How to Remove Sticky Goo from Carpet

Some food and drinks spills can leave a sticky goo on your carpet. Stains such as syrup, honey and jelly bind the carpet fibers together and get difficult to remove. Fortunately, there a few common household items that will help you to get the sticky goo out of your carpet.

The things you will need are a spoon, a small container, liquid dish soap, ammonia and cloths.
  1. Scoop up the excess sticky goo from the carpet using a spoon or a dull butter knife.
  2. Pour 2 cups of warm water and 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap that is free of bleach into a small container. Use a spoon to stir the mixture thoroughly.
  3. Dip a cloth into the solution, and squeeze out the excess liquid. Dab at the sticky goo with the slightly wet cloth.
  4. Keep blotting until the goo vanishes. If you weren't able to remove the sticky goo with the soapy solution, proceed with the remaining steps.
  5. Mix together ½ cup of warm water and 1 tablespoon of ammonia in a clean container. Dampen a clean cloth with the ammonia solution, and blot the carpet. Carpet cleaning Clapham team advises to work from the outer edge of the sticky goo towards the centre.
  6. After the sticky goo is completely removed, blot the treated area with a clean cloth moistened with cool water to rinse the carpet.
  7. Wait for the area to dry completely before allowing anyone to walk on it.
