Cooler temperatures tend to entice most people to snuggle into their most comfortable spot on the sofa, turn on their favorite movie or television program and enjoy a wonderful cup of hot cocoa. This time of year is also heavily occupied with chocolate treats of every kind, from rich milk chocolate bars, creamy truffles, chocolate covered nuts and decadent caramels that have been drenched in a silky layer of chocolate. It is a great time of year to give chocolate as a gift to those friends and family who we love and appreciate. With all of this chocolate being passed around and consumed, it is probable that a spill or accident will occur that will leave your carpet not feeling as excited about chocolate as you are.
Cleaning Chocolate Stains Out of Carpet
A chocolate spill or accident on your carpet is one of the worst kinds. Chocolate has the ability to leave behind a very obvious and dark colored stain, especially on lighter colored carpets. Whether you have accidentally spilled your rich cup of hot cocoa or you discover that one of your children has used your carpet as a hand towel to wipe off melted chocolate from their hands, your carpet can take quite a beating this time of year from all of the festive treats that are being passed around.
Cleaning Carpet Stains
One of the most important steps to take when avoiding an ugly chocolate stain on your carpets is to clean up the spill immediately after it has happened. If chocolate is allowed to linger on the surface of your carpet for very long, it will soon seep deep into the carpet’s fibers, making it even more difficult to completely remove. While all accidents are not always noticed right when they occur, you will save the carpet by attending to the mess as soon as possible.

One mistake that home owners often make is scrubbing vigorously directly on top of the spill of accident. When this is done, sometimes the chocolate will sink even deeper into the carpet’s fibers. It is important to first gently dab the spill first and take up as much as you can before scrubbing the surface.
