When someone spills juice or red whine on your carpets, try using club soda as an easy inexpensive stain fighter.  Club soda works best on fresh stains, so be sure to act quickly. 

It’s not just people that have accidents, pets have them also.  If this happens remember Hydrogen peroxide is another great household substance when it comes to breaking down the ‘crystals” of urine and pulling out stains.  Combine it with naturally deodorizing baking soda and you have another great solution for cleaning up stains. 

Keep in mind that not all stains can be removed. Hard water stains in bathroom showers and sinks may not be something that can be removed no matter how hard you try.  A good prevention for this is to wipe down shower stalls and floors with a squeegee after each shower.
