  • 7 Common Stains (and How to Get Them Out of Your Oriental Rug)


    Posted by

    When the inevitable spills occur, it’s important to act quickly so the spill doesn’t have a chance to become a stain in your beautiful Oriental rug.  Here’s a reference sheet to quickly address common household spills and stains:

    1. Pet Urine– Blot with cold water, then use a cleaning solution of one teaspoon of clear dishwashing fluid mixed with one cup of cold water.  Continue rinsing with cold water until the urine and the cleaning solution are removed completely.
    2. Wine– First, apply a rust remover solution to the affected area. When the area has dried, blot it with cold water and use a cleaning solution of one teaspoon of clear dishwashing fluid mixed with one cup of warm water.
    3. Blood– Blot thoroughly with cold water. Then use a cleaning solution of one teaspoon of clear dishwashing fluid mixed with one cup of cold water.  Rinse the entire area with cold water until the blood and cleaning solution are removed completely.
    4. Juice– Blot with cold water, and then clean the area with a cleaning solution of one teaspoon of clear dishwashing fluid mixed with one cup of warm water.
    5. Vomit– Use a cleaning solution of one teaspoon of clear dishwashing fluid mixed with one cup of cold water. Rinse the area thoroughly.
    6. Coffee– Blot the affected area with cold water. Make a cleaning solution of one teaspoon of dishwashing fluid mixed with one cup of warm water.  When the area has dried, apply a dry-cleaning solvent until you are satisfied with the results.
    7. Milk– Blot the area with warm water.  Once the area has dried, apply a dry-cleaning solvent. Finally, use a cleaning solution of one teaspoon of dishwashing fluid mixed with one cup of warm water.
