How To Remove Ketchup From Carpet




To clean ketchup from synthetic carpet, follow the procedures listed below.  Begin with step one, progressing only to the next step if necessary.  Remember that you always want to use the gentlest approach to cleaning a carpet stain first.


(Begin with step 1, if the stain remains then proceed to the next step. Always test the following stain removal solutions in an inconspicuous area first to make sure they won't damage your carpet.)

Synthetic Carpet

1.  Soak the area liberally with warm water (not hot).  Blot dry with paper towels.  Re-soak and re-dry area until the gravy has been removed from the carpet.

2.  Use a detergent solution by mixing one teaspoon of clear dish washing liquid with one cup of warm water.  Make sure the water is not hot.


Similar to "Crop Circles," the mysterious pictures that appear from time to time in fields, ketchup circles are beginning to appear more and more frequently in common households.  Normally ketchup circles, are well, circles.  But as you can clearly see above in one of the first documented cases of its kind, this is obviously more than a simple ketchup circle.  This appears to be some sort of alien ketchup face.

Reported sightings of ketchup faces in carpet so to speak, are rising at an alarming rate.  Even more frightening, they tend to be on the increase in households that contain several small children.
