How To Take Out Carpet Stains Caused By Grape Juice
What You Will Need Before You Start
- Clean sponge
- Lemon juice
- White vinegar
- Paper towels
Murphy’s Law states that if your child has grape juice in his or her hand, the grape juice is going to wind up spilled on your carpet. Don’t cry over spilled grape juice, it is actually not that big of a deal to clean up so long as you move swiftly into action.
- Blot up as much of the excess liquid as possible with paper towels, the sooner that you start to soak up the excess juice, the better your chances are that the grape juice won’t soak down deep into the carpet fibers.
- Spritz enough lemon juice onto the stain to completely cover it, and use more paper towels to soak the liquid up.
- Apply another soaking of lemon juice and use a clean sponge to blot at any of the stain that might be persistently hanging onto the fibers of the carpet.
The juice should lift out of the carpet fairly easily if you treat it when it is still freshly spilled. If it has dried then you might have good luck with white vinegar on the stain, or one of the better quality carpet stain treating solutions on the market. Just be sure to carefully read all of the instructions for use.
If you have carpet in your home then it is a good idea to learn how to take stains out of carpet so that you aren’t left feeling irritated or frustrated when spills and accidents happen. Remember that if you plan on selling your home in the near future, it can help to prevent the need to pay to replace the carpets if you ensure they are kept in pristine condition before the house goes on the market.
