How to Get Juice Stains Out of a Carpet

Spilled juice can leave colourful stain on your carpet because of the natural and added colours contained in it. Except colourful, juice stains are also sticky because of the sugars found in juice, making the affected area of the carpet a magnet for dirt if the stain isn’t removed completely. Quick action is required in order to prevent the stain from seeping deep into the fibers and eventually becoming a permanent blemish on your carpet.
You may use commercial carpet cleaners to deal with juice stains, but you may also use your own homemade solution and save some money. Making this carpet cleaning solution is not hard and certainly will help you to get rid of juice stains effectively, just follow the steps below provided by cleaners Brixton Hill.

  1. Press paper towels onto the stained area to absorb the spilled juice. Do not rub to avoid spreading of the stain. Get new paper towels if the previous ones get soaked and continue absorbing the moisture from the carpet until no more juice transfers to the paper towels.
  2. Mix 2 cups of warm water and 1 tablespoon of dish detergent to create the so called soapy water solution. Dampen a clean cloth with the solution and wring out the excess soapy water. Blot the juice stain, working form outside of the stain towards the centre.
  3. Combine 1 tablespoon of ammonia and 2 cups of warm water.  Use the solution to remove the rest of the juice stain by blotting at the affected area with a clean cloth moistened in the diluted ammonia. Blot dry with a dry cloth.
  4. If there is any remaining juice stain on the carpet, apply a few drops of hydrogen peroxide to a damp cloth and sponge the juice stain until it is gone.
  5. Cover the wet area of the carpet with a clean towel and step on it to absorb as much moisture as you can. Repeat this step until the carpet is almost dry, then leave it to air dry completely before walking on it.

Cleaners Blackheath Park suggest using table salt  over fresh juice to absorb the liquid.
