Furniture Stain on Carpet

  • If liquid, blot dry with a dry WHITE absorbent towel. If down in the backing it is highly unlikely that you will get all of the stain out. The fibers will probably be permanently stained. If dry, blot with odorless mineral spirits or alcohol on a white towel. Do not pour directly on the carpet or you will destroy the latex glue holding the primary and secondary backing together. Blot with a solution of 1/4 of a cup of liquid HAND dish washing detergent per cup of lukewarm water. Blot with lukewarm water with a white towel. Blot dry with a dry WHITE absorbent towel. Apply a one-half inch layer of WHITE (no printing) paper towels to the affected area and weight down with a flat heavy object and remove the next day.
