Carpet Stain Removal Tips

Cordial  – Can be tricky, you must attend to the stain instantly by diluting with cold water.  Pour over stain then soak up until no colour is left on your cloth.

Coffee – Pour a solution of ammonia and soak up then a solution of white vinegar, keep alternating until stain has gone.

Blood – Rinse with a mild detergent and cold water.  Apply a solution of cloudy ammonia and soak up.

Pet Stains – Remove as much of the solids as possible then blot with a paper towel until the carpet is touch dry.  Sprinkle Bi-carb over the spot then add a splash of white vinegar.  Scrub with a sponge and cold water, then rinse with warm water then leave to dry. Vacuum.  The reason you use both cold and warm water is because faeces contain proteins and fats.

Red Wine Stain – Cover the stain with a good amount of bicarb and let it dry for a few seconds. Vacuum and re-apply a smaller amount of bicarb then a little white vinegar and scrub with a nylon brush.  Leave to dry and vacuum.
