In part one of this article, you have read how to prepare your carpet for the cleaning and why you should choose to make your own cleaner. If you have decided to do that, then here, in this part, you will find out how to make the cleaner and how to easily remove the soft drink stain with it. Here is what you need to do:
If you decide to make your own cleaner, companies cleaning in Frankston say you will have to mix half a cup of cool water with ¼ a cup of a mild liquid dish washing detergent. After that, take a sponge, dip it into the cleaning solution and dab the stain with it. Then gently work the solution into the stain with your fingers or with the sponge.
Remember to always work from the outside of the stain towards the inside, because this way you prevent spreading the stain and making a bigger mess. Leave the solution to work for about 20 minutes.
Now it is time to rinse it off. In order to do that, you will have to take a clean cloth and dampen it with some cool water. Use it to dab the area. Continue with the dabbing until no more soap is seen. Rinse the cloth from time to time. Cleaning Frankston company says that you should always wring out the excess water and get the carpet only as wet as necessary.
If after these steps the stain is still there, make an other cleaning solution. Mix together one part of white vinegar with three parts of water. Use another cloth or a sponge and work the solution into the stain. Leave it for half an hour to work and then rinse of the same way again.
Now it is time to dry the carpet. If you do not have the time to wait for the carpet to air dry, you can speed up the drying process a little. You can use a fan for that. Simply put it to blow towards the wet area.
An other way to make things faster is to put a cotton towel over the wet area and then, put something heavy on it. This way, cleaning Frankston company explains, that the towel will absorb all the liquid from the carpet and will make drying really easy.
I really hope you managed to remove the stain and you fount these tips useful. Good luck.
