How to remove coffee stain from carpet
Most people’s morning routines consist of a few basic habits that help anyone start the day in a proper manner. Drinking your coffee is an essential activity for many, even though it is a morning must have, coffee can sometimes cause trouble. Unexpected scenarios like accidentally dropping the cup filled with your favourite “brewed awakening” beverage, are indeed unpleasant. Starting the day on a bad note doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t be able to deal with the unpredicted consequences. Removing coffee stains may be a hard task to tackle, but there are a few tips and tricks you could try before booking a professional carpet stain removal service.
Coffee stain removal tricks
The first and the most important action you could undertake is to take a clean white cloth and lightly blot all the excess liquid that was spilled on the surface of the carpet. Do it carefully, try not to apply any rubbing movements. Make sure that you press hard enough so that the piece of cloth absorbs as much as possible of the coffee.
To prepare your own stain removal solution you will need:
- ½ tsp of liquid dish soap
- ½ tsp of white vinegar
- two cups of warm water
Mix the mentioned ingredients in a bowl and take a clean white towel or any white cloth and soak it in the mixture. Gently wipe the stained carpet area and see how the tints of the stain will slowly but gradually start to transfer onto the cloth. Repeat these steps until you achieve a desirable result. After you have managed to clean most of the unwanted coffee stain, you can take another towel, soak it in some cold water and clean what’s left of the cleaning solution. This step is important because it will ensure a clean surface which only needs to be dried out.

If the spilled coffee was sweetened or there was creamer in it, it might be harder to get rid of the smudge. In that case you may even have to either look for a suitable cleaning solvent on the market or contact a professional carpet cleaner.
Although there are a bunch of carpet stain removal tips on the Internet and everyone has access to them, don’t trust these cleaning life hacks unconditionally. Yes, it is possible to get rid of coffee stains using only the supplies and ingredients you can find in every home, but keep in mind that that DIY cleaning solution might not be suitable for every carpet material – delicate fabrics like silk could need professional treatment.
