Thanksgiving Carpet Stain Removal Tips
From the Professionals at Capital Carpet
Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday to enjoy with family and friends. Great food, good drink, and sometimes tough carpet stains. Over the decades we have seen some pretty difficult carpet stains and would like to share some of our Thanksgiving holiday carpet stain removal secrets.
There are times when a professional carpet cleaning is the best solution, but a carpet stain can be removed before your next professional steam cleaning.
- Gravy Stains - If gravy is spilled on your carpet remove the excess gravy with a spoon and blot the carpet with a dry towel to remove as much liquid as possible then blot with a damp towel. Use a mild detergent with the damp towel to help remove the fat or grease. Repeat the blotting with the dry and then damp towel until the stain has been removed.
- Red Wine - Use a dry cotton towel, wick the area first then blot with a damp towel. Repeat until the stain has been removed. This may take a while but will usually remove the stain and is safe for most any type of carpeting.
- Cranberry Stains - Cranberry sauce spilled on your carpet can be a challenge to remove. Use a spoon to pick up the excess cranberry sauce and then Blot first with a dry towel and then blot with a damp towel. If the stain remains use a small amount of detergent (liquid hand soap) and gently rub the stain, use a damp towel to wick out the detergent.
- Small Food Spills - The dry and then damp towel method usually works well. Blot first with a dry towel. and then blot with a damp towel. If the stain remains use a small amount of detergent (liquid hand soap) use the damp towel to wick out the detergent.
