1. The first step in cleaning up the perfume spill on your carpet is by absorbing as much of the spilled perfume as possible. This can be done using a sponge or a clean white cloth and blotting the spilled area. Continue blotting the spill until all of the excess liquid is removed.

2. Next, you need to make a cleaning solution for the perfume stain that is left behind. You can do this by combining one part of clear ammonia and four parts of warm water. The ammonia is great in removing many kinds of carpet stains and it can also help in neutralizing the unpleasant odor caused by the perfume spills. Once you have the cleaning solution ready, apply some of it onto the stain and proceed to the next step.

3. After applying the ammonia-based cleaning solution, you must now get another piece of clean white cloth and blot the area repeatedly. Blotting will help in removing the stain and transfer it onto the cloth’s surface. Just continue blotting until you have removed all of the stain. It may take several tries but pretty soon all of the stain will be gone.

4. Once you have removed the perfume stain as well as the odor on the carpet, you still need to rinse the area where the spill occurred. This is because residue may get left behind which could harm the carpet over time. After rinsing the carpet, dry it completely using a clean rag to finish off the job.
