Have you ever spilled a cup of coffee or a glass of wine on light colored carpet and struggled to get the stain out? Has your dog ever tracked mud in the house after a rainy day? Lucky for you, there’s no need to stress any longer. Here are a few quick tips & tricks for getting tough stains out of carpet using only a couple low-cost common household products. All recommended supplies can be found at your local grocery store.

COFFEE


Supplies

White Vinegar

Hydrogen Peroxide

Baking Soda


When it comes to spilled coffee on the carpet, try soaking up the liquid with a dry rag and then using white vinegar to remove the stain. Another option to try on more abrasive stains is to create a paste made out of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. If the stain is old or deep, a scrub brush may be needed.


WINE


Supplies

Dish Soap with a Grease-Fighting Agent such as Dawn

Hydrogen Peroxide

White Vinegar

Carbonated Soda Water

Rubbing Alcohol


There’s no need to panic when it comes to wine stains. For red wine accidents, try dabbing a combination of equal parts dish soap, hydrogen peroxide, and white vinegar with a rag or sponge. Then, use a paper towel to soak up the remaining liquid. Other tricks are to use carbonated soda water and white vinegar or rubbing alcohol to remove wine spills.


MUD


Supplies

Dish Soap with a Grease-Fighting Agent such as Dawn

Hydrogen Peroxide


Finding mud tracks on the carpet after a day of rain may seem daunting. Fortunately, a mixture of dish soap containing a grease-fighting agent such as DAWN and hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle can do just the trick. Then, use a scrub brush or rag to completely remove the mud stains from the carpet.


GREASE


Supplies

Dish Soap with a Grease-Fighting Agent such as Dawn

Baking Soda

Stain Remover


Removing grease from the carpet can oftentimes be difficult. Luckily, there’s no need to worry. Grease stains don’t stand a chance when using a solution made out of dish soap containing a grease-fighting agent and baking soda. Use a scrub brush to completely remove the stain. On extra tough grease stains, try using your favorite brand of stain remover in conjunction with the dish soap and baking soda mixture.
