Getting new furniture is one of the best things about moving into a new house. The boys’ room looks pretty similar to how it did when we revamped the old dresser, with blues and oranges and clean lines that go well with a massive overload of cars and trucks.
With two little boys sharing a room, there’s lots of action. And spills. Already Sam has peed on the floor (twice), pizza has been thrown, and strawberries have been used during a game of hide & seek. The furniture is holding up great. The new carpet? Not so much.
Hydrogen Peroxide Carpet Stain Remover
I cringe thinking about spraying it with a commercial cleaner when the boys spend so much time rolling around on the floor. After some searching I found a 1-ingredient cleaner that took up spills like a boss. Even a week old pizza stain.
Yes, all you need is hydrogen peroxide, that’s it! Just apply the peroxide to a clean cloth and dab it onto the stain.
One warning: peroxide works by bleaching out the stain. Which means it could bleach the color out of the carpet. So if you have dark-colored carpet, test in a small, inconspicuous area before using.
This simple carpet cleaner has worked on 90% of my carpet accidents, but if you need to pull out the big guns try this heavy duty carpet stain remover.
I’m so excited about this I can’t even explain. Do you have a favorite natural carpet stain remover?32
YES! I cannot wait to try this. My daughters have a cute zebra print rug in their room— but the food/juice/paint/I don’t even want to know what stains all over it are driving me NUTS.
I am absolutely trying this tonight.
Baby wipes got my carpet through 2 kids, 2 cats, 1 dog, and other things like mustard potato salad, spaghetti sauce, and wine. I have to say though that hydrogen peroxide is much less expensive. I’ll try it out.

For some fabrics I use lemon juice, but I don’t find it suitable for carpets, so I will try this one instead. Is there any color change after repeated use?

From another Minnesotan, Great article. Even though I try and educate folks about carpet cleaning through my website and also on the phone, sometimes it’s nice to get a common sense tip to give them that maybe they weren’t aware of. The Hydrogen Peroxide Carpet Stain Remover is a good reminder for me to pass that info on. Thanks again for a great article on spring cleaning.

Please that little surface pizzza crust is a joke of a stain i could have got that with puddle water. Agreed Peroxide is a good additive but by itself just an old grandma’s kitchen trick but add it with OxyClean, Detergent, epsom salt and a product called super clean and now we can get down to some real stains…

Great tips! It’s always important to test any carpet cleaner in a small spot to make sure it doesn’t damage the carpet first, so I’m glad that was mentioned! A bleached spot looks ways worse than a little stain.
