Lysol Stain Removal

The Lysol brand cleaning product can leave a stain on the fabric of a sofa or on a carpet or rug that it has cleaned. You can remove the Lysol stain with some cleaning supplies purchased from a hardware store or a home and garden shop. A few household supplies will be needed as well, but no special tools or equipment.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper towels
  • Soft white cloths
  • Spot removal solution
  • Telephone books

Video of the Day

Blot the stain with paper towels to absorb any liquid. Remove the paper towels after a minute, and place another set of paper towels on the stain. Remove the paper towel after two minutes have passed.

Apply spot removal solution to an edge of a soft, white cloth. Place the edge of the cloth against a corner of the stain. Press down on the edge as you work the cloth in a circular pattern around the perimeter of the stain, moving in toward the center with every rotation. Cover the stain with the cloth once you have reached its center. After four minutes, blot the stain with the cloth.

If the stain is still visible, repeat this procedure with another clean, white cloth; otherwise, wash the area with a water-moistened, soft, white cloth -- use cold tap water only.

Blot the area dry with a soft, white cloth. Sprinkle absorbent cleaning compound on the surface where the stain was, as well as the surrounding area. Place a few paper towels on top of the compound. Place a telephone book on the towels. Leave it alone for four hours, then repeat the procedure with more compound and new paper towels.

Remove the telephone book, and throw the paper towels in the trash.

Apply mild spot removal solution to an edge of a soft, white cloth. Place the edge of the cloth on the surface where the stain was, and work the cloth around the area in a circular motion. Blot the area with a dry edge of the cloth. Leave the area alone to air-dry.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not use paper towels that have patterns or designs on them -- the ink can transfer to the surface of the material you are trying to clean.
