THIS IS A HAMMER

Q: I held a barbecue at my new
apartment last weekend, and I found out afterward
that a few drinks were spilled on the living-room
carpet and some food was dropped as well. I
cleaned up as best as I could, but there are
still spots where the spills occurred. How can I
get rid of these stains? -- Abigail G.,
A: Carpet stains can be
difficult to completely eradicate, even if you
are able to tackle them immediately after a
spill. Commercial products are available to help,
but youve got to purchase the right product
for the task and use it exactly as instructed, or
the problem may get worse.
Heres a few common tips
on cleaning spills and stains.
Blot up liquid spills,
dont rub them. Rubbing will just grind the
liquid deeper into the carpet and padding.
Pick up food spills and
gently lift stuck-on food from the carpet fibers
using a blunt tool like a spoon.
Vacuum up dried food
particles, then blot the spill area with a damp
cloth to loosen and remove stains.
Coffee stains can be
tackled with warm water and white vinegar: dip a
clean cloth in the water and dab onto the stain,
then dab vinegar on. Blot up, then repeat until
the stain is gone.
Red wine can be blotted
up and the area rinsed with club soda -- if done
immediately after the spill. Dried red wine
should be re-moistened by dabbing on white wine
or vinegar and blotting up; repeat as often as
Other stains, like
chocolate or Kool-Aid, may come up if you dab the
area with a solution of 1/4 teaspoon dishwashing
liquid (Dawn or Joy) to 1 cup of warm water, let
sit for about 15 minutes and then blot up with a
clean cloth; repeat until the stain is gone. Dab
the area with white vinegar to remove the
If home remedies dont
work, head for a home improvement or carpet store
and ask for advice and products that address
exactly the type of stain youre dealing
HOME TIP: Patience and
persistence are needed to get older stains out of
a carpet. Never resort to scrubbing or rubbing a
stain, as this will damage the fibers and can
push the stain deeper into the carpet and
