Your friends visited your place and everybody is drinking and happy until a glass of wine was spilled on your carpet. You were shocked because you just bought the carpet a week ago. You have your broom, dust pan, Windex, paper towels, and rubber gloves in their cleaning drawer. Are you going to use any of it if you spill a glass of wine on the carpet to clean it up? You will only need the three items listed below for you to clean the liquid spill on your carpet.
- Some clean cloth towels. You should first, immediately soak up the excess liquid with a clean towel. Put some pressure with your hands to the affected area and absorb as much liquid as possible. You must do this right after the spill occurs.
- Empty Spray Bottle and Dish Soap Mix 3 or 4 drops of dish soap in a spray bottle and fill it with hot water. For the solution to be sprayed evenly, mix it by shaking the bottle and mixing the soap with water. Next, it’s your choice whether to spray the affected area or pour some of the mixed solution directly on the carpet where the spill occurred then use a household spoon to agitate the mixture into the spilled part on the carpet. Don’t put pressure by scrubbing the stained part for it might damage the fibers of your carpet, do so just enough to be sure the soap is treating the liquid.
- Once you’re done applying the soap, soak up the remaining liquid with another clean and dry towel. You have to absorb as much of the liquid as possible and don’t leave any excess soap in the carpet for it will just attract more dirt and your carpet will be worse than before.
The steps mentioned above are important for an emergency clean up. If you are still not satisfied with the result you had received, then pour a small amount of plain water in the affected area and soak it up with a clean and dry towel. Put the towel in place then put some heavy books on top of it then leave it for a few hours. If the stain remained there then it’s the time for you to hire a professional carpet cleaning company to treat the stains.
