How to Remove Carpet Stains

I searched for this topic and i thought of sharing it here. The carpet at the kids playroom got a stain from an art material of my son. Hopefully it will fade away after i tried these steps

  1. Blot the excess. This is the overarching rule of carpet-stain cleaning. Don't soak or wipe it, otherwise you're stuck with the stain for life.

  2. Step 2

    Know your stain. Figure out what kind of stain you have on your hands. Unlike clothing, carpet stains can often be difficult to discern after a few moments. Smell it if you have to. Seriously.

  3. Step 3

    For grease stains, dab with a small amount of dry-cleaning fluid. Then, blot with a small amount of dishwashing liqiud and warm water. Blot from the outside in, and let stand for five minutes.

  4. Step 4

    For juices and wines, mix a small amount of laundry detergent with lukewarm water (or ammonia) and blot the stain. Then, sponge lightly with club soda and blot on the detergent-water solution again.

  5. Step 5

    For eggs and dairy products, blot with ammonia and sponge with warm water. Then, blot with white vinegar and warm-water mixture.

  6. Step 6

    For ink, blot with dry-cleaing fluid, and then repeat the steps for step 3:

  7. Step 7

    Place paper towels over the stain and let dry, overnight if you have to. This is a universal step that should be performed after steps 3-6 (depending on stain type).

  8. Step 8

    Brush clean and vacuum once the stain is dry. The flat brush should pick up and dried particles that are lingering, and the vacuum will do the rest.
