How To Remove Beer Stains and Spills From Carpet: Victoria Carpet Care


Step 1

·               For large beer stains, work from the outside of stain to the center to prevent spreading.

·               Blot up beer spills with a white towel or paper towel.

·               Mix a solution of 1/4 teaspoon of clear hand dishwashing detergent with 1 cup of water. Stir gently.

·               Apply detergent solution directly to a white cloth. Dampen the carpet fibers in the stained area with the cloth. Avoid saturating the carpet.

·               Wipe gently. Turn cloth frequently. Never rub, scrub or use a brush. This may damage carpet fibers.

·               If necessary, use your fingertips to work the solution to the base of the stain.

·               Wet the stained carpet fibers with clear, lukewarm water to rinse.

·               Cover the spot with an absorbent white towel or paper towel and apply pressure to blot.

·               Repeat the rinsing and blotting procedures until you are sure all traces of the detergent have been removed.

·               If the beer stain is gone, place an absorbent white towel or paper towel over the area cleaned, and weigh towels down with a heavy, colorfast object, such as a weighted plastic wastebasket.

·               Change towels or paper towels until carpet dries.

·               If beer stain remains, proceed to Step 2.

Step 2

·               Do NOT use on coffee, tea or urine stains.

·               Mix 2 tablespoons of non-bleaching, non-sudsing household ammonia with 1 cup of lukewarm water.

·               Apply ammonia solution, rinse and blot as outlined in Step 1.

·               Do not dry with paper towels. Proceed to Step 3 to neutralize the ammonia solution.

Step 3

·               Mix 1 cup of white vinegar with 2 cups of water.

·               Apply vinegar solution, rinse and blot as outlined in Step 1.
