- Blot them up
We usually end up robbing the stains while actually, we should be blotting them. Use a clean , cloth sponge or a paper towel for the purpose. Blotting will soak up the particles while rubbing will enable the particles to settle deep down and cause breakdown of fibers as a result. Soaking inward is the trick.
- Use the fizz
Use a cloth dipped in soda to blot the area. If that doesn’t give you the required results, you can use a mixture of vinegar and water. Put it in a spray bottle and spray the area with it. After 10-15 minutes, clean the area with a sponge. The process might call for repetition. Rinse with warm water once the stain is eliminated. The last step is to dry the area by laying white paper towels all over the area and putting something heavy on them to keep them in place.
- Shaving cream for your carpet
You might be surprised but shaving cream is just as effective in cleaning the stains as it is in making your face hair free. Put a bit of shaving cream on the stained spot and leave it for half an hour. Blot the area and spray it with the water-vinegar mix. Wipe the solution away with a dry cloth. There you are done!
