Spot Removal Guide

Basic Cleaning Steps For All Food and Beverage Spills

 1   Scoop up as much of the spill as possible, with a towel or a spoon.
 
 2   Blot the spot, don't rub or scrub. Gently press clean cloths into the stained area to remove moisture. Scrubbing can damage the fiber and set the stain into the carpet.
 
 3   Apply warm, not hot, water to the stained area and blot until the stain stops transferring to the cloth.
 
 4   If you can still see the stain, make a Detergent Solution by adding 1/4 teaspoon dishwashing liquid to one cup warm water. Don't use too much soap, because it's difficult to rinse out of the carpet.
 
 5   Apply the detergent solution, let sit five minutes, then rinse with clear warm water. Repeat until all the detergent is removed.
 
 6   Place layers of white paper towels on the spill to absorb the liquid. Weight down the towels with a non-staining glass or ceramic object. You can let them sit overnight.
 
 7   When the carpet is dry, vacuum to restore the texture.
 
 8   If you can see the stain after all this, repeat steps 3 through 7. It means the stain penetrated deep into the pile and has wicked up to the surface.
