Carpet is one thing that many homes just cannot live without. Even if you take your shoes off at the door, and insist on food and drinks remaining in the kitchen, it is inevitable that you will deal with stains. If you think your carpet is a lost cause, there is good news. Some of the most difficult stains will remove with ease if you have the right items. Here are some of the toughest carpet stains and how you can remove them with ease.
Red Juice or Wine
If the stain is fresh, try to remove as much of the liquid with paper towels. Any extra liquid left behind can be cleaned with dish liquid or lemon juice. However, if the stain has sat in the carpet for a while, it is best to use a different method. Get a spray bottle and fill it with half ammonia and half water. Spray the stain and allow it to penetrate for about 10 minutes. Place a white towel down on top of the stain. On top of the white towel, place a steam iron. Let the iron sit on top of the carpet and steam. Be sure not to leave too long in one spot or it will burn the carpet. The stain will be absorbed into the towel.
Using a spray bottle, fill it with a mixture of half water and half vinegar. Soak the affected area until it is dripping wet. Allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes. Once it has penetrated, use a towel to remove the excess moisture from the carpet. Lastly, cover the area with an even coat of baking soda. Allow this dry ingredient to mix with the wet for about another 10 minutes.
