You’ve been looking forward to that spaghetti bolognaise all day and finally, you’re home from work and able to get started on the cooking. Of course when you have little ones they can get over-excited trying to help mummy serve the dinner, and the next thing you know their little hands have lost their grip on the plate and you have pasta and tomato stains all over the carpet!
This may seem like a complete disaster, but with the right ingredients and these handy carpet cleaning tips you can get that awful stain right out:
Things You Will Need
- A spoon
- Paper towels
- Cold water
- White vinegar or lemon juice
Step 1 – Pick up all that fallen spaghetti and scoop as much of the excess sauce as possible with a spoon. Start from the edge and work your way inwards to prevent the sauce from spreading over a larger area.
Step 2 – Absorb any tomato juices that have soaked into the carpet by blotting with paper towels. Do not rub at the stain or it will damage the fibres.
Step 3 – Pour cold water over the whole stained area and blot again.
Step 4 – Pour white vinegar over the stain and let it sit for twenty minutes.
Step 5 – Rinse the area once more with cold water and blot until it’s dry.
Alternatively, you can use lemon juice instead of white vinegar, the citric acid works to break up the stain.
