First Aid Stain Treatment

Accidents will happen. If something gets spilled on to your carpet, take prompt action to prevent staining. You will need some clean white absorbent cloth or tissue and four basic solutions:

  1. Dry Cleaning Solvent.
  2. Detergent solution – one teaspoon of gentle detergent for washing woollens to half a pint (0.75 litres) of warm water.
  3. Detergent and vinegar solution – add one teaspoonful of white (not malt) vinegar to the detergent solution.
  4. Ammonia Solution – one teaspoonful of branded household ammonia (available from hardware stores) to one cup of warm water.
