How To Remove Coffee Stains In Carpet With Three Easy Steps

Many people love their first cup of coffee in the morning just as much as they love their plush new carpet… but these two spheres don’t always play well together.

Still groggy with sleep and clutching a scalding hot cup of joe will always lead to tragedy one day.

Your best bet is to prepare for when that day happens.

So, how do you prepare for that day and how do you turn a dog’s dinner into a Sunday roast?

The good news is there are some very simple home solutions to this problem.

But always remember, time is of the essence and the faster you act the easier it will be to overcome.

Still, if you have old coffee stains in your carpet, there is still hope!

Read the article below for instructions.

Does Coffee Stain Carpet Permanently?

If not treated quickly, coffee can permanently stain your carpet.

To stop your morning coffee delight from becoming one with your carpet, follow these simple DIY steps:

Blot The Carpet Stain

Use a soft damp cloth to blot the stain.

Make sure to begin on the outside and work inwards as this will aid in preventing it from spreading further.

In addition, don’t rub the carpet as this could make the problem far worse.

Once most of the coffee has been removed, add some cold water and continue to blot as this is the surest way to dilute it.

Apply Carpet Cleaner For Coffee Stains

Sometimes, we spill coffee without even noticing it and nothing puts us in a state of near-heart attack whenever that happens.

So, how do you remove old coffee stains?

This time, you want to use warm water and blot at the stain with the damp cloth.

Add a little cleaning solution into the mix sporadically.

This may take more elbow grease but with enough time it should gradually work the stain out.

Unfortunately, depending on the type of carpet and coffee you consume, the stain will be too far gone and already deeply embedded in the carpet’s fibres for you to be able to clean manually.

In this case, you may need to call a professional carpet cleaner to solve the problem for you.

Does Baking Soda Remove Stains From Your Carpet?

Baking soda is fantastic for cleaning — and not only in the living room.

It’s especially effective for grease and red wine stains.

Sprinkle some on the stain and give it time to work its magic, ensuring to hoover and clean up afterwards.

How To Get Red Wine Out Of Carpet

Light-coloured carpets can be the bane of every owner’s existence.

Stains show up all too easily and make it difficult to keep our carpets pristine.

When you find yourself in this situation:

  1. Blot as much of the spilt wine as possible using an absorbent cloth and ensure not to rub as this can make the problem worse.
  2. Apply carpet stain remover and wait for up to five minutes.
    Continue to blot at the stain until it is completely gone.
  3. For those extra-stubborn stains, combine washing-up liquid and white vinegar 1:1 and add two cups of warm water.
    Now sponge the carpet with the concoction and blot dry.
  4. Repeat the process, this time only using cold water.
    Blot until dry and the stain should be gone.
  5. If the stain is still visible, it may be time to consult a professional.
    They have access to tools and experience that can remove stains from any kind of carpet.
