Tricks you can use to clean out a spot

If you need to clean only one spot on the carpet and you don’t want to call professionals to do it here are some tips that will help you.

Removing blood stains

To remove a blood stain, use a cleaning solution and a clean piece of cloth or sponge. The key thing you need to avoid is to rub the stain. Avoid rubbing as this will result in particles getting further into the fibres of the carpet. The smartest thing to do is to blot the spot.

Wine stain removal

Using salt is a good solution as it will absorb the wine. Simply sprinkle a thick layer of salt directly on the stain and wait for at least an hour.

Shaving cream

Some people say that the best carpet cleaning solution is shaving cream, as it can remove almost any type of stain. Apply it directly on the spot leave it there for 30 minutes then blot with a clean piece of cloth. Afterwards, spray some vinegar mixed with water on the spot and wipe it one more time, the stain should be gone.

Stuck chewing gum

Chewing gum

The worst thing that can happen to your carpet is to have a chewing gum stuck in it. Your luck is depending on whether the gum is stuck deep within the fibres of the carpet or not. There is no solution that will get the gum out of a carpet, however, there is a trick to saving it. Go to the freezer and grab a few ice cubes, hold the ice cube on the gum to cool it (should take you around 30 s to a minute) then lift the cube that is attached to the gum and cut off the strands of the carpet as close to the gum as possible. If you’ve done it right and you only cut a small piece of the carpet, nobody will even notice it.
