  • Get one of those steam cleaners. If the steam is hot enough you can clean everything with it. The steam will kill germs, too.

  • when the vinegar dries, the smell is gone - it does not stick around like some cleaners.

  • use vinegar, It works for almost everything. Way cheaper too. You can even steam clean carpets with it. Unlike carpet cleaner it does not attract dirt, so basically after you steam clean the carpet cleaner stays in your rugs and attracts all the dirt from pets and shoes and makes your carpets dirty faster. Vinegar leaves no residue!
