How To Remove Carpet Stains With Vinegar

Carpet stains are so obvious in our homes. It does not matter if you have pets or not, children and even adults can be the cause of some stubborn stains in your home. Before we look at how to remove carpet stains with vinegar, it is worth mentioning at this time that you should try to clean any spill on your carpet before it dries up to become a stain...that’s common knowledge, isn’t it?

Sometimes we may not be in a position to act before the spill becomes a stain. We are therefore forced to look for the best solution that will eradicate the stain and it is at times not easy getting it. The good news is that white distilled vinegar can be effectively used in this. Follow the following simple steps.

How to remove carpet stains with vinegar: The procedure

Get yourself a clean spray bottle and five or more clean paper towels, which should be folded to form square stacks. Make a mixture of the white distilled vinegar and cold water. Anything between one part of vinegar for two parts of water and one part of vinegar for one part of water will work well. I suggest making a mixture with equal parts of water and vinegar. Pour this mixture into the spray bottle, seal it and make sure that it is well shaken.

Before cleaning the entire carpet, you need to be sure that the mixture will not discolour it. So take time to spray the mixture on an inconspicuous part of your carpet, blot dry it and assess the results (unfortunately thats the only practical way). If you are satisfied, you can then carry on to clean the carpeted area that has got stains. 

Focusing on the stained area, spray the vinegar mixture generously and give it time to soak into the carpet. Use a folded stack of the paper towels to blot-dry the sprayed area. This should suck up the staining contents into the paper towels. Repeat this procedure until the stain is completely removed. Allow the wet area to dry without interference and the smell of vinegar should disappear in a few hours. 

The mixture of vinegar and water can also be used as a cleaning agent that can be used in a steam carpet cleaning machine. The use of vinegar for cleaning carpets produces good results but is not guaranteed to give you satisfactory results and there are also a few risks involved including discolouration and over saturation of the carpet with the solution, which may damage it.

Since most of the stains are caused by young children, we suggest that you consider buying carpets made for children. Apart from the fact that these carpets are not easily stained, they are very attractive and comfortable for kids.
