Great stuff! My grandson and I decided to go around the house and clean up any spots on the carpets that we could find. I had a bottle of Resolve and a bottle of this mix. We tried them both side by side. This won hands down! The commercial cleaner left lots of soapy residue and needed to be rinsed several times. This worked quickly and left no soapy residue at all. Thanks Fauve for sharing this great cleaner. Made for Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.
All I can say is WOW!
This works great! What a keeper! Thanks, Fauve! Made for Best of 2010 Tag Game as recommended by lazyme. This is going into my Best of 2011 cookbook, for certain.
I've been using this for a couple months now - wanted to wait and see if it really worked. It works great. I was cleaning this morning behind a chair and found a big dark spot - I have no idea what it was or how long it's been there, but this cleaned it up perfectly. Also yesterday my little scavenger poodle ate an Asparagus Fern and threw up about four places - on the carpet, of course. After a franic call to the vet, I cleaned it up and it came clean - even the undigested dog food (I know gross), which I'm sure has coloring in it. Thanks so much Fauve. This is all I will be using from now on.
My grandmother gave me this recipe along time ago and I haven't bought any carpet cleaner since. To anyone else having problems finding ammonia I've been finding it at the dollar store.
Been using this for years! I've had no luck trying to find ammonia recently, though!
