Clean Soda Stains From Carpet
If you’re like me and you live in a house with carpet, then you know that at some point or another it’s going to get stained. Thankfully, there are many ways to remove stains from your carpet. Let’s take a look at one of the more common ones: soda stain on the carpet. Soda is acidic and will cause damage to both your carpets and floors if left untreated for too long (or even overnight). Luckily, we’ve got solutions for this! Here’s how to remove a soda stain from your carpet:
What you need:
• Paper towel
• Vacuum cleaner
• Liquid dish or laundry detergent or Carpet Stain Remover
• Optional: Carpet stain remover
Blot the Stain
As soon as the spill happened. Use paper towel to blot away as much liquid as possible from the carpet.
Blot from outside toward inside of the liquor so will not spread the liquid wider.
Avoid scrubbing and pressing, as you do not want to push the liquid deeper into the faber.
Method 1: Detergent
Mix a solution and ½ cup of water and ¼ teaspoon of laundry detergent.
Pour the mixture on the stain and blot up the area with paper towel.
The enzymes in laundry detergent is the ingredient that cleaned the stain.
Method 2: White Vinegar
Mix vinegar with water about 1:2 ratio. Grape and red colour soda are more difficult to remove. The acid in vinegar is the ingredient to remove them. Other options are lemon juice, ammonia, or hydrogen peroxide solution.
Method 3: Carpet Stain Remover
Carpet stain remover contains surfactants that increase the cleaner’s ability to spread over the carpet fibres. So the cleaner can interact more with the stain.
Vacuum the Area
After the area dried, vacuum up the dry bits of residues. This will also fluff the carpet back to normal texture.
