How to Remove Stains From Carpets

If something dropped on carpet and made a stain, you should remove the stain from surface of the carpet and also clean the carpet from behind and let the fresh air get in touch with back side of carpet so it won’t stay wet. If carpet stays wet for long time the colors will start running ( in some carpets ) and the carpet itself will get decayed.

If something like tea, coffee or carbonated-drinks drops on the carpet, you should remove it as soon as possible with a spoon and do not let it to spread around or into the carpet. If you were lucky enough to remove it with a spoon and there remained only a little stain, you have to apply pressure with a non-colored cotton cloth to remove the remaining stain completely.

You should use non-colored cloth so the cloth itself won’t make the carpet colored.

For first attempt of using the non-colored cloth, the cloth should be wet with water and liquid-soap or carpet-washing liquid, the amount of soap or carpet-washing liquid which should be used is that much which it makes an average amount of soap-suds on carpet, for second or third.. Time of using the cloth on the carpet only being wet with water is enough.

Also remember to first add water or soap to cloth and use it, not to add these to carpet and then use cloth.

Washing or removing stains from carpet should be done with Accuracy, and it is important to spend reasonable amount of time on it.
