Coffee lovers should love this one! We have the skinny on how to deal with coffee stains on your carpet. It doesn’t matter how you take your coffee; with cream or sugar or black, just act fast to avoid having to work harder later. Enjoy!
- Use clean, white towels (paper or cloth) to absorb as much of the coffee as possible. Never rub a stain, just blot.
- Treat the spot with soapy water. You can either use a mild dish soap or a carpet shampoo for this. Don’t go overboard on the soap, use about a quarter teaspoon per two cup of warm water. To apply you can either pour the mixture onto the stain directly or use a clean colorfast sponge to dab at the stain. Again, no rubbing!
- Time to rinse, you’ll want to rinse the area with warm water to remove all traces of the soap. You can again pour or dab with a sponge.
- It’s important to dry the area really well. Use clean white towels for best results, as a towel gets too damp grab a dry one and continue; pressing down firmly into the carpet to remove all remaining moisture.
