Who doesn’t love their morning cup of coffee? A nice hot cup of coffee can be a very relaxing way to start a day or provide the perk you need in the morning, but sometimes, especially if you’re drinking it while getting ready to go to work or while tending to your children, there is a chance you might spill it on your carpet.
That’s OK. Coffee is mostly water-based and can be easy to remove if you act fast and follow some of these stain removal tips from Waukesha Carpet Cleaning Blog:
To remove the coffee stain before it dries you will want to act fast. Once you see the coffee spill, grab a clean towel, preferably white, and blot the stain. Be sure not to scrub or press too hard as it could possibly result in grinding the stain into the carpet.
Continue to blot the stain to soak up as much as possible. You can also spray some water onto the stain while you blot to try to soak up the coffee. Once you have blotted the stain thoroughly, try one of these household items to remove it from your carpet entirely:
Baking Soda: Stir together a combination of baking soda and water to make a paste. Once you have the paste, spread it directly over the coffee stain and let it sit until it has completely dried. When the paste is dry and crumbly, simply vacuum over it and it should have lifted the coffee stain from the carpet.
White Vinegar: Fill an empty spray bottle with white vinegar and water to create a natural cleaning solution. White vinegar is one of the best green cleaners available and one of our most popular stain removal tips. Spray the mixture over the stain and then blot it until the coffee stain is gone.
Club Soda: Club soda is an excellent stain solution due to the cleaning power of carbonation. The bubbles from the carbonation penetrate deep into the stain and then pull it to the surface of the carpet for easy removal. Just blot some club soda onto the coffee stain and then blot it with a dry towel to remove it.
Salt: You can find salt in pretty much every home in America. Salt is excellent at absorbing moisture. Pour salt over the stain and then vacuum the salt and the stain particles from your floor.
