With the scorching sun and high temperatures during the summer, people seek different ways to cool themselves. Most people seek salvation by consuming a lot of fruits and refreshments that were purposely left in some place to cool down. One fruit that is typically used as a way to cool us down during the hotter months of the year, is the watermelon. Well, the watermelon can save us from the heat in the summer, but it is also the main source of stains on carpets and clothes during that season.
When it comes to cleaning watermelon stains, you should count yourself lucky, because according to carpet cleaning SW12 experts, the watermelon stains look hard to remove, but that is rarely the case. The reason for that is the high amount of water that the watermelon is made from. And water-based stain is always easy clean.
When the stain on the carpet occurs act quickly. Blot as much of the stain as you can. Use a towel or paper towels to blot the stain by working from the outside toward the centre of the stain. Usually, the watermelon stains can be cleaned relatively easy with a solution of 1 tablespoon dishwashing detergent and 1 cup water. Carpet cleaning Balham recommend soaking a clean cloth in that solution and blotting the stain with it.
If the stain is too stubborn and cannot be removed with this cleaning solution, use another method. Create a stronger cleaner by mixing 2 tablespoons of water and a cup of warm water. Pour the solution over the stain and blot it dry with a cloth. Rinse the ammonia solution off the carpet fabrics by mixing a solution from 2 cups of water and 1 cup of vinegar.
