The most common stains in household carpets

Do you have stains from red wine, various juices, herbs and tomato? They will disappear if you gently rub it with pure lemon juice, using soft cloth.

Did you spill a hot drink such as tea, coffee or hot chocolate? This could be treated with 1 litre of water and 1 tea spoon of glycerin. Once made, gently rub the spot, and then remove the remainder of the spill with soapy water.

To remove chewing gum form your carpet, first freeze it using an ice bag, then gently scrub it off with knife and wash the spot with soapy water.

A fresh carpet

To remove odours, just spray your carpet with mixture of table vinegar and water at a concentration of 1:4. If you prefer to use household chemicals, we would recommend cleaning your carpet with liquid soap foam.

Spread the foam on your carpet and leave for few minutes. Then clean the foam using a soft brush.
