Cleaning Stains From White Carpets
Back in April, I was working one morning and my son was playing so quietly beside me.
I should have known something was wrong, that is when I turned to see this:
Yep, that is maple syrup he is drinking out of the jug and that lovely maple syrup stain has been on my carpet forever! I have tried to scrub it out with various carpet cleaning chemicals, but it just has stayed there.
We had a little floor volcano that was fun to watch. (My son loved watching it.)
And then I scrubbed it in with a brush. (I alternated with my son, who finds scrubbing stains out of carpet super fun.)
After letting it dry, vacuum up the remaining baking soda. And the stain is MAGICALLY gone!!
The only bad part is now I have a white spot on the carpet where I cleaned it! It just shows you how bad these carpets need to be professionally cleaned. I am sure we will track on it enough to blend in with the rest soon enough! Also, not sure if this will work on colored carpet, so I am just giving you a warning to maybe stick with white carpet only.
