Removing Stains

Your best chance for removing a stain is to deal with it as quickly as possible after the spot is made. The longer it sits on the carpet, the less chance you have of removing it.

Arm yourself with a clean white absorbent cloth or tissue and four basic solutions listed below. Always remove any solid matter first with a spatula or similar.

Note: Please check that your carpet is colourfast and safe to clean by testing the solutions in an inconspicuous area before applying them.

  • Dry cleaning solution - surgical spirit
  • Detergent solution - one teaspoonful of gentle detergent in warm water
  • Detergent & Vinegar solution - Add one teaspoonful of white (not malt) vinegar to the detergent solution
  • Ammonia solution - one teaspoonful of branded household ammonia to one cup of warm water

Alcohol, Coffee, Tea, Foods and Urine

Blot up surplus spillage. Use detergent vinegar solution. Work from the outer edge of the stain inwards, using small amounts at a time, blotting frequently with a dry white cloth (see below for final rinse procedure)

Chocolate, Sweets, Blood, Glue, Ice Cream, Milk, Soft Drinks and Vomit

Scrape up excess with a spatula or blunt knife. Use a detergent solution starting at the outer edge. Blot dry. Follow up with Ammonia solution and then blot dry (see below for final rinse procedure)

Solids, Fats, Tar, Chewing Gum, Oil and Shoe Polish

Scrape up excess with a blunt knife. Use a dry cleaning solution followed by Detergent and Vinegar solution. Blot dry. (see below for final rinse procedure)

Unknown Stains

Scrape up or blot surplus spillage. Use a Dry cleaning solvent followed by clean lukewarm water. Blot dry. If further treatment is needed, use either a Detergent or Detergent/Vinegar solution. Blot dry (see below for final rinse procedure)

Final Rinse Procedure

This rinsing procedure is applicable to all the above methods of stain removal. Simply mix one part white vinegar and four parts water. Pour mixture into a spray bottle and spray over the stained area. Blot dampened area (do not rub) to remove excess moisture. Spread white kitchen towel (stacked 6-8 sheets deep) over the affected area and place a weight, such as a book, directly on top. This will help the moisture residue soak into the towels. Leave overnight and repeat if necessary.
