Pets, children, or even our own awkwardness (let’s face it, we all have such moments) can cause ugly stains on the carpet. But even the most stubborn stains on carpets can be removed with little care and the right ingredients. You do not have to spend your hard-earned money on expensive carpets or detergents or professional carpet cleaning. Everything most likely is in your closet.
Before you try one of these stain removal methods, remember the most important thing: Never rub the stain.
Instead, pick up the spoon as much as possible and then dip with a paper napkin or a clean microfiber cloth. The movement must be on the outside of the stain to the center so that it does not spread around.
After cleaning the main one, here are some methods for cleaning different types of stains:
COFFEE AND TEA
Beer or carbonated water is an excellent choice for removing stains from coffee and carpet tea. Absorb excess moisture with a paper towel and then pour a beer at room temperature onto the stain. Use a clean cloth to drink again and repeat until the stain disappears completely. To remove traces of beer, pour a glass of water. You can remove stains from the coffee in the same way with the use of carbonated water.
Immediately after spilling the wine, sparkling water or white wine is poured onto the stain to dilute and raise the
spot itself. Then, with a clean cloth, it is tapped (do not rub!) To remove moisture. Cover with salt and vacuum when it dries.
URINE FROM PETS
Has little Jason dropped on the rug? Vinegar and Sodium Bicarbonate are your best friends for removing stains and odors. Pour enough vinegar – soak the stain, then sprinkle with bicarbonate soda. It should be done in this order or the carpet will become a volcanic experiment! Put the mixture in a bowl to keep the reaction. Do not worry if you hear rustling – just the mixture does its job. Allow to dry for a few days, then use a vacuum.
OIL AND GREASY STAINS
Removing the greasy stains from the carpet is possible – believe it or not – with a shaving cream. Apply on the stain, allow to dry and remove with a clean cloth.
Sodium bicarbonate will clean and deodorize the vomiting spots. Collect what is possible, then cover the zone with bicarbonate soda and vacuum when it is completely dry.
And finally, a simple cleaning recipe which works.
- Spray bottle
- Soda bicarbonate
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon dishwashing detergent
- 2 glass of water
Sprinkle the baking powder on the stain. Allow to stand for 10 minutes, then vacuum. If the stain is dry, spray first with water to moisten. Mix 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 1 tablespoon of detergent in the bottle with the pump. Add the two glasses of water and spray the affected area. If you do not have an empty bottle with a pump, immerse the sponge in the solution and apply it to the stain. Then dip with a cloth until the liquid is absorbed. If the stain is stubborn, a hard brush may be used, the tip of which is immersed in the solution. To rinse, immerse the sponge in cold water, apply on the stain and soak again until the liquid is absorbed.
