Did you know that you can remove almost any kind of stain from your carpet by using an easy home cleaning remedy including vinegar and an iron? Well, if you are not familiar with this easy cleaning solution, here are the short instructions for cleaning up some tough stains, including candle wax, wine and fruit juice:
First of all, you need to vacuum the soiled area to remove as much dirt as possible before treating it with this wonderful carpet cleaning solution.
Then, find a power outlet closest to the stained area, plug in your iron, set it to the highest steam setting it has and let it heat up to the maximum.
Meanwhile, prepare a quick and easy mix of white distilled vinegar and water in a 1:3 proportion. Mix the solution in a spray bottle for easy application.
Then, find a clean cotton rag or towel, dip it lukewarm water and wring it out so that it is damp. It must be a cloth which can cover the entire stain.
Use the spray bottle to spray the vinegar and water solution thoroughly over the stain. Then, place the damp clean rag on top of it. Make sure you cover the entire stain.
Use the hot iron to steam clean the stain by ironing the rug lightly until the stain is removed. Another clever tip for removing carpet stains with an iron is to soak a clean rag in warm water with a few drops of dishwashing detergent in it. Wring the towel until it is damp and cover the stained area. Then use the iron which has to be set to a low-temperature steam setting to gently iron the damp rug until it dries, you can leave it on top of the rug until it appears to be dry. After that hopefully, the stain will be transferred to the rug and out of your carpet once you are done.
An iron is a perfect tool for efficiently removing candle wax stains from your rug too. Firstly, use a spoon to gently remove as much of the hardened candle wax from the carpet. Do it carefully, so that you don’t damage the fibres.
After you are done, cover the stained area with paper towels and gently iron at a low temperature setting over them until the wax is transferred to the paper towels instead of your carpet. If the stained area still appears greasy after the procedure, sprinkle it with baking powder. It will absorb the grease after sitting on the stained spot for a while. Then all you need to do is to vacuum the baking soda off your rug, and there will be no sign of the candle wax stain. You can also use an iron set to a high temperature to treat any furniture imprints on your rug.
Overall, it turns out that you can remove almost any kind of stain, and clean your entire carpet by using simple and safe home products, such as vinegar, dishwashing detergent or liquid soap, baking soda and an iron. All you need to do is to the treat it with care so that you don’t damage the carpet or burn it. If you can't deal with home cleaning solutions, you can always call professional cleaners and let them do the job for you.
