5 Eco-Friendly Carpet Cleaning Essentials

When it comes to green cleaning it's important that you know your ingredients. There are common natural ingredients that help disinfect, deodorize and eliminate dirt.

Tea Tree Oil
This is extracted from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant which is related to myrtle. This ingredient is used to treat mould, prevent bugs and as a moth treatment moths. It's also effective for removing soap scum.

Baking Soda
We're all familiar with this powder for baking. It's commonly labeled as sodium bicarbonate on the ingredients. This cleaning ingredient is used to deodorize and essentially absorb unwanted odours.

This is an active ingredient for disinfecting and cleaning. It's effective for killing bacteria and breaking through the dirt. Thyme has a light scent to it so its smell won't be overwhelming.

Lemon and Citrus  
Lemon and other citrus fruits are common for all cleaning supplies. This primarily used as a cleanser and deodorizer. This has a high pH 2 making it acidic. This helps breakdown dirt and kills bacteria leaving a fresh scent. Lemon juice is frequently combined with baking soda for cleaning.
