Once yo have gathered the materials, it’s now time to deal with the stain. First, apply some lukewarm water on the stain if it has already dried up. This will help make it easier for you to remove. After applying the water, blot the stain using the clean white cloth. You’ll see some of the stain transfer onto the cloth which is always a good sign. Continue doing this until the stain stops transferring to the cloth’s surface.
Next, prepare the cleaning solution which you will apply on the stain. Mix a teaspoon of mild non-bleach detergent with a liter of cold water and put some inside the spray bottle. Spray the stained area with this cleaning solution and continue blotting using the clean surface of the clean white cloth. Repeat this until the stain is completely gone.
After completing the stain removal, get a bucket of water and rinse the portion of the carpet you just finished cleaning. This will avoid having cleaning solution residue from being left behind. Finish it off by using your wet/dry vac to dry the area.
