Remove Coffee Stains from a CarpetWe recently spilled an entire cup of coffee with cream in it on our carpet just like it shows in this picture, but only larger. It was an accident that could have been prevented, but it is too late for assessing blame. We now have to focus on how to remove it. We talked to some friends, did a quick online search and also bought some stain remover from a hardware store. Whether we needed to do all of this is unclear, but the steps we followed based on the input we got, did the job and we want to share it with out readers. This is how to remove coffee stains from a carpet.

Remove Coffee Stains from a Carpet – Follow These Steps

Whatever you do, do  not wait. Get started now and follow these steps before the coffee seeps into the carpet and starts to dry on the fibers.

Step 1: Grab paper towels and begin blotting up as much of the liquid as you can. Do not rub the carpet. This could push the liquid further into the carpet and into the fibers.

Step 2: Dish towels will also work, just don’t rub the carpet. Soak up the liquid as much as you can.

Step 3: Take one cup of water and soak the area with water. Next use more paper towels and again soak up as much of the liquid as you can. The water will help to dilute the remaining coffee stains and  help to remove more of the stain.

Step 4: Mix two cups of warm water and a quarter cup of lemon juice.

Step 5: Apply the solution using a sponge. Cover the entire area and gently sponge up the stain.

Step 6: After use paper towels to soak up the water and more of the stain. The lemon juice acts as a mild acid to remove the coffee from the fibers. Do not use more than a quarter cup to avoid any long term change to the carpet.

Step 7: Rinse the area with cold water and using paper towels to soak up any liquid and dry it as much as you can.

Step 8: This step may not be required. We followed this step after we had completed the previous steps. we purchase a stain remover for carpets that specifically mentioned coffee. Follow the steps outlined on the bottle and remove any final indications of coffee stain.

This worked for us and you would never know that we had spilled coffee on our carpet. For more information about removing stains, click here.
