How to Remove Carpet Stains

1. Whenever Possible Clean Up Spills Immediately

2. Clean Blood, Chocolate, Coffee, Tea, Mustard, Vomit, Urine and Wine Stains with Ammonia

3. Removing Fat, Oil or Wax from Your Carpeting

Simply place the paper towel or cloth over the stain and then set your  steam iron on warm and set it over the towel and gently press down.

4. Removing Gum from Your Carpet

All you need is enough ice to freeze the gum in your carpet, and something blunt to break the gum once it freezes (a spoon will do). Once the gum is frozen and broken up into small pieces, all you need to do is vacuum up those small pieces of gum.

5. Removing Ink Stains

Simply spray the hair spray onto the stain (coating it well) and then  use a clean light cloth to blot up the stain. Repeat the process over  and over until the stain is gone. Lacquered hair spray doesn’t work on all carpet fibers, so if your carpet is made from materials other than polyester, then you can use equal parts of cornstarch and milk to remove those stubborn ink stains.

6. Removing Milk Stains

Combine 1 tablespoon of dish soap with 2 cups of lukewarm water. Moisten a clean light colored cloth or sponge with the dish soap/water and blot the stain. Repeat the process over and over until all of the stains is removed. Rinse the area with clear water and  blot it dry. Then sprinkle baking soda on the spot and allow it to dry  then vacuum up the dried baking soda.

7. Removing Nail Polish Stain
