Quick Tip of the Week
Posted Dec 10, 2005
Carpets have a tough life and if your'e planning those festive celebrations your carpet is wincing already! Don't worry, you don't need to be a party pooper and insist on everyone taking their shoes off-just learn how to deal with the most common tricky stains. We will be featuring 3 each week from now until Crimbo so be prepared!!
1. Beer. Soak with cold water then dab with one part white vinegar to four parts water.
2. Candle Wax. Scrape off as much as possible, cover with blotting or brown paper and apply the point of a warm -not hot-iron, moving the paper about as you go.
3. Ice Cream. Wipe with paper towels. Let the stain dry then treat with dry cleaning solvent.
FOLLOW special instructions from carpets makers and a good rule is if in doubt-dont! It's handy to keep off-cuts to test but also an offcut rubbed into a stained area while damp can also restore colour!
