One of the most common stains are often chocolate related. Usually the cause of these spills are due to the smaller, and more clumsier versions of us running around our homes. With the upcoming list of holidays fast approaching, it’s a good idea to be ready for the spills and accidents. Quickly tending to the problem before it sets brings much better results. Remember carpet, and upholstery fabrics in particular, can vary and before applying any store-bought cleaner or home remedy blends, be sure to conduct a patch test in an inconspicuous area first to ensure the carpet or upholstery will not be compromised in any way.
How to Remove Chocolate Milk Stains from Carpets & Upholstery
We will begin with chocolate milk. There are a few diverse ways to remove chocolate milk stains, but today we will just give one example.
– Place a paper towel over the stain and with a back of the spoon, gently press the area and let the paper towel do its absorbent powers. Repeat this step until the stain is left damp and all surface liquid has been lifted up.
– Mix 1 Tbsp. liquid dish soap into 2 cups water. A spray bottle will optimize usage, but whatever container you choose will be sufficient.
– Using a pre-dampened clean cloth, apply your solution to the stain working from the outside in. If the stain is begin to lighten, you know the stain is being removed.
– When you have achieved maximum results, rinse the area with cool water on a clean cloth and blot the area.
– With a clean dry cloth, blot out moisture and allow to dry.
– If a stain remains, administer 2-3 drops of a dry-cleaning solvent onto the stain. Blot with a clean cloth. If a stubborn stain is still left behind, a professional might be needed from Direct Carpet Cleaners to use professional grade detergents and equipment to annihilate the stain.
