Tips You Can Use Immediately
Do you know the right way to respond to a carpet-related mess? Keep these tips in mind:
- The next time you spill something, avoid scrubbing. Instead of rubbing a paper towel or rag over the wet spot, lay the towel on top of the liquid and let the moisture absorb into the material. Press another clean rag firmly on the wet surface and dab up any leftover liquid. This will prevent the stain from thoroughly soaking into the carpet.
- Use a little bit of ammonia to remove blood, chocolate, and other protein spills. Get a clean spray bottle and mix one teaspoon of ammonia cleaner with half a cup of water. Spray the spot and firmly dab.
- Mix up a bottle of liquid dish soap and water; keep this bottle handy for cleaning up sticky or greasy spots. This is a great DIY solution that does not require buying any additional cleaning products.
- Trouble-shoot your vacuum. Remember that a vacuum bag already half-full will only have half the suction power; empty the bag on a frequent basis to keep vacuum suction powerful.
Some of the most stubborn and distasteful stains are caused by urine, feces, beverages, and other spills. You can use a spray bottle with a mixture of white vinegar and water to help treat these spots. Just use one part vinegar and two parts clean water. Shake the spray bottle, apply to the stain, and then dab with a clean rag or paper towel.
