  1. I’ll never buy store bought soap scrub again. I am super impressed. Thank you so much. Everything counts in small amounts !

    1. Well thank you very much! So glad you liked it. It really does work and smell so nice. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. how much water do you add to solution (warm or cold water)

  3. Ur not supposed to use soap for shampooing Ur carpet..attracts dirt after cause shampoo leaves residue

  4. Ty but the yelling is unnecessary

  5. I just made this and it quickly all turned into like goop/ putty.

    1. Oh wow. I’ve never run into that so I have no idea how that would even happen, or how I could begin to help in that situation. So sorry that happened to you!

  6. Just bought a bissel spotclean proheat so Jw if this really does work.

    1. Life with Kristy not bad at all ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป. Very impressed with how effective and simple it is.

    2. Life with Kristy I literally just made the solution so Iโ€™ll keep you posted ๐Ÿ˜Š

    3. I really like the results, but you’ll have to come back and tell me your review of it if you try it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Is it safe for cats?

    1. Hi Wendy! I don’t have cats and don’t feel comfortable telling you anything 100% I have dogs and kids and this solution has never harmed any of them. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be safe for cats, but you may just want to double check with your vet before using just to be safe.

  8. I have the hoover smartwash and it has a separate tank for the cleaning solution because it mixes with the water automatically. How would I use this??

    1. Hi- I have the same shampooer as yours. Have you had a chance to try this recipe and how. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

  9. I’ve been using your recipe for a while switching back and forth from several different store bought ones and this recipe in my opinion cleans the best, and considering i have a small dog who has accidents thats saying a lot !

  10. Woww but can you plz tell where to put this liquid in other kind of vacuum cleaner

    1. This won’t work in a regular vacuum. Only carpet cleaners which are separate machines.

  11. You donโ€™t called it chocolate water , it was disgusting water .how can you can you say that ? ๐Ÿ˜ก

    1. How can I say what? Of course the water was disgusting. I’ve never seen someone shampoo carpets and the water not be disgusting. That’s kinda the whole reason they are being shampooed. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ Thanks for watching though!

  12. Honestly since I watch your video I been using this Everytime I have to clean my carpets, it really works really good ! Good Job! Thank you !

    1. Oh goodness that is such a compliment. Thank you very much! I’m so glad it’s been working so well for you. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  13. Omg your the best my house smells better and is much cleaner with this solution

    1. Oh, I LOVE to hear that! So glad it worked well for you. โค

  14. My manager let be borrow their carpet cleaner. I felt so honored! Will be trying this very soon. Thanks!

    1. Oh, how nice of them! I hope you enjoy. โค

  15. Great video. Highly appreciate it.

    1. Thank you very much! โค

  16. Thank You Soooo Much!
    Saved me some $๐Ÿ‘

    1. Oh, I love to hear that. So glad it helped!โค

  17. I add some bleach to the waterside. And use some laundry detergent, water, and fabric softner on the cleaning liquide side. I have light carpet so it works well.

    1. Add 2 tbsp of borax. Safe for all colors and gives it a boost for stains

    2. What a great idea. I’ll have to give that a try. Thanks for sharing!

  18. I’m going to try this tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it works. I can hardly wait.

    1. How did it go?

  19. I’ve been doing this for years! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ’•

    1. Hope you enjoy! โค

  20. Wow in the kitchen sink though smh..

    1. Yep…in the sink. Thanks for watching! ๐Ÿคช

  21. Omfg your music is sooooooo annoying n loud gotta mute u every min wtf

  22. Can you use this solution on upholstery? ie..sofa and fabric car seats

    1. Hi Kimberly! Yes, this solution should be safe on those fabrics as well. Hope you enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I LOVE YOU ARE YOU SINGLE

    1. timothy moelk creepy fuck

    2. You get me horney you just turn me on so much you would love how I would make you feel it’s like I can almost feel you when I look at you I can feel your heart and moans which makes me want you even more

    3. Depends…how much money ya got? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Watch my latest video, it should answer this.

  24. Neat carpet cleaner!! โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ Ingredients seem to be a blend of a couple of the other online ones.

    Hey – where did you get that handy plastic tablespoon amount measurer?! โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ

    1. Oh shoot…I forget that not everyone watching may be in the US. Yes, Ross is a US store I believe. They sell good priced clothing, furniture, home goods, type of things.

    2. @Life with Kristy You’re welcome!! (Is Ross an American store? I am from the UK – was hoping you’d say Amazon!! โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ)

    3. I have had that measuring spoon for awhile, so sadly I cannot remember exactly where it came from. If I had to guess I would say Ross. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for watching!

  25. Soap of any kind is bad for carpet ..It attracts dirt…Builds up over time ….Snuggle is no good …
    This is why carpet cleaners have no soap in them …

    1. Thank you for your concern! I’ve looked up many “recipes” online and researched and found this was the solution that worked best for me. I’ve never experienced any problems.

