Why do you have to do it by hand?

What are you trying to clean from the carpet?

If you get the carpet wet with soap and scrub it - how do you intend to remove the dirt/water??

Resolve and Woolite for two, sell a whole rug spray, that you just spray and then vacuum when dry. Not sure if there's any scrubbing involved or not. Sounds like this would work for you if you must clean by hand.

When we had kids, a dog and cat and carpet it quickly became obvious that the powdered carpet cleaners were little more than deodorizers.
Might be good to freshen up a fairly clean carpet but if you have a spill or soiling of some type putting down and picking up a water and soap solution is really the only way that works.

If you can borrow a good wet/dry vac you could use a soapy solution and a brush to clean and the wet vac to pick up the dirty water.
