Accidentally spilled your wine on the carpet? Yikes, we know the struggle. Here are some hacks to remove stains, courtesy of your favorite Orlando carpet cleaning company!
#1: Blot, Don’t Rub
When something gets dirty, we instinctively try to rub it away. However, in this case, this is something you should avoid at all costs since rubbing can lead to the spreading of the stain. There’s also a high chance of you working the stain into the fabric, causing permanent discoloration. Therefore, the smartest way to go about this is simply blotting – applying pressure on the spot to soak up excess liquid into a cloth or sponge. Pro tip: make sure you blot inwards from the outside of the stain to make sure the stain doesn’t spread further.
#2: Attempt DIY Carpet Cleaners
Depending on the cause of your stain (wine, dirt, cooking oil, pet accidents), there are many different DIY carpet cleaning solutions that you can try to bring your carpet back to life. Some common recipes that you may or may not know include baking soda for dirt and pet accidents, as well as a combination of vinegar, dish soap, and hydrogen peroxide for wine stains. However, most of the time, these attempts are futile and if not done correctly, can make matters worse. Make sure you do your research carefully before following through with a DIY cleaner recipe and always patch test a small area first before fully committing.
