Spot Removal in Carpet and Upholstry

You've tried powders, shampoos, and a carpet cleaner but that one spot remains. In this article I will tell you cheap and effective ways of spot cleaning carpet or upholstery that is heavily soiled in a small area.

First, if possible, you need to know what is causing the stain. Most of the products you buy at the store will easily, and effectively clean pet stains, wine, food, and plain dirt. Hydrogen Peroxide based cleaners (think Oxy Clean etc) will work best on organic stains such as grass, wine, and pet stains. Detergent based products work well on dirt and other general stains.

If you have really tough stains like ink, try Go-Jo or similar hand cleaners. Believe it or not, they are phenomenal at removing grease, oil and ink based stains. You will have to carefully rinse and blot several times but they will do the trick. The only drawback, is that it can lighten fabric that isn't color fast. It's generally a good idea to try it out on a small inconspicuous area when you can.

Believe it or not, a lot of stubborn or recurring stains, are caused by having too much soap (carpet shampoo) in the fabric. Soaps work, because they attract dirt. If you don't get the fabric thoroughly rinsed after cleaning, the left over surficants will continue to attract dirt. The stain will remain after cleaning, and may even darken over time.

The best solution in these cases is to gently rub the area with a damp sponge or cloth, then blot dry. Repeat this process until the stain is gone. If it's really bad, you can try using a soft scrub brush to help loosen the soil. Be very careful not to rub too hard or you will damage the threads in the fabric.

If you've tried all these and the spot still remains, you have one trick left before shelling out the money for a professional. STEAM! Steam is the trick the pros use to deep clean fabric. Caution is advised here, because you can easily burn yourself or damage your fabric.

To safely and effectively steam clean a small spot, you will need several plain white cloths Since this method is only recommended for small areas, a face cloth should be large enough. Actually, I would have at least four on hand for the job. You will also need a common iron.

-Plug your iron into an outlet that will allow you to reach the area to be cleaned.
-Make sure you have a stable platform ( a large square piece of wood should do) to stand the iron on.
-Turn the iron to it's highest setting and stand it up to preheat.
-Place 2 or 3 cloths in a pan of clear cool water.
-Place the dry cloths nearby where you can grab them quickly.
-Remove a cloth from the water and wring it, removing as much water as you can. We want it damp, not wet.
-Place the damp cloth over the stain.
-Place the iron on the cloth and apply gentle pressure for 10 to 15 seconds. This should cause the steam to "flash" downwards into the fabric.
-Lift the iron and carefully stand it up, facing away from you.
-Lift the damp cloth by the corners (it will be hot where the iron was) and drop it back into the water.
-Place a dry cloth over the area and push down with your palms several times to draw the moisture and stain from the fabric.

You will probably have to repeat this spot cleaning process 3 or more times to fully remove the stain. Just be careful not to get the fabric too wet. If it still feels damp after dabbing with the dry cloth, wait a day or so before trying again.

I have used these methods to effectively spot clean my carpet and furniture for many years. Only once did I give up and call the pro's. That was after my (then) 14 year old son was helping me overhaul an engine, and forgot to take his shoes off before going in the house. The long series of oily footprints all the way to the kitchen (and back) was just too daunting a task.
