Nothing wakes you up in the morning like a cup of coffee and nothing makes dealing with the kids screaming at 7 AM or the thought of going to work less brutal than a nice cup of coffee! The problem with coffee is that it can stain really bad if you have a bit of a spill.
When you drink as much coffee as I do, coffee stains on the carpet are a real cause for concern, but today I have for you some excellent tips on how to get coffee stains out of your carpet.
Like dealing with stains on clothes or any other kind of fabric, getting to the spill as early as possible gives you the best chance of cleaning it off. Not only that, it is much, much easier to get a coffee stain out of the carpet when it is relatively fresh. So if you spill some coffee, do not leave it till later! Try and get to it right away.
Here are a few basic supplies that are perfect for helping you get your morning coffee out of your carpet.
If you have a spill and can get to it right away, this is how you are going to want to tackle it.
It is pretty easy to get rid of a fresh coffee stain, but you may need to repeat the process a couple of times.
An older coffee stain that has been there since breakfast time or even a few days can be removed, but it requires some serious elbow grease and most likely a few attempts. Repeat the steps for the fresh coffee stain removal until it has no effect….. now it is time to kick things up a notch!
If you are like me and on occasion, you like a little (who am I kidding, a lot) of cream in your coffee, you know that spilling this on the floor is horrible. One it wastes your coffee, but two it makes an awful mess. Using the methods up above may struggle to fully get rid of a coffee and cream stain and that is because of the cream. The best way to deal with a coffee and cream stain is with an actual cleaning product.
I know that there are many different carpet cleaning products on the market, but the best thing for a stain like this is actually a carpet remover that is designed for getting rid of pet stains. These have ingredients in them that are there to break down protein-based stains and it will also help get rid of the smell of old milk and cream.
Here are a few extra pro tips to help you.
It is not easy to get coffee stains out of a carpet, but it is certainly something that can be done, just remember, never scrub the coffee deeper into the carpet and that it will most likely take more than one attempt to get it fully out.
