Carpet stains always occur at holiday gatherings. To successfully remove them, follow these steps:
1. ACT FAST
The more time a stain stays on the carpet, the more it chemically reacts with it and it will be harder to remove.
2. DON'T RUB
Rubbing will permanently break down the carpet fibers. Always blot by starting at the outside edge of the stain and work toward the center.
3. FIND THE RIGHT SOLUTION
Using the wrong stain remover can cause a lot more damage. For best solutions always check trusted resources such as Good Housekeeping, Martha Stewart, Consumer Reports, Coit carpet cleaning. No matter what solution you decide to use, always test it in a not-so-visible area first (in the corner behind dresser or in the closet, if carpeted).
