How To Remove Tea From Carpet


Tea On Carpet


To clean tea 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 cold water.  Blot dry with paper towels.  Re-soak and re-dry area until the tea has been removed from the carpet.

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

3.  Use a dry cleaning solvent such as Carbona or Energine. Dry cleaning solvent should never be used on polyester.


Ah yes, tea time.  Earl Grey, crumpets, and a bit of Masterpiece Theater.  Ugh, I'll take coffee and news thank you very much, but whatever floats your boat.

I once knew someone that would take ordinary crackers and slather butter all over them.  They would then take this heinous creation and dip it in tea, letting it soak for a bit like a cookie dipped in milk.  Needless to say, witnessing this grotesque act pretty much ruined any desire to drink tea that I ever had.  Ugh!
