Rugs are always prone to unsightly stains. While they add great style to your home, they tend to be quite high maintenance when it comes to cleaning. A rug made of delicate fabric or wool can also be very expensive. Hence, you should regularly clean them to maintain their beautiful appearance. Continue reading to find out how to effectively remove a nasty stain from your rug.
🛒 In order to make a good homemade solution, you will need the following:
– ¼ teaspoon of liquid dish soap
– ¼ teaspoon of white vinegar
– 1 cup of water
– some spare cloth
– a dishcloth.
🧽 Follow these instructions closely and your rug will look amazing in no time:
◼ Pour 1 cup of water into a container and add the liquid dish soap and white vinegar. Mix these ingredients very well so the soap can completely dissolve in the water.
◼ The solution should be funneled into a small spray bottle for easier application and quicker cleaning. Using this method, you will be able to directly spray the cleaning solution on the stain.
◼ Allow it to sit there for 10 minutes to do its magic on the stain.
◼ With a clean spare cloth, gently blot the stain until it is transferred to the cloth. Avoid rubbing the stain so that you do not damage the rug. When you rub the solution, the fibers may be picked up and the stain may spread.
◼ After that, soak a dishcloth in plain water and dab it on the stain. By doing so, you will be able to pick up the leftover cleaning solution. To remove soapy residue, dab several times before rinsing.
◼ Last but not least, let the rug air dry. Sprinkle about 1 cup of baking soda all over your rug to maintain its fresh smell. It needs to sit there for about 3 hours to absorb the smell and moisture. To remove the baking soda, vacuum the rug thoroughly. Your rug now looks clean and fresh.
