How to Remove Red Carpet Stains

You might get cold chills running down your spine at the sight of a freshly occurred red stain on your carpet. It can be a real challenge to remove red dyes from a carpet, especially when the carpet fibers are twisted and dense. Fortunately, there are a few very efficient methods that can help you to deal with the red dye depending on the stain-causing material. Whether the stain is caused by ink, nail polish or blood  here are some simple solutions to get rid of the nasty red carpet stain.
All Stains

  1. Remove any solid stain-causing material before treating the stain as recommended by carpet cleaning Acton.
  2. Soak up as much liquid as possible with paper towels.
  3. Saturate a cloth with warm water and squeeze out the excess moisture. Add a few drops of dish-washing liquid to the cloth and press it down to the stained area with a heavy object for around 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the heavy object and run over the cloth several times with an iron set to low temperature.
  5. Rinse with plain water and blot dry.


  1. Mix ammonia and cold water in a spray bottle, then spray the blood stain with the solution.
  2. Let the mixture sit on the carpet for at least an hour, then blot it up with a clean white cloth. Re-apply the ammonia solution if necessary but be careful not to oversaturate the carpet as carpet cleaning Acton warns.
  3. Rinse out the solution with cold water then blot dry.

Nail Polish

  1. Spray a solution of 1 tablespoon of ammonia and ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide to the affected area using a spray bottle.
  2. Rinse the carpet in the next morning and pat dry.


  1. Blot the stained area using a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol, or spray a generous amount of hairspray onto the ink stain.
  2. Dip a soft toothbrush into a solution of dish-washing liquid and warm water and then scrub the in stain with it. Remove the lifted ink by blotting with a white cloth while working.
  3. Rinse with cool water and blot dry.
