How to Remove Grease Stains from Carpet

Grease can come from many things, such as last night’s dinner or your car. Like any other type of stain, you’ll want to get rid of it as soon as possible. Listed below are two different methods to help you remove grease stains from your carpet…

Method # 1

What you’ll need:

- Absorbent pads

- Cornmeal (or a similar absorbent substance)

- A stiff bristle brush

- Dry-cleaning solvent

- A clean sponge

- Dry spotter

1)Blot up as much of the grease stain as possible and apply an absorbent substance like cornmeal.

2)Use a stiff bristle brush to brush and break up the stain.

3)If the grease is still visible, apply a dry-cleaning solvent using a clean sponge.

4)Apply a dry spotter to the stained area.

5)Using an absorbent pad, cover the stain with more dry spotter. Allow the pad to continue to pick up the stain.

Method #2

What you’ll need:

- A sponge

- Water

- White vinegar

- Wet spotter

- Absorbent pads

1)Sponge the stain using a bit of water.

2)Apply a few drops of white vinegar, along with a wet spotter.

3)Pour a generous amount of wet spotter onto an absorbent pad and place the pad directly onto the grease stain.

4)Change the pad as the grease stain gradually disappears.

5)If needed, repeat steps 1-3, flushing the stain with water.

Many people enjoy an occasional glass of red wine, but enjoyment can quickly turn into panic when you accidentally spill your Cabernet on your carpet or upholstery. The good news is, if you start removing the stain before it fully sets into your carpet or upholstery, you’ll have a much better chance of getting rid of it.

Here are a few steps you can follow to try and remove your red wine stains:

Carpet –

Water and baking soda method:

1)Use a white cloth to blot as much of the stain as you can.

2)After blotting, pour cold water directly onto the stain. Continue blotting until you've lifted as much of the stain as possible.

3)Prepare a baking soda paste. Mix a three to one ratio of water to baking soda and apply it to the affected area.

4)Once the paste is dry, vacuum the stain.

Vinegar method:

1)Use a clean cloth or paper towels to blot the stain.

2)Pour two cups of warm water into a bowl. Add one tablespoon of white vinegar and one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid. Mix.

3)Dip a sponge into the solution and apply directly onto the stain.

4)Continue to blot until the stain has lifted.


Upholstery –

1)Blot up as much of the wine as possible.

2)Mix one tablespoon of liquid hand dishwashing detergent with two cups of cool water.

3)Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the solution.

4)Blot until the liquid is absorbed.

5)Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the stain disappears.

6)Sponge with cold water and blot dry.
