This is the sequence of the previous blog post “4 unusual stains”. Here we will give you a hand in the tough job called stain removal. All cleaning services out there may say that stains should be left to professionals, but here’s another thing. Try cleaning the mess yourself, but don’t do the first thing that comes to mind. Follow our advice first. The most important thing is to identify the stain. If it is:
- Red wine: It may sound strange at first but wine can be cleaned with wine. A red wine stain can be treated with white wine. Wipe off the stain immediately as it occurs. Thus, it is half-cleaned. Dry the area, better let it air dry. Then pour little white wine on. Rinse and repeat if necessary.
- Bleach stains: Bleach has probably caused discolouration of the stained area. The smartest thing you can do is to re-dye the area with same colour.
- Grease stains: Use rubbing alcohol and blot the stain with it.
- Coffee: Wash immediately with hot water, and apply stain remover if the stain has set.
- Candle wax: Use an ice cube to help the wax harden and then scrub with knife. Grab an iron and a paper sheet and iron the stain with the sheet on the top of it.
Next time when a stain occurs do not contact End of Tenancy Cleaning London immediately. Wait a second and think what you still can do while the spot is fresh and easy to clean. Carpet cleaning is not as hard as it seems.« « previous post: Always Question Your Professional Cleaner | next post: Easy and Fun House Cleaning » »
