You rise from bed, the sun is shining through the blinds onto your skin. Venturing to the kitchen, you eagerly pour yourself a mug of hot coffee in your favorite mug. It warms up your hands, the aroma fills your lungs filling you with joy and BAM a few drops spill on your carpet. Coffee can be a stubborn stain to get out of a carpet, but we at Fresh Tech Maid are here to tell you all our secrets. As a Arlington Heights home cleaning service, we know the drill.
1. Blot, Blot, Blot!
First things first, you need to act QUICKLY! Blot the coffee stain as soon as you can with a highly absorbent cloth. This will minimize the damage that was done quickly. It is vital to begin the coffee stain removal process while the spill spot is still wet.
2. Mix it up
In order to tackle the remainder of the stain, you need to make a non toxic solution. Mix one tablespoon of liquid dish soap with one tablespoon of white vinegar and two cups of warm water- all of which can be found at Target. This solution, when paired with a cotton cloth, will help you with coffee stain removal. Keep blotting the stain with the cloth and the solution and it will make a big difference.
After blotting the stain with the solution, make sure to alternate your tools. Start to alternate by blotting the stain with your solution and a dry cloth. This contrast will help remove the stain.
4. Time for cold water..
To finish your coffee stain removal, all you need is cold water. Using a sponge, blot the stain with cold water while drying the carpet.
