When cleaning your carpets, you may at some point find yourself in a situation whereby your vacuum cleaner alone is not cleaning the carpet to your satisfaction. In this instance you want to provide a deep cleaning by including additional elements into the cleaning routine. By steam cleaning your carpeting and using Tide laundry detergent as the cleaning agent in your steam cleaning solution, you will be able to clean your carpeting in the same manner you clean your clothing, thereby providing a deep cleaning that restores the carpet to a like-new condition.
Remove the steam cleaner's steam cleaning fluid reservoir and fill it with hot water.
Pour the Tide laundry detergent into the water, using 1 tbsp. detergent per gallon of water used.
Turn on your steam cleaner and let it heat up for about 15 seconds.
Begin pushing the steam cleaner slowly back and forth across the carpeting, allowing time for the Tide detergent to penetrate into the carpet fibers. Follow the carpet cleaning machine's operating instructions.
