Rug cleaner solutions

My neighbor moved and left me several bottles of rug cleaner solutions. Can these be diluted and used for any other cleaning?

I haven't tried it myself, but I know Cascade Complete is recommended for dishwashers because it has a lot of enzymes, which dissolve fdood bits. So unless there's food on your tiles...

My personal experience with various rug cleaners resulted in a very stinky house and lots of cleaner build up in the carpet that attracted more dirt fast.

Best solution for carpet spot treatment is white vinegar water, blot well, dry with fan. No residue left in the carpet.

The solutions you inherited might clean your driveway.

For white rugs, bleach can be an effective rug cleaning solution, as well as a disinfectant. It should be diluted to about one cup of bleach to every gallon of water.

In another post someone recommended using various cleaning liquids on a shower door to remove soap scum. It's worth a try. Otherwise I'd use it to clean the driveway, as krissie suggested, or a patio or porch etc.

I am not sure as I haven't tried them I always took professional service for cleaning my rug and would suggest you to take expert help rather than relying on marketed products.
