Chocolate is one of the people’s favorite treat. Unfortunately, the stains that it may cause contain natural brown pigment and a natural oil from the cocoa beans and other ingredients both working together as staining agents. Happily, it’s possible to remove chocolate stains from your carpeting using supplies you probably have at home. Remove chocolate stains carefully to ensure they are not going to spread further. “Carpet cleaning Croydon” provides a few useful tips how to deal with the chocolate stains:
To begin try to remove as much of the chocolate stain substance as possible with a spoon. Dispose of the chocolate substance in a trash bag and throw it away.
Lay paper towels over the chocolate stain and blot with your hands to remove as much stain moisture or liquid as you can. Toss out soiled paper towels and proceed blotting with clean paper towels until there’s no further transfer of chocolate to the paper towels.
Prepare a mixture of 1/4 tsp. clear dish washing liquid and 1 cup of cool water in a bowl. Submerge a clean cloth in the soapy solution and wring out the excess liquid. Dab at the chocolate stain, starting at the outside of the stain and working your way in.
Then rinse the cloth and dip it in the soap suds again. Again blot until the chocolate stain in your carpet lightens.
Moisten a clean cloth with plain water and rinse the detergent from your carpet fibers by using it. Blot at the carpeting, rinse the cloth again, and blot some more to remove the soap.
Mix 2 tbsp. ammonia with 1 cup lukewarm water in a bowl. Treat your carpet with the ammonia solution by blotting it onto the carpet with a clean cloth. Alternate blotting the ammonia onto the carpet with wicking the ammonia solution up with a clean, dry cloth.
Use a solution made of 1 cup white vinegar with 2 cups water to neutralize the ammonia in the carpet and remove any remnants of chocolate stain. Blot the entire area, then remove as much of the liquid as possible by pressing a clean, dry cloth onto the carpeting.
Then let your carpeting to air-dry completely.
