Lately I have been using white vinegar and water to clean more and more surfaces. Wondering why I wasted money for years on all these other products. My latest Cheap-Oh thing is using the Swiffer cleaner but instead of buying the expensive pads I snap paper towels on the Swiffer and spray mist of Vinegar and water on and clean the laminate flooring. Works great and costs little. :agree:

Sprinkle the baking soda over the carpet where the dark stains on it, leave it full night and wash next day. Then, it completely removes dark stains.

I often use baking soda and let it absorb the stain and then I vacuum the carpet. Sometimes I also add in dish washing liquid and vinegar if baking soda and water isn't enough.
