Will laundry detergent stain carpet?
Unfortunately, if you spill liquid laundry detergent on your carpets you will need to proceed with care. You don’t want to use the products you usually use to clean up spills as they can make the laundry detergent stain the carpet permanently.
What dissolves laundry detergent?
Once a month, run an empty, large load with 2 – 4 cups of white vinegar, depending on the machine’s capacity. The vinegar’s acidity helps dissolve the detergent and limescale build-up that may accumulate on a washing machine’s agitator and washtub.

Why is there gunk on my clothes after washing?
Have you noticed a filmy layer of mildew or “gunk” coating the inside of your top-loading washing machine? This is typically caused by stagnant water (soft or hard), detergent, and/or mildew stuck inside the unit.
Why is there detergent residue on my clothes?
If your washer water is too cold, it may not properly dissolve detergent, which may result in white “clumps” of detergent on clothing. Rewashing clothing items should remove these clumps. Running items through the dryer will also help remove these clumps.

Regular and thorough vacuuming at least once a week and more often in heavy traffic areas will remove soil and dirt particles before they become imbedded into the pile of the carpet.

Yes, you can use your laundry detergent to clean your carpets. It would work just as effective as the store-bought cleaner. In addition, it will leave your carpet smelling as clean.
Can you use Tide in a carpet cleaner?
When spot cleaning isn’t enough, it’s time to buy, rent or borrow a carpet cleaning machine. Use Tide instead of the expensive carpet cleaner. I’ve found the Tide to water ratio to be about the same as the cleaner. Fill the canister slowly to prevent the mixture from bubbling over.
