Use Shaving Cream for Stains
Cleaning service professionals say that the best cleaner to remove general stains from carpets is shaving cream. It can be used to remove any types of stain. You just need to apply the shaving cream directly to the stain and allow it to sit for about half an hour.
Make sure that the shaving cream is set and once it is set completely, you may blot the cream away with a dry cloth. You can finish the cleaning by spraying off the area with a solution of water and vinegar mixed in a ratio of 1:1, and wiping away the solution with a clean and dry cloth.
Have you found chewing gum sticking onto your beautiful carpet? What is the best way to get the chewing gum out of your carpet? In the opinion of house cleaning experts, you can use a couple of ice cubes to remove the chewing gum from your carpet.
Freeze dry chewing gum sticking to the carpet for about thirty seconds and when you find that the gum is frozen solid, use a spoon to lift up the chewing gum. You may need to cut a few strands of the carpet to remove the gum completely from the carpet. While cutting the strands, make sure to cut strands as close to the chewing gum as possible.
Burning candles can result in wax dripping onto carpets. Wax can dry quickly and get embedded to the strands of the carpet in no time. The best way to remove wax from carpet is to heat the wax again. Place a dry cloth over the wax and put a hot iron box on top of the cloth to warm up the wax. On heating, the wax will melt and stick on to the cloth.
You can repeat the process to ensure that you have removed maximum wax from the carpet. The remaining wax can be scrapped off using a butter knife. After scraping off the wax, you can lay a paper towel over the area and iron the paper. The remaining wax will melt and bind to the paper. After a few applications, the wax will be gone.
