For stubborn carpet stains, hydrogen peroxide is a very effective stain remover. However this method should only be used on colourfast carpets.
What You Will Need
- Hydrogen Peroxide 3%
- Cold Water
- Tissues or Paper Towels
- Clean Cloth
- Moisten the ends of the fabric with hydrogen peroxide 3%.
- Let stand for 1 hour.
- Blot the carpet with a clean cloth.
- Rinse the area with clean water.
- Place a pad of paper towels or tissues over the area and place a brick, heavy book or a similar object on top. This should absorb any excess moisture out of the carpet.
- Repeat until carpet is stain free.
- You should always test this method on a small discrete part of the carpet first, to ensure that the material is not damaged.
- Do not use any chlorine bleach products with this method, as mixing with hydrogen peroxide can create a poisonous gas.
- Never scrub a blood stain, always use a blotting motion.
- Do not use hot water. This will only help to set the stain.
