How to get those drinks stains out of your carpet
Category: Carpet Cleaning
When a drink gets accidentally spilled then it's important to tackle it fast, or else it may well stain and become a permanent feature on your carpet.
First things first, grab a clean cloth and blot up as much of the liquid as you can. Don't scrub it though as this will make the stain spread. When you've soaked up as much of the liquid as possible, then add a small amount of water to the cloth and keep blotting.
If you can still see the mark, then try a regular carpet stain remover, following the instructions on the pack. Hopefully this will remove the stain completely, but sometimes, especially with red wine, this doesn't work.
If you're struggling, then a good trick to try is vinegar. Mix equal amounts of white wine vinegar and water and apply it to the stained area. Leave it for a few minutes to really soak in then sponge it with water and continue to blot.
Unfortunately, if you have a light-coloured carpet such as beige or cream then you may find that however much effort you put in, you just can't get the stain off the carpet.
For particularly stubborn stains then it's recommended that you hire a professional carpet cleaner. Not only can they remove any stains, they can get your carpet back to looking as pristine as when you first got it.
