How to clean carpet stains
Don’t let a stubborn stain ruin your favourite carpet, here a few tips for cleaning them away.
Solutions & Solvents
A teaspoon of neutral detergent, e.g. “Stergene” to half pint of warm water.
Add one teaspoon of white vinegar to the above detergent solution.
One tablespoon of household ammonia to one cup of warm water. Warning: Always test a small “out of the way” area of your carpet for fastness prior to tackling the stain.
Dry Cleaning Solvent
A proprietary brand of dry cleaning solvent should be used. You will also need a blunt knife and some white tissues or absorbent cloth to blot up the stain as it is released. The modern alternative is K2R, a dry spray, which is best left overnight to work on any stain before vacuuming off.
