Clean Up Bad Spills

Don’t you hate it when you spill something on your carpet that you already know will probably leave a permanent stain?

Just the other day my roommate accidently spilled red wine all over the carpet. I was so upset. For those of you who don’t know me, I am a complete neat freak. I hate dirt, dust and disorganization. So, you can imagine how I reacted when I saw my roommate spill a whole glass of red wine all over our new white carpet. All I could really do is shake my head and help bring up the stain. Even though I’m such a neat freak, I don’t really know how to clean up certain stains. You can’t just always pour hot water and rub with a rag. All stains and spot are made and clean up differently. My roommate and I learned that the hard way.

I did some research and learn how to clean up the most difficult stains. Here are a few tips on getting out the most difficult stains without ruining your clothing and carpet.

Learn How To Clean Up All Types Of  Stains and Spots.

Coffee Stains“First -Rub denatured alcohol into the stain and then rise with water. Then- Beat an egg yolk, with a white cloth rub the yolk into the stain and then wipe off. Third – Apply a solution of half vinegar and half water and then wash.”

Gum“Use an ice cube to harden the gum and then a dull knife to chip it carefully away. Cooking spray will also help remove gum from clothing and from hair.”

Red Wine“Use a dab of shaving cream (the kind in the can) to remove red wine stains from carpeting. To remove a wine stain from clothing, soak the fabric in boiling milk.”

Juice “Red or purple juice can be removed from carpeting by sprinkling salt on the stain as soon as possible. The salt will absorb the liquid forming a paste that can be easily scraped up.”
