For Stubborn Grease, Use Dishwasher Detergent
Grease stains on a carpet can be very difficult to clean. But you can instead use a dishwashing detergent that’s designed to cut through grease. One or two drops in a cup of water can really work on a grease stain just like the detergent works on the grease on your dirty plates. Just use a spray container for your detergent solution and spray it on the stain. Then just blot it up. You may have to do this many times, depending on the size of the stain.
Heat Works Well for Wax Drippings
Candles may be romantic, but it’s hard to swoon over wax drippings on your carpet. It can dry up quickly and embed itself on the carpet. But just as heat caused the candle to drip, you can also use heat to remove the wax stain. Put a white cloth over your iron, and then use the iron to warm up the wax. It’s important that you use a white cloth, because when you heat it up you can transfer some of the color into the carpet. And don’t use the iron for more than 30 seconds. There’s always a chance you may burn the carpet too.
Use a butter knife to scrape off the wax. Then put a white paper towel over the stain and use your iron on the paper towel. The wax will melt and stick to the paper towel. After a few attempts, the stain should be gone completely.
Hydrogen Peroxide Cures Blood Stains
Blood on the carpet can be very obvious, and it can even make your carpet seem like a crime scene. But just because you nick yourself and spill some blood on the carpet doesn’t mean that the carpet is irrevocably damaged. You just need hydrogen peroxide.
The first step is to use water with a little mild detergent to loosen up the dried blood. You can then scrape off as much blood as possible. Apply some hydrogen peroxide to the rest of the stain (which will cause the solution to foam). Then use towels to dab the solution off from the carpet.
Organic Cleaners is Excellent for Pet Poop
Fido can be a very bad dog indeed. But just spray an organic cleaner on the stain. You may have to do a little scrubbing as well. Then use paper towels or a cloth to wipe off the cleaner. An organic cleaner costs only $10 or so, and you can also use it for sauces and coffee stains.
Eliminate All Sugar from Candy Stains
With children at home, sooner or later candy will stain the carpet. Start by using a butter knife or a spotter brush to scrape it off. Then you can use a sponge to apply some water with a mild soap. After you remove the candy stain, blot the area with paper towels or a cloth.
Use Soap and Water for Chocolate
Just scrape off whatever you can from the stain. Use a sponge to apply a solution of 4 parts water and 1 part soap. Then use lukewarm water to rinse it off. This should work for any dark-colored food item.
An Ironing Machine is Also Handy for Pizza
If you drop any greasy or fatty food, you again start by scraping off whatever you can with a knife. Then put on some layers of paper towel on the stain. Again the iron comes into play, but you should use the lowest heat setting. Ironing the paper towels will lift off the grease. Apply some solution of soap, white vinegar, and lukewarm water, then rinse.
Rinse off Wine with Club Soda
First, blot the stain. Then rinse it with club soda. In some cases, you may need to brush the spot with soapy water first before you rinse. This will also work for coffee and food stains.
Get Rid of Makeup with Dry-Cleaning Solvent
First spray or dab a bit of water on the makeup stain. Then rub the stain with dish soap. Pat the stain dry. Then dab the remaining stain with just 3 drops of dry-cleaning solvent.
Ice Cubes Work Well with Gum
Just get a couple of ice cubes and wrap it in a towel. Then freeze the gum solid with the ice cubes, which should take about half a minute. Then lift the gum with a spoon, and cut the carpet strands as close to the stain as you can. Just cut a small amount so the spot isn’t obvious.
Ordinary Shaving Cream is an Extraordinary Carpet Cleaner
You may have heard about other types of carpet cleaners, but there’s a chance you’ve never tried ordinary shaving cream to clean your carpet before. Shaving cream is actually quite versatile when it comes to general stains, as it can clean many types of stain.
Just apply some ordinary shaving directly over the stain, and then let it rest for about half an hour. You can then use a dry white cloth to blot the shaving cream away after it sets. After that, spray the area with a mixture of equal parts water and vinegar, then use a cloth to wipe away the solution.
