It’s that time of the year again. Time to show those you love how much they mean to you. With all the treats, wines and special meals that happened recently over Valentine’s Day, there are bound to be some spills involved as well. When you notice that Valentine’s Day has left behind some carpet stains, it is important that you know how to treat those areas and get rid of the stains as soon as possible. Carpet Care 2000 is here to talk about how to remove Valentine’s Day carpet stains from your carpet.
How to Clean Chocolate from Carpet
One of the easiest ways to remove chocolate from your carpet is with a simple ice cube. Because chocolate isn’t as runny as other liquids that you may spill on your carpet, it can be easier to remove too. Simply chill the chocolate with an ice cube and once it is hardened, you can use a spoon or butter knife to easily scrape the chocolate off the fibers of your carpet. If there is any of the chocolate lingering once you have scraped to remove it, you can use a small amount of carpet cleaner and cold water to remove the lingering stain.
How to Remove Dried Red Wine Stains from Carpet
Red wine can really set the mood for the perfect Valentine’s evening. When this dark liquid spills on your carpet or area rug, it can be a moment of panic. The key to getting rid of this stain, is to work quickly. You must blot the excess wine with a clean, white cloth first and foremost. Then mix two cups of cold water and one tablespoon of dish detergent to start removing the stain. You should always work from the outside in when dealing with red wine stains. If you aren’t crazy about using dish detergent, you can substitute that for white vinegar as well.
Removing Lipstick Off a Carpet
Lipstick will stain your carpet permanently if you aren’t careful and willing to work quickly. The first step in removing lipstick from carpet is with Goo-Gone. You will be able to remove the bulk of the lipstick with this product. Next, you will want to use a carpet cleaner that has a grease element in it. Because most lipstick is very oily, this is essential to removing it completely from your carpet.
How to Remove Wax from Carpet
Looking for the perfect setting for your dinner on Valentine’s Day? Candles are definitely helpful. That is, until they tip over and wax spills on your carpet. It is best to wait until the wax sets to remove it with a flat knife. If you can’t completely get rid of it, you can lay a white cloth on top of the stain and use an iron to transfer the wax to the cloth.
