There is rarely a dull moment in a home with children, whether you have one child or a dozen kids. Accidents on the carpets are bound to happen with the fun and excitement, the tantrums, and the fits, and everything in between. A few of the common carpet stains that happen associated to kids and how to address it is what we at Carpet Dry-Tech would like to share today.
Ink Stains on Carpet
The moment your back is turned, kids can find that ink pen. The ink can be terrifying to see when they use your carpet as a notebook. Gently sponge the alcohol on the carpet stain after you treat a few cotton balls with rubbing alcohol. Let it break up for about 30 minutes. With warm water and white vinegar mixture, rinse the area. Use a dry towel to blot the moisture as dry as possible.
Blood Carpet Stains
Sometimes more so, kids are just as accident prone as adults. Treat the stain by mixing cold water with a grease-fighting dish detergent in a spray bottle and follow the steps described in the colored drinks once the little ones are bandaged.
Though it but it can potentially lighten the carpet, a cotton ball dabbed in hydrogen peroxide can also be effective.
Colored Drinks on Carpet
Brightly colored drinks are loved by kids. As it is scary to see splattered across the carpets, those purple, red, orange, and blue drinks can be devastating on carpeting. To make removing the stain more effective address the spills immediately. With paper towels, promptly blot the moisture. Never scrub or rub to avoid increasing the mess. In a misting spray bottle combine 1 cup white vinegar, 1tsp mild dish soap and 1 cup of water. Blot with a water-damp cloth and ensure it dries after you allow it to set 10 minutes.
Chocolate Stains on Carpet
The chocolate is easily smeared on the carpet’s surface with too much sugar giving the kids extra energy. The longer it sits the harder it is to remove, so never avoid addressing the chocolate fingerprints or melted bars in the carpet. Vacuum any dry particles if the chocolate is firm and you first scoop up and blot as much of the residue as possible. With one cup of warm water add with 1/4 teaspoon of mild liquid dish soap and a damp cloth to treat any residues left behind. Gently blot the chocolate from the outer edges towards the center. Be certain to rinse the area with a water damp cloth and dry well with a dry towel.
Carpet Chewing Gum Stains
It can almost break your spirits when gum gets stuck on the carpet. Dab an ice cube on the gum and let it sit there for 1 minute, or until it becomes hard. Once it is hard, you should be able to pull it off the carpet carefully. Use a dull edged tool, such as spatula, to scrape the hard gum off if necessary.
