How to Remove Stains from Carpet: Liquids

There are thousands of people who will tell you a thousand different ways of removing carpet stains.

You can go through Pinterest trying to find the “super secret” stain removal formula so that you never have to worry when you spill that morning cup of coffee, or your spouse drops red wine on the carpet.

You will probably make yourself blue in the face (and have a lot less green in your wallet) trying to find that magic bullet.

The truth is elementary. A dry cloth is your best friend for removing liquid stains in the carpet. Stains like red wine, coffee, and juice can all be reduced to nothing with just a cloth, or at least acceptable faded spots that carpet and duct cleaning orange county can remove at your next scheduled cleaning. 

The other secret is getting to the stain quickly so that you can soak it up before the stain sets in!

Using a Cloth to Get Out Carpet Stains

So many people think that a stain must require some chemical or detergent that we often overdo it when we go to clean up liquid stains. 

In truth, you need to get to the stain quickly and have a few dry white cloths on hand.

First, identify where the stain is, depending on the type of stain (like a large splash) the stain may be more widespread then what you initially notice. Quickly take a look around the stain to see how far it has spread.

Second, quickly get a dry towel. Fold it in half and apply some pressure to the liquid stain, blot the stain from the outside in with the dry cloth and switch out the cloth as it becomes damp.

Third, repeat this process as many times as necessary until the area is cleaned.

This process can take some time, but it is worth it because there are quite a few downsides to using chemical cleaners and detergents to clean your carpet when you do not have to.

Sometimes the liquid stain may be particularly tough!
