Getting a permanent stain on your carpet is never good, especially if it dries. Getting a stain out of your carpet can be an arduous task, and it happens all the time. Here are a few ways to keep your carpet clean:
The dull side of a butter knife does a great job of helping you to scrape and scoop up any part of the spill that is yet to soak into your carpet. This helps to prevent the stain from becoming more difficult to clean and permeating deeper in your rug,
Do not rub the spillage as this will only make it worse. Dab at the area and blot it with a clean cloth or a paper towel so that the liquids get absorbed. Paper towels are advisable because they are disposable, and you can tell once they are fully soaked. The double ply brands are typically very absorbent and will remove most liquid spills in a few dabs
Club soda and a little water can help to dilute most stains and make them easier to clean. This is applicable to coffee, juice, red wine and most common liquid spills that get onto your carpet.
Continue to use paper towels or a cloth to blot the spillage area until all the liquid is totally absorbed. If you notice that the stain still persists, add some more club soda to further dilute the area before continuing with the blotting.
Use a mixture of soap and water to scrub the area cleanly. The soap will help you to clean the carpet and restore it back to how it was.
