If you need some help, check out the very informative post below to guide you in dealing with 3 of the most common stains that you can have on your carpet.

Coffee Stains

Coffee stains are really common inside the home. It is a drink that is enjoyed by many people to start out their day. Sadly, it is also something that commonly gets spilled on the carpet. Dealing with this particular problem is not easy as coffee stains can be very stubborn but you can try to clean it with some non-bleach laundry detergent which has been known to be effective for this particular kind of stain. Just mix one teaspoon of non-bleach laundry detergent with three cups of warm water to make a potent cleaning agent. Then, apply this solution onto the coffee stain and then blot it repeatedly with a paper towel until the stain is gone.

Kool-Aid Stains

Kids love Kool-Aid because it is tasty and delicious. Unfortunately, they often play around while drinking it which is why it is a very common stain for homeowners to find on their carpet. Kool-Aid juices come in a variety of colors which means that the stains on your carpet could be very colorful as well. Luckily, you can get rid of the stain simply by utilizing a homemade cleaning solution composed of one part white vinegar and four parts warm water. Apply the homemade cleaning agent onto the stain and then let it set for three minutes. Afterwards, use a clean white cloth to blot the Kool-Aid stain repeatedly until it is completely removed.

Pet Stains

Another very common carpet stain is the one created by your lovable pets inside the house. Sometimes, pets and carpets just don’t make a good combination as the former will always find ways to make the latter dirty and filthy. Pet urine and feces are the most common culprits to making the carpet dirty and cleaning it up is really essential. To get rid of pet stains, try to remove the urine or feces out of the carpet immediately to prevent making the problem worse. Then, use a cleaning solution made by mixing one teaspoon of clear ammonia with one cup of warm water. This is going to help remove the pet stain as well as neutralize unwanted odor that could get left behind. Blot the pet stain continuously until all of it is eliminated.
