Did you hear that? It was all of us breathing a big sigh of relief as lockdown measures were lifted. Finally, we can safely have friends and family over for a visit. Can you hear that second, more panicked noise? That’s all of us freaking out about entertaining again! If you’ve put off your spring deep clean then you’re probably wondering how you can possibly make your home presentable, quick! If you have guests already on their way over, you need our tips on how to freshen carpet quickly!
First, Clean the Clutter
Even when our home is clean, piles of clutter can make it look more disorganized than it actually is. Now, if guests are coming over, now isn’t the time to Marie Kondo your home or come up with a new, elaborate organization scheme. Just clear off the surfaces and find somewhere to stash the clutter for the time being. (And actually remember to deal with it later!)
Wipe Up the Spots From Surfaces
You may have gotten away with a few selfies with a messy mirror, but having guests over is a different story. Your windows are probably fine, but bathroom mirrors and faucets, as well as table surfaces, need a wipe down. When it comes to dusty surfaces, this is the perfect time to enlist the assistance of other family members like your kids. (You’ll run a vacuum in the next step in case they end up pushing a lot of dust onto the floors!)
While deep cleaning carpets is important for the overall look and longevity of your carpets and rugs, you can just stick to major spots when you’re in a hurry. And with 1001, improvement is just a few sprays away! If you want to know how to fresh carpet and make sure it looks clean, start by doing this:
- Blot any liquid stains to remove excess liquid, or use a knife to lift solid pieces of hardened mess.
- Apply 1001 Carpet Stain Remover and wait for a maximum of 5 minutes.
- Massage the product into the stained area.
- Remove excess liquid with a dry cloth.
- Leave the area to dry, then vacuum
