The Best Stain Removing Products and Cleaning Tips

To take the usual stain suspects out of carpets and upholstery, these are the best homemade solutions (apply each with a towel):

Dish soap: ¼ teaspoon nonbleach product (such as Dawn, Joy, or clear Ivory) plus 1 cup water.
Vinegar: 1 part white vinegar, 1 part water.
Ammonia: 1 tablespoon clear household formula plus 1 cup water.
Hydrogen peroxide: ½ cup plus 1 teaspoon household ammonia. (When using the store-bought cleaners or solvents mentioned in the following slides, follow the package directions. For all the treatments, test on an inconspicuous spot first.)
