24 hours and the carpet stain is gone!

What can you do if you spill something on your carpet? First of all don’t panic.
Panicking can make a person scrub the carpet which may leave a permanent distortion mark.
Here is a quick tip that is easy and works great.

First blot as much up from the rug or carpet as you can with a dry cloth. With a damp or wet cloth blot the remainder. A small amount of dish soap can be added to the water where you wet your cloth. Keep blotting until no more transfer. Then dry it up with the dry cloth.

Now I know what you’re saying. I know this. Here’s the neat part. Get a dry white or well laundered towel, fold it and put it over the stain. Put something heavy (phone books, small tool box) on the towel and leave it for 12-24 hours. Don’t inspect it before then because you’ll stop the process. (it’s that physics thing) Stains always dry upwards in carpet or rugs. It will wick right up into the towel. You may be presently suprised tomorrow.
