Coffee is a drink which is loved the world over, but it becomes less than popular when it has been spilt on someone’s carpet, especially if that person is unsure which carpet cleaning method to use in order to remove the stain it has created.
Not only does the colour of coffee make it a particularly unsightly stain, especially on lighter coloured carpets, but with many people having sugar in their coffee, it can create a sticky residue in the fibres of your carpets where the stain is located
The first tip we can give you is to not panic, which unfortunately is what most people do whenever something has been spilt and is now making a stain in their carpet. Their immediate thought is to rush to the kitchen, grab a cloth, and then furiously rub that area of the carpet in the hope than they are removing the stain.
In most instances, they will not be removing the coffee stain, and in fact, are probably making the stain a greater problem than it needs to be. The reason is that by rubbing, they might be soaking up some of the coffee, but at the same time, they are spreading the coffee over a wider area and thus the stain gets bigger.
