Get off the carpet now! How awesome it would be if you didn’t have to say any such thing anymore. But my experience tells me that this is far from reality and never is there a day when you haven’t dreaded the worst happening to your beloved carpets. This is true for almost every household in NYC that owns an expensive oriental or Asian carpet and cherishes it the way you do.
Wines! Carpets! Stains!
Yes, we all are fond of wines. We are in love with them. But we also love our carpets, don’t we? Many residents in New York City are simply terrified about both their objects of affection finding out about each other. I am talking about wine stains. Yes, those red and crimson spots that make your precious carpets look straight out of a Halloween party for kids dressed as zombies.
Cleaning Wine Stains from Your Expensive Carpets
If you happen to spill some of that divine liquid on that precious carpet of yours, the first thing that you should do is don’t even wait for a second! Yes, grab a clean cloth or some paper towels and blot out as much liquid as you can immediately. This is because the quicker you dab and wipe up all the spilled liquid, the lesser the chance of it getting soaked down into the fibers of the carpet. This would prevent the carpet from getting stained permanently. Yes, your carpets can get stained permanently, so act fast!
The next step is to take 2 parts water and mix it with 1 part vinegar. Now stir the solution thoroughly and transfer it into a clean spray bottle. Spurt the stained area and let it sit for a minutes. Now dab the liquid up using a clean white cloth or some paper towels. Continue this process until you notice the spots lighten up.
Now it is time to clean it good. So take a cup of warm water and mix in it a little unscented dish wash detergent. Stir and dribble it on the affected area. Now use a sponge to gently work the solution into the carpet. Now it is time to rinse the carpet with warm clean water. Dab all the excess liquid with clean paper towels and let it dry.
