How to Remove Kool Aid and Red Stains

All red stains are difficult to remove, but Kool Aid stains are sometimes even impossible for removal. The red colouring used in candies or other foods won’t just come out with water. Bright red Kool Aid stains are not really attractive.

London cleaners will give you some advice which will revive your beautiful carpet and will even help you make it look as new in no time. But first, it is recommended to try the cleaning solutions on hidden spots. That way you will be sure that it won’t damage the fibres. There are a few methods for Kool Aid removal.

Method 1 – with Ice water
Use a clean cloth to remove more from the Kool Aid. Blot, but don’t scrub. Spray with ice cold water and cover the stain with borax. On the top of the borax, put a cloth moistened with ice cold water. Gently press the cloth with a spoon. Blot with a clean cloth and repeat if it’s necessary. Rinse with water till you are sure that there are no more traces of the borax. Absorb the remaining liquid and let the area dry. When the moistened area is completely dry, vacuum.

Method 2 – with Salt
Cover the area with salt. After a few minutes, vacuum the salt and repeat the process until the stain is completely gone.

Method 3 – with warm iron
That is the method which is preferred by a lot of professionals, but it takes a lot of patience, because you have to repeat the procedure several times. So if you hurry up, this is not a very good decision. Lay a cloth damped with water on the top of the stain. Place a warm (but not hot!) iron on top of the moistened cloth. Leave it there for about 15 minutes, but don’t press it down. Rinse with clean water again and blot up with a dry cloth. Let the area dry.
