How Do You Get Ranch Stain Out of Carpet?
1) From off the carpet, remove as much of the bulk as you can. You will only spread it out further and deeper when you scrub or rub as it can smash into your carpet. For easy disposal, carefully use your spoon or butter knife to scoop up the chunks and wipe it on the paper towels.
2) According to the label’s directions, apply the carpet stain remover. Combine a tsp non-bleach laundry detergent with a quart of warm water if you prefer the cleaning solution and apply to the stain without over saturation. To test to ensure the carpet will not be compromised, perform a patch test in an inconspicuous area before actually treating the stain.
3) Allow the DIY solution to breakdown for at least 5 minutes to the ranch dressing residue area on the carpet. To ensure the residues are easily removed and the spot is successful, the solution should be permitted to set long enough breakdown the substance.
4) Blot the residues away from the carpet, with a clean damp, white cloth. For better containment and removal, begin patting the spot on the outer edges and work towards the center. During your technique, continue this process without incorporating any rubbing or scrubbing.
5) To remove the excess moisture after the stain is removed, use dry paper towels. Afterwards, apply pure water on top of the area to rinse, and dry white towel to remove all the water and get the area as dry as possible to ensure all the cleaner’s residues are also removed from carpet’s surface.
