There is nothing better than the warm soothing and stimulating cup of a fresh brew most mornings, especially during the colder months for passionate coffee drinkers. The more drink this tasty beverage, the more likely it is to be spilled on your carpets. Should you have a clumsy moment, you need to stop doing anything else and treat the spill as quickly as possible. Allowing the coffee to soak into the carpets for any length of time will only cause the stain to set and lead to developing odors. With this in mind, we at Tough Carpet Cleaning would like to provide a solution for removing coffee from the carpets.
How to Get Coffee Spills, Stains & Smells Out of Carpet
1) Instantly treat the coffee spill. Blot the excess coffee using either a clean cloth or a paper towel. To help better contain the spill and prevent it from spreading outwardly, be sure to start blotting on the exterior and work your way towards the center. Should you discover an old, dried coffee stain on the carpets, pretreat the area with warm water, and blot as you would a fresh spill.
2) Prepare the cleaning solution. When mixing the ingredients, only use warm water, never hot. In a container or squirt bottle, mix 1 tsp of white vinegar, 1 tsp of liquid dish soap, and 2 cups warm water. Either spray the mixture to the affected area or sponge it on. Begin blotting the area with a dry cloth, repeating the application and blotting until the spot has dissipated.
3) Blot carpet only. When you tend to the coffee spill, it is vital you do not aggressively attack the spot with rubbing and scrubbing tactics. This will only result in a bigger mess as the coffee will spread out and get pushed deeper into the fibers. In the event you need to work a little more solution into a more concentrated area, simply use your fingers and use minimal pressure to work in the mixture.
4) Treat persisting coffee residue. If the above method only results in the coffee spot getting lighter, but not vanishing, create a paste by adding a few drops at a time to about a ½ cup of baking soda until the paste is of toothpaste consistency. Apply the paste on the areas and leave it to dry. Only after it is completely dry, be sure vacuum it up thoroughly, taking the remnants of the stain and any possible odors with it.
