1. Immediate Action
As soon as something has been spilled, it is important to act quickly. The longer a stain remains, the more difficult it can be to remove. Gently blot away excess moisture with a clean cloth before it penetrates the fibers.
2. Identify the Type of Stain
Not all stains are equal, and they require different treatments. Identify the type of stain before you start cleaning . Is it a watery liquid, oily substance or sticky substance? Adjust your approach based on the nature of the stain.
3. Use the Right Cleaning Agents
Depending on the type of stain, you can try different cleaning agents. For general stains on carpets and furniture, try a mixture of mild dish soap and water. For stubborn stains, specific stain removers or even homemade solutions such as a mixture of vinegar and water can be effective.
4. Test in Inconspicuous Places
Before applying any cleaner to the stain, test it on an inconspicuous area to ensure it will not damage the color or material.
5. Pat, Don't Rub
Rubbing can push the stain further into the fibers and cause damage . Gently dab with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb excess moisture.
6. Work from the Outside to the Inside
If the stain is large, work from the outside in to prevent the stain from spreading. This helps to minimize damage and increase the chances of the stain being completely removed.
