What to Do If You Spilled Iced Coffee on the Rug


Coffee is one of the most loved drinks by people the world over. There are a thousand ways to enjoy coffee and drinking it iced is just way to do so. Iced coffee is a great option if you want to get your caffeine fix without having to sip a hot beverage.

Iced coffee can come in many different flavors and there is surely something for everyone to enjoy. What is not enjoyable though is being in a predicament of accidentally spilling the iced coffee you are drinking all over your favorite rug at home.

Iced coffee spills can really devastate a rug especially if it is light-colored. If you have this problem in your home then you are probably wondering what you can do to solve this problem.

Cleaning up this type of spill on the rug can be tough but with the right steps you can be on your way to restoring the beauty of your rug in no time. Try out the guide below to find out how to clean up the iced coffee spill on your rug.

The first thing that you have to do is to remove the iced coffee spilled on your rug. Do this by using a sponge or some paper towels to absorb the liquid so that you can extract it. Be careful not to spread the spill and only blot the area to do so.

After you have removed the excess liquid out of the rug fibers, the next step is to make a cleaning agent that is going to help you in removing the ugly stain that the spill has caused. Combining a teaspoon of non-bleach laundry detergent with two cups of warm water is going to help produce a very potent cleaning agent you could use on the stain. Take this solution with you to the affected area of your rug and then proceed to the next step in the guide.

Pour several drops of the detergent-based cleaning solution on the soiled parts of your rug and then leave it there for a few minutes. Then, get a clean white cloth and use it to slowly and carefully blot the area continuously. This is going to cause the iced coffee stain to get lifted out of the rug fibers and transfer onto the surface of the cloth. Do this again and again until the stain is gone.

The final step in this guide is rinsing the area where the iced coffee was spilled using a cup of water to remove the residue that could get left behind. After doing so, use a clean rag to dry it off to finish the job.
