GUIDE TO REMOVAL OF SPILLS AND STAINS
Remember to clean up a spill immediately when it occurs.

Good Carpet Care Consists Of Regular Vacuuming, Immediate Spill Clean Up And Professional Carpet (Steam) Cleaning


TYPE OF STAIN CLEANING AGENT

Greasy

Use a solvent spot cleaner like Energine, or Carbona, or Texize K2R. Carefully follow the directions of the label.

Water Soluble
Fruit juice, candy, alcoholic and soft drinks, sugar and starches.

Mix one quart water with one teaspoon mild detergent and one teaspoon white vinegar.


Combination Stains
Ice creams, gravy, coffee with cream.

Use
both cleaning agents for greasy and water soluble stains


SOME SPECIAL PROBLEMS

Mud
Let dry. Then crumble and remove excess. Spot clean as a water soluble stain.

Animal Urine
Blot up as much as possible. Next dilute the stain by cleaning with a cloth dampened by plain water. Then clean with an acid mixture such as one quart of water with one teaspoon white vinegar, or you can use club soda.

Nail Polish or Rubber Cement
Wipe up as much as possible. Then, use regular nail polish remover, without lanolin, applying it with an eye dropper. Wait a few seconds, and then blot with cloth. Repeat until all material is removed.

Cigarette Burns
If a burn area is small and damage is only at top of pile, snip off charred ends with manicure scissors, then spot-clean with cleaning agent for water soluble stains.

Note: If these procedures donot remove the stain, call a professional carpet cleaner.

USING PROPER CLEANING AGENT, FOLLOW THIS TECHNIQUE:

1. Before attempting test for color fastness in an inconspicuous area.

2.
If liquid, blot up as much as you can with a clean cloth, pressing firmly all around the spill to absorb as much of the liquid as possible. If material is solid, scrape up what you can with a spoon or dull edge of a knife.

3. Dampen cloth with the proper cleaning agent for the type of stain.

4. Wipe area gently, working from the outer edge to the center of the spot. Turn the cloth frequently so it is always clean, and do not get the carpet excessively wet.

5. Repeat process until the spot is removed.

6. Dry the carpet by weighing down half-inch pad of absorbent tissues or cloth to absorb the moisture; or, circulate air with a fan.

7. After the carpet is dry, brush the pile up.
