How to Deal With Dried Coffee Stains on a Carpet

The unsightly and sometimes sticky stains that spilled coffee can leave on a carpet can be quite difficult to remove if left to dry. That’s why, coffee stains are best to be treated  as soon as they occur but as you probably know it is not always possible to notice or to tackle the stain immediately.
Dried coffee stains may seem impossible to remove but truly it is not so at all as long as you use the right cleaning supplies and methods. It would be wrong to leave the stain sit on your carpet just because you don’t think you can handle it.  Try some of these natural cleaning methods and you will see how simple and easy is to remove dried coffee stain from a carpet without even using commercial stain removal products.
Instructions

  1. Cleaners Brixton suggest using a solution of 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, 1 tablespoon of mild dish detergent and 2 cups of warm water. Make the solution in a bowl using a spoon to stir it.
  2. Blot the cleaning solution into the dried coffee stain using a clean white cloth, then use another clean cloth to soak up the mixture and the coffee stain from the carpet. Cleaners Benhilton recommend blotting the stains from outside in, so you don’t spread it on other areas of the carpet. Keep blotting the coffee stain with the solution, refreshing the solution on the cloth as needed, until the stain is completely removed.
  3. If the stain remains, try removing it with a mixture of 1 capful of enzyme laundry detergent and 1 cup of warm water. Mix the ingredients in a bowl,  then dip a clean cloth and blot the coffee stain out of the carpet. This solution is very suitable for stains caused by coffee contained sugar and cream, as the enzymes will break down the sugar and will take care of the stickiness.
  4. Once the coffee stain has been completely removed, rinse the area with cool water. Simply pour a small amount of cool water over the area and blot dry using a clean cloth.
  5. Let the carpet dry completely.
