Different Types of DIY Car Carpet Cleaner

Mainly there are two categories for carpet fibers: 

Types of Carpet Fibers

1) Natural Carpet Fiber

If you have natural fiber carpeting in your car i.e. wool, cotton, or silk, then it requires more care compared to synthetic fiber. Below are the ways to make homemade cleaners for natural carpet fibers.

♦ Detergent Cleaner: Take one teaspoon of transparent liquid dishwashing solution and mix it with 1 cup of lukewarm water. 

♦ Vinegar Solution: Add ¼ cup of white vinegar into a ¼ cup of water and make the mixture. 

♦ Ammonia Solution: Mix 1 tsp of pure household ammonia into ½ cup of warm water.

Once these natural carpet cleaners are made fill them into spray bottles and sprinkle them on the car carpet stains. 

2) Synthetic Carpet Fiber

Being machine-made, synthetic car carpet fiber is much more stain-resistant including nylon, polyester, polypropylene (olefin), etc. Here are ways to make types of synthetic homemade car carpet cleaner.

♦ Vinegar Solution: Take two cups of water and add 1 cup of white vinegar into it. 

♦ Detergent Solution: Add ¼ tsp of a liquid dishwasher into 1 cup of warm water. You can use an oil solvent or nail polish remover.

Dip a white clean cloth in these homemade car carpet cleaners for synthetic fibers and rub them into the stain. Never pour them directly into the stain.
