Stain Treatment Guide

There are a few household items that are great to have on-hand just in case an accident occurs. The next time you're at the store, pop these into your cart:
  • White vinegar
  • Clear nail polish remover
  • Rust remover
  • Clear dish detergent
  • Mineral spirits
  • De-greaser
  • Ammonia multi-purpose cleaner
  • Absorbent cleaning powder
  • Carpet Shampoo

Please always adhere to the following before moving forward with treatment: test any spot removal agent with a few drops to an inconspicuous area to make certain the solvent will not alter the appearance of your rug. After applying several drops to the testing area, hold a white cloth on the wet area for 10 seconds. Examine the area rug and cloth for color transfer, color change or damage to the area rug. If everything looks okay, apply a small amount of the solvent to a white cloth, (don't spray directly on the stain) and work from the edges of the stain to the center to prevent spreading. Remember to blot- don't rub! Repeat if necessary.
