TIPS ON HOW TO CLEAN CARPET STAINS AND UPHOLSTERY
When cleaning your house from top to bottom, don’t forget about those pesky stains on your carpets and upholstery. Here are some tips on how to get rid of them once and for all.
There’s nothing quite like a red wine stain on your cream-coloured carpet to ruin your day. But don’t despair—there are a few things you can do to get rid of that stain for good. First, blot the excess wine with a clean white cloth. Then, make a solution of one part white vinegar and two parts water. Pour it onto the stain and blot it with another clean white cloth. Finally, spray the area with club soda and blot again. Repeat these steps until the stain is gone. For tough stains, you may need to call in a professional carpet cleaner.
Your upholstered furniture sees a lot of use—which means it also sees a lot of stains. From food and drinks to pet accidents, there’s no shortage of ways for your upholstery to get dirty. And while some stains may seem impossible to remove, there are a few general tips you can follow to get rid of them quickly and easily. First, try to blot up as much of the stain as possible with a clean white cloth. If the item is wet-cleanable, mix together equal parts water and dish soap and blot the solution onto the stain. Let it sit for 30 minutes before dabbing it with a clean cloth soaked in cold water. If the item is dry-clean only, you’ll need to take it to a professional cleaner.
With these tips in mind, you’re sure to get those tough stains out of your carpets and upholstery in no time! And once they’re gone, you can enjoy your clean home worry-free all spring long.
