The carpet is, perhaps, the most comfortable floor covering in the home. It makes the home warm and welcoming, invites us to walk barefoot on it, even sit down and enjoy playing a family game or watching TV together.
Spilling something on the carpet is quite a common and unpleasant problem. The worst is when we spill something that leaves long lasting and stubborn stains.
Before we try to help you fight carpet stains, please note that you should never scrub the stains because the dirt penetrates even deeper into the carpet fabrics.
How different carpet stains?
Red wine is very difficult to remove not only from fluffy carpets, but also from clothes in general. If you let the stain dry, things get even more complicated. If you rub the carpet, the stain fades and its purple hue spreads even further.
To remove it most easily, pour a glass of white wine directly over the red to neutralize it. Dampen a cotton cloth with cold water and blot the stain. Then cover the stain tightly with s alt. Let it dry, then vacuum.
If there is a piece of greasy food on the carpet, sprinkle again liberally with s alt, baking soda or cornstarch. These products have the property of sucking out the fat and drying the tissue.
Do not rub under any circumstances. Just let it sit for a few hours, then vacuum up the s alt or soda.
Fruit Sticky Juices
The best way to deal with fruit spots that stick when dry is to treat them with shaving cream. Rub the cream gently, not vigorously, then wipe thoroughly with a wet cloth.
Coffee and tea also make stubborn stains that can affect the color of your favorite carpet.To remove them from its delicate surface, mix equal parts warm water and white vinegar. Wet the stain well, let it soak well to absorb the rest of the stain. Then blot with a paper towel.
It is important not to try to clean the mud while it is still wet and fresh. Wait for it to dry completely. Run the vacuum cleaner on maximum suction power. Suck everything you can with her help. Then tap the carpet vigorously with a mallet.
If any stain still remains, soak the affected area with sparkling water. Then blot with a dry clean cloth. Do this until the stain is completely gone.
If you have a pet or a small child you know that urine stains can appear at any moment.
Urine stains come out most easily with regular detergent. Dissolve it in warm water, soak a cotton cloth and rub gently - not aggressively, remember!
Rinse with clean lukewarm water and absorb.