  26. After u use it with the soap etc., do u still do it again with just plain water?

    1. Life with Kristy thank you!:)

    2. Hi Lei! Generally I do not go back and just use plain water. It really just depends on what I’m cleaning and how dirty it was. Hopefully this helps. Thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. I like to add alchohol.

    1. Alcohol would be an excellent addition!

  28. Thanks for the video I’m about to use this recipe for spot cleaning. And just an fyi for you, please be careful doing your own carpet cleaning, non commercial carpet cleaning vacuums are notorious for not sucking up enough water. I once had a mold problem under my carpet due to this lol. My advice is to run the vacuum over it a second time without the water.

    1. Hope you like it! Thank you very much for the tip. It’s funny shorty after filming this we actually got rid of most of our carpet and put down wood flooring. ๐Ÿ˜œ

  29. Good skull

  30. Can you use this with a Bissel Crosswave ?? for hard floors?

    1. Hi Fernando! I am not entirely sure as I’ve never tested it out on hard floors. If you do try I would suggest testing in a small area first before doing the entire floor. Let me know how it works if you do test it out. I’d love to know! ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. I gotta try this..i got most of these items too

  32. thanks Kristy!

  33. Cool! I have heard that Dawn is really better. I have not tried it but will try your tips and see. Thanks for the share! :O)

    1. it is… really gets stains and dirt out better… if it can get crude oil off a ducks back it can get any muck out of your carpet.

    2. Thank you! I’ve tried it both ways and couldn’t tell a difference but I know most DIY cleaners you see everyone suggest the dawn.

  34. Never ever use any type of soap to clean carpets ..It builds up and will attract dirt ….
    Once in carpet its not coming out …

    1. sproulman1 then what do you use all cleaners have some sort of detergent in them ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

  35. good video but would have been much better without the loud music

    1. Thanks for the suggestion! I’m always trying to make my videos better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. would have been so much better without the loud music

  37. Ily ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

  38. So do I just double triple etc…the measurements if I want to make a bigger batch?

    1. Life with Kristy Thanks!

    2. Yep, you’re exactly right. The recipe I have here makes enough solution for me to fill up my machine about a handful of times.

  39. Her voice is annoying. Like Janice from “Friends.”

    1. I wish voice comments were a thing so I could properly respond to this comment. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thanks for your view!

  40. Just tried it, Im waiting the 3 hours to clean it!

    1. I hope it works well for you! You gotta let me know how it turns out. ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. Why would you put that in your sink you put in a stool

    1. Dont you wash dirty dishes in ur sink or do u use toilet water?

    2. I guess she asked why would you pour the dirty water in the sink and not the toilet?

      Thanks for the ingredients! Awesome video!

    3. Hi Vicki! I don’t understand your question. What stool are you speaking of?

  42. I’m about to use this!!! Thank you much!

    1. I hope you like it! You’ll have to let me know how it turns out. ๐Ÿ˜

  43. To be honest, I’m about to try that right now. Big thanks kristy !!!

  44. 4 Tbsp=1/4 cup…No disrespect in any way ๐Ÿ˜Š,just an easier,faster way for me…All in all, this is amazing and it works great…Thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ˜

    1. No worries, you’re exactly right! I don’t know why it never dawned on me to say it that way.

  45. What accent is that??๐Ÿง

    1. Hi Cara! It’s a good ole North Carolina southern accent. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  46. Love the idea…thanks

  47. I just have dry vacum cleaner here,how to make it suitable ??
    Thx

    1. If you only have a dry vac and your carpet is light you can wet it with vinegar and sprinkle baking soda. Once it dries..may take a couple days, just vacuum.

    2. This isn’t a regular vacuum, that’s totally separate. This is a carpet shampooer so all it does is wash the carpet and doesn’t actually vacuum. With dogs and kids it comes in SO handy sometimes! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  48. Beware if you buy a new carpet cleaner this could void the warranty but otherwise this looks great!

    1. Or you could just not tell them. No idea how they would know

    2. Thank you so much for looking out for me! I really appreciate that. Wouldn’t you know since I filmed this video we have put in wood flooring and now no longer have a need to shampoo like I needed to before. ๐Ÿ˜œ

  49. I literally bought a shampooer last night! This is going to be so helpful. I can’t believe how much the solution costs, I even got great value brand and it was still $12-$13 a bottle and the name brand was $24!!

    1. Yes girl! The solution is SO darn expensive…and if you have a big house you need quite a bit of it. I usually have to fill up my shampooer 2 or 3 times just to clean the living room. This homemade solution makes your house smell just like fabric softener. I love it! Hope you like it too if you try it out! ๐Ÿ˜€

  50. Very good

  51. Our steam cleaners look the same but my mine has to spouts one for water one for solution.

    1. It’s crazy how many different carpet cleaners there are. Even the same brands have more than 1 option.

  52. Nice! I bet that smells great!!

    1. It smells SO good! ๐Ÿ˜„

  53. Love how easy and budget friendly this is! Great idea kristy๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’•

    1. Thanks so much lady!! ๐Ÿ’•
