While we are all prone to spilling our coffee, it becomes an annoyance when it gets spilled on your carpet. Spilling a fresh cup of coffee on your carpet can be a cause for alarm – but it doesn’t have to be.
Whether it’s a small dribble or a full-blown coffee catastrophe, I’m sharing the best ways to remove coffee stains from your carpet so you can say goodbye to those unsightly brown marks for good.
Method 1 - Vinegar and Dish Soap - The vinegar solution will cut through some of the most stubborn stains and dirt. Combine vinegar and dish soap in a cup of water. Blot the stain with the damp cloth and mixture until it fades.
Method 2 - Laundry Detergent and Water - enzyme-based Liquid detergent is ideal if you spill coffee comprised of creamer and sugar. Use a clean white cloth and blot the stain with the solution
Method 3 - Hydrogen Peroxide + Dish Soap - Similar to the vinegar method, you will apply a half cup of hydrogen peroxide and a tablespoon of dish soap mixed in a cup. Proceed to delicately dab the mixture onto the coffee stain.
Method 4 - Commercial Stain Remover - Commercial coffee stain removers like Whip it Cleaner, Folex Carpet Spot Remover, Blue Magic 900 Carpet Stain & Spot Lifter are excellent for cleaning stains.
