Stains can be a problem for all households and many of them can be very difficult to remove. With this short handy guide, grass and mud stains will be a thing of the past.
· If mud has been treaded into the carpet leave it to dry, as dry mud is a lot easier to remove. Do not be tempted to rub the stain as it can spread further.
· Once the mud is dry, vacuum the affected area and remove any remaining residue with a blunt edged knife.
· Combine half a teaspoon of mild detergent with a cup of cold water and apply to the affected area, blot gently with a white towel, until the stain transfers.
· If any of the stain remains continue to blot.
· First vacuum the carpet to remove any loose particles of grass.
· Use a wet white cloth and blot the affected area.
· Mix a teaspoon of mild detergent with a cup of cold water and apply to the affected area, leave for a minute or so.
· Blot area with a white towel until the stain disappears.
Things to remember:
· Before you attempt to remove any stain on your carpet, always test the cleaning solution on a hidden area for colourfastness.
· Never rub stains, always blot gently as this prevents the carpet fibres from matting.
