Carpet Stains

The power of vinegar on unsightly carpet stains!

Carpet stains are an unfortunate part of everyday living and can occur to even the most fastidiously clean among us. A beautiful cream carpet can be instantly tarnished with one little spill, but all is not hopeless thanks to a simple, smart home remedy that will ensure you don’t end up emptying you bank account hiring professional carpet cleaners to come and rectify the unsightly spill.

By using a combination of common household vinegar, water, and a little finesse, you’ll be removing tough carpet stains (caused by common offenders like alcohol, perfume, soda and coffee) as swiftly as they occurred with just a few simple steps!

  1.  Fold around five to eight clean paper towels into a square stack.
  2. Acquire a clean water spray bottle and pour one part white vinegar with two parts cold water into the bottle, seal tightly and shake well.
  3.  Before applying to stain, test solution on an inconspicuous part of the carpet by spraying the vinegar and blotting it dry to make sure there is no discolouration.
  4. On the stained area of carpet, use the paper towels to extract excess liquid from the area in question.
  5. Spray a generous proportion of mixture onto the stain, allowing it to soak into the stain for a few seconds.
  6. Press the stack of paper towels directly onto the stain and blot, allowing the staining ingredient to absorb into the paper towels.
  7. Continue this spray and blot method with the vinegar solution until the stain is removed.
  8. Allow the carpet to dry before walking on damp area. The vinegars aroma should fade away as it evaporates and dries.
