Coffee Stains on Carpet? Here’s what to do!
Not all of us are alert and perky in the morning! Some like to wake up with a hot cup of coffee in hand. However this drowsiness can sometimes lead to accidents. So you may find yourself spilling coffee on your carpets. Have you found yourself in this situation? Read on to find out how to get these stains out!
First, blot up as much of the coffee as you can with a clean cloth. This is easiest when the stain is still fresh and wet. The important thing is to not panic! Do not rub the carpet with the cloth as this will worsen the stain. Use some cold water to wet the stain and continue blotting until some of it has been lifted.
After this, you can take a carpet stain remover and follow the instructions on the packet. If you don’t have access to a stain remover, you can make your own cleaning solution with warm water, and a little white vinegar and dish soap. If you are attempting the home-made method, continue to dab and blot the stain. It may take several minutes to remove the coffee stain from the carpet this way, but you should see a reduction. The trick is to remain patient and avoid getting frustrated and rubbing the stain.
After the stain has been lifted, rinse the area with dabs of cold water and leave it to air dry completely. Try not to walk over the area while it dries. If the stain was quite large or deep this method may not fully remove it and it might be time to call a professional. But for those little everyday coffee spills, you should be able to get your carpet looking good as new in no time!
