Removing Skin Ointment Stains on the Carpet

Posted on: July 10, 2013

Skin ointment is one item which can be really useful for many people in your home. It is often used to treat many common skin rashes and irritations which can be pretty annoying. The skin ointment helps alleviate the skin condition so that your skin will be back to normal in no time.

But many people who use skin ointment accidentally get some of it on their beautiful carpet at home. This can be a very frustrating situation since skin ointment on the carpet will likely cause an ugly stain which affects the way that you carpet looks.

Removing the skin ointment stain can be very challenging if you are not used to cleaning up this kind of mess. If you want to find out how you can properly address this issue, check out the helpful advice below.

• The first thing that you have to do is to remove the skin ointment spilled on your carpet as soon as possible. Try to get a paper towel or a clean white cloth and then blot the area where it was spilled. Do this carefully since you don’t want to make things worse by spreading the ointment to other portions of the carpet.
• Next, use a combination of household items that you can find in your home to make an effective cleaning solution that will help eliminate the ugly stain that is left behind on the carpet. You can try combining a teaspoon of non-bleach laundry detergent with five cups of water. This is going to produce a very helpful solution that will get rid of the stain.
• Apply the cleaning agent that you have created on the stained area of the carpet. Allow a few moments to pass first so that the solution will work on breaking down the ointment stain. Afterwards, use a clean white cloth to blot the area repeatedly.
• Continue the previous step until all of the stain is gone. You are not likely going to get rid of the entire stain on the first try so just keep at it until all of the stain is gone.
• For the last step, pour a glass of water on the area where the ointment stain was located. Then, dry everything using clean towels or rags to complete the task.

Skin ointment stains can be really annoying to have but with the steps above you will surely get your carpet looking clean and spotless once again without any hassles.

“Clean Choice has cleaned the carpets in two of my houses and I have been amazed at how great they look. The carpets, both over 10 years old, look brand new. I was sure I was going to have to replace them but decided to try and have them cleaned first and I am so glad I did. Keith is extremely passionate about his job and very dedicated to providing the best service possible. I have already referred them to several of my friends and will continue to do so in the future.”
