Carpet stains are a terrible nightmare for any homeowner or housekeeper. Luckily, there’s a solution for them. The first thing you should take into account is that stains of any kind need to be cleaned right away if you want to remove them successfully. We recommend using paper towel or a clean, dry cloth to absorb the stain. Keep in mind that the stain removal depends on the type of carpet. We suggest making a test in a reduced, not very visible area of the carpet to check that the technique used doesn’t cause any damage to it.
Rust stains are usually difficult to remove because of their chemical composition. Some stain removers contain strong agents that make stains even harder to remove, instead of making them disappear.
Make sure to use a stain remover that’s been specially designed to remove rust stains on carpets. You can obtain the best results by mixing the stain remover with these natural ingredients:
1. Apply plenty of stain remover with a sponge and let it work for 5 minutes. Then, cleanse the surface with another sponge soaked in warm water. You’ll see the results right away.
2. Afterwards, mix some grains of salt with lemon juice and squeeze it on the stain. Let it stand for 24 hours, and the following day rinse the carpet with a wet towel. Repeat the procedure if necessary.
