beer stain

 

Cheers for beer! But what do you do when some of that tasty beverage ends up on your carpet? Don’t let a beer stain end your party follow these tips and bust that spot fast!

Beer contains sugar and that means if left untreated a beer stain will attract dirt and dust; you’ll end up with a much uglier stain if you don’t treat this one promptly.

  1. Soak up any excess beer with paper towels or dry cloths.
  2. Mix a fourth of a teaspoon of dish soap into 2 cups of warm water, agitate the mixture until it’s totally combined. Apply the mixture to the affected area, work from the outside towards the center.
  3.  Let that mixture sit on the spot for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing with clean water and drying the area thoroughly with clean cloths.
  4. If the spot is gone you are done!
  5. If not repeat the same steps as above but this time try a tablespoon of white vinegar in 2 cups of warm water. Apply, wait 5 minutes, rinse then dry.
