3 steps on how to remove coffee stains on your carpet

coffeeNothing wakes you up in the morning like that of a nice cup of coffee.

Coffee makes you feel alive, but before caffeine does its job, you’ve spilt your coffee.

Oh,  no it’s on your carpet!

You are still half-asleep and that can lead to accidents such as spilling your coffee but don’t worry! You don’t have to say goodbye to coffee just to make sure your carpet remains clean and stain free. Coffee stain on your carpet can be removed easily – especially if you know how to do it. Whether it’s a black coffee, with milk and sugar here’s how:

Blot up the coffee stain

You can use a clean cloth or a paper towel. Blot as much as coffee of the coffee and as soon as possible. Do this until there’s no more coffee transfers onto it. Remember, blot, don’t rub.

Pour a small amount of cold water

Use another clean piece of cloth and continue to blot the coffee stain, this time add some cold water. However, make sure you don’t over saturate your carpet. You use water to dilute the coffee stain, not to spread the coffee.

Decide how you treat the stain

It’s essential to use the right carpet stain removal. Remember, different carpet requires different carpet stain removal. Some carpets are made from natural fibers such as wool. This type of carpets can be sensitive to some liquid stain removers so take a mental note on this.

To try a certain stain remover product, try it on a hidden spot on your carpet like behind the door or under furniture and see how it works. If in doubt, call a professional carpet cleaner and ask for or let them remove the coffee stain for you.

The most important thing is to act fast.
