Coffee stains on the carpet are ugly and quite difficult to expunge. With proper cleaning methods and a steam cleaner, the stain will disappear without any problems. Here are some tips for removing old coffee stains.
Things You'll Need
- Scrub brush
- Seltzer water/ club soda
- Dish detergent, colorless
- Steam cleaner
- Soft rag
- Bucket of water
Pour seltzer water liberally over the stain and let it set there for 2 hours.
Add detergent to a bucket of water for a soapy mix. Wet your brush in the bucket and scrub the coffee stain with hard circular strokes until the carpet is damp.
Soak up the water with your rag and ring it out as you go. Keep soaking up water until the carpet is merely moist.
Follow the instructions to set up your steam cleaner. Use a scrub brush wand if one is included with your steamer. If not, any attachment will do.
Hold the steamer as close to the carpet as you can and work one area at a time. Gently rub the area after steaming with your rag. Repeat until done. Your stain should be gone. If stains persist, contact a carpet specialist.
