The synthetic carpets, such as carpets, vinyl, polypropylene or recycling plastic, generally have the advantage that the fibers do not absorb liquids or substances, so that dirt does not penetrate into the tissue. This makes it easier to remove stains. Using the Hoover SmartWash is important.

Natural and organic rugs are more delicate and complicated than synthetic ones. But it is still possible to remove stains with these tips. As a general rule, cleaning must be done basically with a vacuum cleaner . If it is necessary to apply liquids, finally try to remove the humidity as much as possible and aerate before placing on the floor.
If the stains are stubborn or difficult we have these other solutions:
Butter and wax stains: apply mild soap with a splash of vinegar and warm water.
