Rugs are an excellent way to add texture and warmth to any space but can also attract spills and stains. While professional rug cleaning is advised every 12 to 18 months, you can apply some simple DIY spot removal techniques to keep your carpets looking good. We at carpet cleaning cammeray have put together some of our top advice for removing typical rug stains.
Blot, Don’t Rub: The first thing to do after spilling something on your rug is to blot the stain with a dry, clean cloth or paper towel. Next, rub the paint, making it more deeply embedded in the fibers and more challenging to remove.
Club soda can save your life when spilling red wine or coffee. A small amount should be applied to the stain and sit there for a while. Once the soda has been absorbed, blot the discoloration with a clean cloth.
Apply an equal mixture of white vinegar and water to pet stains or odors to remove them using vinegar. After removing the paint, rinse the area with fresh water and blot again.
Baking soda: Baking soda works wonders to eliminate odors from rugs. Sprinkle a bit on the troublesome region, let it sit for a few hours, and then vacuum it up.
Shaving Cream: Shaving cream can be surprisingly helpful when cleaning stubborn stains like grease or makeup. A little bit should be applied to the color, which should then be left to sit for a short while before being removed with a clean cloth.
Hydrogen Peroxide: Combine equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and dish soap and apply the mixture to tough stains like blood or wine. After removing the paint, rinse the area with fresh water and blot again.
