It’s smart to use professional carpet cleaning to keep your home looking its best, but there are times when you’re in a jam and need a quick carpet cleaning solution to remove different types of stains.
Let’s take a look at some of the different types of stains you may encounter and how to deal with them:
- Ink stains – You can use rubbing alcohol to try and remove the stain. Use a clean cloth with a bit of rubbing alcohol on it and blot the stain starting at the edges and moving inward. Repeat until the stain has faded away.
- Red wine – First, blot the stain with a cloth. Continue to use fresh spots on the cloth and try to soak up as much as you can. After that, you can try a couple of different solutions to deal with the stain. You can use a stain remover if you have one handy (be sure to follow the directions). You can also try using a mixture of baking soda and water to remove the stain. Mix three parts baking soda with one part water until it turns into a paste–like substance and pat it through the stain. Once it’s dry, vacuum it off. Lastly, you can try shaking salt onto the stain and vacuuming it off.
- Nail polish – Once again, blotting is your best friend. If your carpet is lighter, try using non-acetone nail polish remover. Pour a little bit onto a cloth or rag and blot the stain. If your carpet is darker, trying using rubbing alcohol.
We hope the tips we’ve shared today are helpful and come in handy when you’re in need of a quick solution.
