Where most of us like our coffee all year long, many indulge more frequently during these colder winter months. Commonly reaching for the steaming, soothing and stimulating cup of a fresh brew, consuming the coffee in the morning or throughout the day, the coffee is a common beverage that is spilled on carpets. It is crucial you instantly tend to the coffee spill, no matter if you are in a rush or not. Leaving the coffee spill can create stubborn stains and develop odors. Today, we at Mr Madison Carpet Cleaning & Upholstery Specialists would like to share a solution on how to remove the coffee spill.
How to Get Coffee Stains & Odors Out of Carpet
1) Promptly treat the coffee spill. To absorb up as much coffee as possible, grab either paper towels or a clean cloth. Work your way to the center, after starting to blot the exterior of the spill first. Doing this tactic will prevent the coffee from seeping into the fibers and spreading them out further. Lightly dampen the area should the coffee spill be found dried out, and again, start on the outside working in.
2) The mixture. With 2 cups of warm water (not hot), 1 tsp of white vinegar, and 1 tsp of liquid dish soap, mix them in a squirt bottle or bucket. Without over saturating, administer the solution on the coffee, and use a dry cloth to blot out the coffee residue. Repeat the application and blotting until the coffee is removed.
3) Refrain scrubbing and rubbing methods. Do not attack the spill with rubbing and scrubbing methods while treating the coffee spot. Scrubbing and rubbing will only push the coffee deeper into the fibers and spread it out further. Use your fingers and use minimal pressure to concentrate the cleaner and work it in areas.
4) Tougher stains. Try combining baking soda and water into a paste in the event the above mixture only lightened the coffee spot. Simply add a few drops at a time to about ½ cup of baking soda until it is a paste with the consistency of toothpaste. Apply the paste onto the targeted area and leave it to soak in until the paste has completely dried. After it has dried, be sure to vacuum the area thoroughly and any remaining residues and potential odors should be removed.
A rather challenging project is removing coffee spots, especially if they had the opportunity to dry. Not only creating an unsightly stain, coffee spills, especially if cream or milk was added, can potentially develop rather pungent odors. If you continue to struggle to remove the coffee stain, you should call in the experts.
