How to Get Those Stubborn Carpet Stains Out for GOOD!
(1) Empty Spray Bottle
(1) Iron (Set on the highest setting)
(1) Bottle Vinegar
Mix the HOT water and vinegar (equal parts) into the spray bottle
If your house is anything like mine, carpet stains happen all the time. They are especially frequent in my house because of my very light carpet. Combined with a 3 year old and a 1 year old, it’s a constant battle. I’ve been searching for the perfect carpet spot cleaner for years and I haven’t found anything that really works. I have given up on store bought cleaners because they just don’t cut it!
Recently my 3 year old spilled a very full cup of red Kool-Aid. Yup, right in my living room on the very light carpet. This has to be every parents nightmare because as we all know, Kool-Aid never comes out! It was there for almost two months until I found something that worked, and I want ALL parent’s/care givers to see this! Yes, it works!
As seen in the picture above, I used an empty spray bottle with a mixture of very hot water and vinegar (equal parts). I sprayed the stain so it was soaking wet. After that, I took a white towel (make sure it’s white, you don’t want anymore color to transfer into your carpet!) and laid on top of the stain. Turn your iron on to the highest setting and then on top of your white and rub back and forth. Like magic, you will see your nasty stain come right UP into the towel!
I continued the process of spraying and ironing on the white towel until it was completely gone! You may need more than one white towel, depending on how large your stain is! I have now used this on other stains and it always works!
