The carpets that are in your home are most likely a large part of your floor covering. Carpet is usually in the main living area and most bedrooms and hallways. It is a great choice for flooring for any kind of home and the options that are available are endless. Many carpets now come in colors and patterns that can fit with any home décor. They also can come with a stain repellent that can help if there is a spill. A spill can go from a “oops” to a huge stain in a matter of minutes so you need to act fast. The very best option is to know some sure ways to remove and clean up a spill quickly.
American Hometown Services has come up with the following fun tips and ideas on how to clean your carpet:
Beer: If you have ever spilled coffee and tea on your carpet, you know that it can be a major pain to get rid of. One way that you can be ready is with a beer. You can take a small amount of beer and pour it over the stain. Then rub it gently and dry it up by blotting it. It should lift the stain but may need to be done a few times for it to work well.
Vinegar: This is no longer just a product to use when you dye your Easter eggs; it now has a much bigger purpose. Vinegar is used in many different cleaning solutions and food preparations. If you have a stain on your carpet you can use a ½ cup of white vinegar and dissolve 2 tablespoons of salt into the solutions. Take the solution and put it on the stain and let it soak in before removing it.
Shaving Cream: If you have a juice spill on your carpet it is a moment of panic on what you should use. Go grab the shaving cream and get to work. Start by adding the product onto the stain and use a damp cloth to dab away at the stain and shaving cream. You may need to try this process more than once to be sure it has worked its magic.
