Posted on: June 4, 2014

ice cream with strawberry syrup

If you are going to eat some ice cream or if you want to prepare a sundae, adding some strawberry syrup is certainly something that can help make everything taste better. Adding a little or a ton of strawberry syrup on the ice cream you are eating certainly adds flavor and taste to it. No wonder many people love to use strawberry syrup on their desserts.

But while strawberry syrup can help your dessert taste better, it can sometimes affect the cleanliness of your home too if you accidentally get some of it on your carpet fibers. This is not something that you should allow to happen but if it does then you should do everything you can to get things back to normal.

Try the guide below to help you out in restoring the beauty and cleanliness of your carpet from the pesky strawberry syrup stain that you accidentally got on it.

The first step in cleaning up this kind of stain is to clean up the excess spill out of the carpet fibers. This can be done with the use of some paper towels or a clean white cloth. Blot the strawberry syrup out of the carpet and then move on to the second step in this guide.
The next step you should perform is to make a simple yet effective cleaning agent to help eliminate the strawberry syrup stain. You can do this by combining a teaspoon of non-bleach laundry detergent with four cups of warm water. As soon as you mix these two together, place the resulting solution in an empty container and then go to where the stain is located on your carpet.
Pour a few drops of the detergent-based cleaning solution that you have made on the strawberry syrup stain and then leave it there for a few minutes. Then, use a clean paper towel to repeatedly blot the stain until it is removed from the carpet fibers. This step usually takes the longest but after this your carpet will be as good as new once more.
The last step in this handy guide is intended to ensure that there will be no residue that could cause build-up on your carpet fibers over time. For this last step, get a cup of room temperature water and pour it on the spot where the strawberry syrup stain used to be. Afterwards, use a clean towel or rag to dry the spot and your carpet should be back to normal once more.
