To those who enjoy drinking coffee, you'd know how important they are to start your day and get you going. It has become a routine for those like myself who cannot live without a cup of coffee in the morning.
Having said that, there comes the occasion where we humans will commit humanely mistakes, and that includes spilling your cup of coffee onto the carpet. And that is ok because it is understandable how we can be in a hurry for work or whatever the case may be.
Lucky for you though, we have a recipe for you to get rid of the coffee stains, completely. Although spilled coffee on the carpet may appear terribly stained because of its color, do not panic, as its coffee is mostly water and therefore easily cleaned.
Cleaning Methods for Coffee Spills
The following methods work for both the carpet and rug.
So the first thing you want to do is grab a towel or any type of cloth and press it onto the stained area.
You want to blot the towel against the stained area at least a couple times to extract as much liquid out of the carpet. Make sure to do it as soon as possible as the coffee extracts are still loose within the fibers of the carpet. You can spray some water while blotting the carpet as it could help remove the coffee extracts.
When you feel like the carpet is dried up to the point where no more liquid is coming out of it, then it is time to move on to the next step to eliminate the coffee stain completely.
There are a couple of cleaning methods that are commonly found within a typical household.
The first one is the Baking Soda Method
Many of us know of baking sodas' versatility in use for many different things, and it certainly includes the use of cleaning carpet stains.
Simply mix the baking soda and water together and use the paste on the stained area. Let the paste sit there until it fully dissolves into the stained area and dries up. After it dries up, you'll notice that it starts to look a little crumbly. In that state, just grab a vacuum and use it on that area. It should suck all the stain out of there and leave your carpet looking at how it was before the spill.
The second method you could is that with white vinegar
Simply find an empty spray bottle and fill it with water and white vinegar equal parts. Use this natural Eco-friendly cleaning solution to effectively get rid of that stain like it never was there in the first place.
Simply spray that solution onto the stained area and blot it with a towel or a terrycloth until it is dried. You may have to repeat the process until it is fully gone.
Next, we have the Club Soda Method
Many people would just frown upon that idea thinking we're crazy, but let me assure you that we are not crazy and we have tried this method plenty of times with success. It works because of its carbonation effect, which makes it an excellent cleaning solution for removing stains as it simply breaks the molecules apart from the fibers. All you have to do is pour some club soda onto a terrycloth towel and blot it against the stained area until dry. That's it! It should do the trick.
Lastly, we have the Salt method
Something every household in Bolton contains is salt, and guess what? It's a powerful cleaning solution! It can work on coffee stains too! Simply pour some salt onto the stained area and vacuum it up. It should come off. However, if you happen to be dealing with an old coffee stain, then it probably won't come right off very easily and may have to call up a professional to do the trick.
