Carpet Coffee Stain Conundrums in Commercial Buildings
Tips on how you can get those stubborn coffee stains out of your carpeting:
Always start with water! If you catch the spill immediately, take a clean towel and blot blot blot. Start at the edges and work your way to middle. Spray with water and repeat until the coffee is all removed. On a still wet stain this may be all you need to do!
Still stained? Try foamy white shaving cream. Gently rub into the carpet without pressing (you don't want to push the stain in further). Allow to stand for a few minutes, then blot. To rinse, spray with water and blot. Repeat process until completely rinsed.
Got an already dry stain? No problem! Make a baking soda and water paste, rub into the carpet, and allow to dry. Once dry, vacuum up the powder. You should be stain free!
Stain a tad more stubborn? Mix one part white vinegar, two parts water and spray directly to the stained area. Blot with a clean dry towel. Rinse by spraying water and thoroughly blotting. Repeat the rinse until all the vinegar is removed.
Once your stain is gone, take a dry towel and lay over still wet area, stomp your feet over the towel to remove excess moisture. Once the area is dry, vacuum to return carpet to its normal texture.
