfaces with a dirt-repellent layer.
Walking on a synthetic carpet damages the fibres, which means they retain dirt more easily. Woollen carpets slowly lose their natural wool grease. HG carpet & upholstery cleaner solves this problem by filling uneven surfaces with a water-repellent layer. This carpet cleaning product can be used by hand or with any type of carpet cleaning machine, also known as a steam cleaner.
We also have HG spot & stain spray cleaner in our assortment. We recommend this for very large carpet stains. This spray removes stains and dirt easily and creates a dirt-repellent layer. For large, stubborn carpet stains such as coffee, wine, grease or chocolate, we recommend HG stain spray extra strong.
A dirty carpet even after vacuuming, why?
Approximately 90% of stains are caused by daily use, for example, dirty shoes or a spilled glass of soda. Or pets that curl up on your carpet. Taking off your shoes will of course help prevent tracking in dirt. Live dust mites can be very difficult to get out of the carpet with the vacuum cleaner. A steam cleaner with a special carpet cleaning product is necessary. Always vacuum the carpet well before using a steam cleaner.
