Stain First Aid

We all have those moments when – despite our careful tiptoeing – we spill on the carpet. And those of us with kiddos know that carpet stains are pretty much guaranteed. The only question is when we will find them.

CLEANING SOLUTIONS TO HAVE ON HAND:

1. DETERGENT: Mix 1/2 teaspoon clear dishwashing detergent with one cup of warm (not hot) water.

2. PRE-SOAK SOLUTION: Mix 1 teaspoon enzyme laundry detergent (such as Axion, Biz, or others) with one cup of water.

3. DRY POWDER CLEANER: Use powdered carpet cleaners.

4. DRY CLEANING SOLVENT: Non-oily, non-caustic type sold as spot removal for garments. Caution: May be flammable

BASICS OF STAIN FIGHTING

tips-carpet-cleaning

The best cure for a spill is a fast response. If a spill is allowed to become a stain, it will be much more difficult to remove.

There are three important techniques used to treat a stain, hopefully before it has a chance to set in your carpet:

APPLY: Wet a clean, white (not printed) paper towel with a cleaning solution. Then dampen the carpet with it. Avoid wetting the carpet through to its backing.

BLOT: Absorb the excess liquid from the carpet by pressing straight down with a clean, dry, white paper towel. Do not rub. Place a half-inch thick pad of clean, dry, white paper towels with a weight on top and leave overnight if necessary.

SCRAPE: Gently scratch the soiled area with the blunt edge of a spoon. Scrape from the outside edge of the spot toward the center.
