You eat a pack of fries on the couch and accidentally drop some mayonnaise on your carpet. Do not panic. If you follow the following steps, your carpet will be clean again in no time.
There is already 1 golden rule for combating grease stains (butter, oil, sauces, etc.) on your carpet:be quick! This prevents the grease stain from drying and getting into the fibers of the carpet, which causes a stain. It is therefore very important to react immediately when the grease is only just on the carpet .
Step 1 Dab with pure alcohol
Take some absorbent paper and carefully remove the grease from your carpet . Then wet a cloth with a dash of pure alcohol . Gently dab over the grease stain with your cloth . Be careful:don't rub the stain with your cloth , just dab over the grease . Rubbing will only make the stain bigger. Continue to dab for 1 minute until the stain is gone.
Step 2 Lukewarm water with shampoo and vinegar
You then take a clean cloth and wet it with lukewarm water. Add a few drops of shampoo and a dash of vinegar to this. Gently dab over the grease stains again until they are gone.
Step 3 Let it dry for a while
To finish, take a dry cloth and blot away any remaining moisture. Let your carpet dry for a while and your carpet will be stain-free again.
