Until then, here are a few tips for removing stains from your are rugs.
Food and Drink
For stains like ketchup, tomato sauce, mustard, etc, try combining one tablespoon of ammonia with one cup of water. You could also try diluted Dawn dishwashing liquid!
Pens explode when we’re least expecting it! For these stains, use non oily hairspray, or rubbing alcohol. Blot gently as to not rub the stain further into the area rugs.
Stains resulting from our loving (and loved) pets are some of the most common among households. Don’t sweat it! Try mixing a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar. After soaking up the urine with paper towels, gently blot out the stain.
Like we said, sometimes these things just can’t be prevented. For this one, mix ¼ teaspoon of dishwashing detergent with 4 cups of lukewarm water. Gently blot the stain clean, then use a damp, clean cloth to absorb the rest.
