How to Remove Coffee Stains

Coffee stains are one of the most annihilating stains that could occur on carpets or other soft furniture fabrics. A coffee stain can be very tough to remove and on top of that it looks awful on any surface. Fortunately, if you act quickly with proper action to the stain, you can successfully get rid of the coffee stain.

  1. Use paper towels or a soft clean towel to blot the stain lightly. Do not rub the stain, but dab at it to avoid spreading it further over the carpet. Make sure to soak up as much coffee from the carpet as possible.
  2. Treat the stain after blotting with a commercial stain remover or a solution that you've made.
  3. To make your own cleaning solution, St John's Wood cleaners suggest you to mix together two tablespoons of white vinegar and a quart of warm water. Pour the solution onto the stain, and wait for the coffee to begin lifting by itself.
  4. Blot at the stained area gently with a dry white towel or a stack of paper towels, and reapply the cleaning solution. Remember to not rub, as this could push the stain deeper into the carpet fibers. Do the whole process until the stain is removed.
Always treat a coffee stain as soon as you can since any delay will only make coffee stain removal harder than actual it is. Make sure to consult a professional cleaning company, such as carpet cleaning St John's Wood, if your carpet have been stained and you don't know how to proceed.
