Carpet Stain Remover Non-Toxic Alternative - Another Use for Thieves Cleaner
We all face carpet stains, whether is from spilled wine, the kids making a mess or countless other mishaps ending in unsightly blotches on the carpet.
Before you reach for the supermarket carpet stain remover - did you now that cleaning your carpets with carpet cleaning products has many potential dangers. Commercial carpet shampoos often contain highly toxic substances including perchlorethylene, a known carcinogen which can damage the liver, kidneys, and nervous system and ammonium hydroxide which is a corrosive which can irritate eyes, skin, and respiratory passages.
So what can you use instead? Switching to green products is an easy answer. Though, that raises the question - do the natural products work as well to remove stains?
Let's find out... This is what I use to clean carpet stains - Thieves Cleaner from Young Living.
What is Thieves Household Cleaner? It's an all-natural cleaner concentrate from Young Living. It's used in a diluted form with water to clean and sanitise. Based on the Young Living Thieves essential oil blend of clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, lemon and rosemary essential oils, the Thieves cleaner features all-natural plant based ingredients without any harmful chemicals.

How to Use Thieves Cleaner for Carpet Stain Removal
I dilute the Thieves Cleaner in a water spray bottle then spray the stain and blot away.
Mix 1 capful of Thieves Household Cleaner with about 3 cups of water in a spray bottle. Spray on carpet spots, rub clean with cloth. Can use a small amount of undiluted Thieves Household Cleaner if needed for more stubborn stains. Be sure to spot test in an inconspicuous location first.
Here's what Diane has to say about Removing Melted Crayon Stains on the Carpet with Thieves Cleaner
”Our grandchild was over to visit while I was gone. My husband let him play with crayons and our two Yorkie puppies got the crayons and chewed them up. My husband tried to get the tiny bits up with the steam mop and when I arrived home I saw black and red streaks in the carpet—the steam had melted the crayons into the carpet. I used the steam mop again, but used Thieves Household Cleaner full strength on the carpet first. I just rubbed it in and then used the steam mop. To our amazement, all of it came out!" Diane Behrens, Essential Lifestyle mag Vol 4 No 1
Here's what Kristen has to say about Removing Gum in the Carpet with Thieves Cleaner
"I found a chunk of gum stuck to our hall shag carpet. It had been there for several months, dried but thoroughly stuck to the fibers. I dabbed Thieves® Household Cleaner on a cotton ball, then rubbed it on the gum and let it sit for a minute. The gum literally just lifted off the carpet. You can rub your fingers across the treated spot. There is no way to tell there ever was any gum there!" - Kristen Grunewald in Essential Lifestyle magazine Vol 3 No 3
Here's what Corinne has to say about Removing a Red Carpet Stain using Thieves Cleaner
"I have not found a strong all-purpose cleaner that works as well as Thieves Household Cleaner. I used the Thieves cleaner to get out a huge NingXia Red stain on a tan carpet that had been there for many weeks. It worked like a miracle. I couldn't even tell anything had been spilled. Since then, I have used diluted Thieves cleaner in a spray bottle to get out stains on all of my clothes - Corinne Allen, May 4, 2007 issue of Young Living e-News
