From time-to-time, an accident is bound to happen and you will need a good stain remover for carpets. It doesn’t matter what stain your carpet has suffered from, there is nothing that WD-40 Multi-Purpose Spray can’t handle.
1. Removing Juice Stains
We all like juice, but it can create horrific stains on all kinds of carpets. Even if you have a pristine white carpet that has been splashed with juice, WD-40 is still a great option for removing the stain from the carpets.
The first thing you need to do is blot the entire stain using a dry towel. Don’t rub it as the stain will become larger and more difficult to remove. Once the stain has been blotted, you need to drench a clean lint-free cloth with a few liberal sprays of WD-40 and pat over the affected area. Once the colour comes off, you can switch to the towel again and try to wipe off the stain completely.
WD-40 is also great for removing coffee stains, not only from carpets, but shirts, trousers, floor tiles and counters too. Regardless of the nature of the coffee stained material, all that you need to do is spray a little WD-40 onto the stain. Give it time to work and rub it off with a clean cloth or put the item in the washing machine.
2. Removing Pet Stains
Pet owners often face the challenge of cleaning up after their pets but when an ‘event’ has occurred over your carpet, you might start to panic. No need to worry – with WD-40, a great stain remover for carpets is at hand!
First, start cleaning the initial mess by picking it up while wearing protective gloves. Use the same blot technique you used for juice stains and try not to smear it across the rest of the carpet.
The next thing you need to do is apply some WD-40 over the stain as above, but you will also have to neutralise the odour. This can be done with the help of some warm water and white vinegar. Make a mixture of both these substances in a ¼ cup and let it soak over the stain. Once the stain has dried up, then you can begin working on it with the WD-40 minus the odour.
3. Removing Blood Stains
Firstly, you need to treat the spots of blood using either hot or warm water. Blood is known to coagulate due to heat and hence, won’t permeate the fibres of your carpet.
The next step here would be to spray some WD-40 over the stain and enough to liberally moisten the entire area. Now get your hands on some white cloth and rub over the stain. You will see that the bloodstains would be transferred over to the cloth slowly. Keep repeating this process as many times as you think is necessary.
Before applying WD-40, make sure you perform a test on a discreet area of the carpet. This will ensure that there will be no lasting damage to the carpet. Also, Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly if they come into contact with the product.
It doesn’t matter what stain you have on your carpet, WD-40 will truly work wonders in bringing it back to its original glory. Good luck!
