How To Clean Spaghetti Sauce On Carpet
To clean spaghetti sauce 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.)
1. Use a detergent solution by mixing one teaspoon of clear dish washing liquid with one cup of cool water.
2. Create an ammonia solution by mixing one tablespoon of clear household ammonia (3% solution) with 1/2 cup cool water. (WARNING: Never mix ammonia with chlorine bleach as it will create extremely hazardous fumes!)
To clean pasta sauce off your carpet please mix together the solution listed in step one. Apply the detergent mixture to the stain using a clean sponge and a blotting motion. Gently dab the solution on and blot if off with paper towels. Rinse area with plain water.
If the spaghetti sauce stain has not been completely removed, then mix together the second solution. Blot it on with a sponge and blot it off with paper towels. Repeat the process until the stain is gone. Rinse the area with plain water.
