If you don’t have the extractor or steamer, you can get good results with vinegar and distilled water.  I had great results with the situation below.  I think it mixed it 50/50 for the salt crust below (I posted it somewhere on here.  I’ll edit here when I find it.).  It was a matter of soaking and blotting/wiping repeatedly.

Thanks for the replys and info, will the CUC work?

 

I'd try the method above. I think the CUC is a saline-based product, so using it on salt is counterintuitive.

You guys beat me to it.  White vinegar and water. I don't know about distilled water, what the difference is.  But it will work.   Soak it good, let it dry, use a brush to loosen the junk, then vacuum.  After that, if you need to use Carpet Cleaner to clean the whole rug (if you get a light spot from the cleaned area) then do it up.

This is perfect timing as I was just looking for an answer to this question as well.

I can confirm that the vinegar/distilled water method worked for me.  The vinegar smell is strong though.

That's what Odor Neutralizer is for 😁...

  1. You used WHITE vinegar didn't you?  And sprinkle baby powder or baking soda over it overnight and vacuum it up in the morning.  That'll take care of the smell.

Yes, I used white vinegar.  I don't have any odor neutralizer but the febreeze I had didn't work.  I'll try the baking soda next.
