How To Remove Vinegar From Carpet





To clean vinegar 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.  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.


While vinegar is actually great for REMOVING stains, in it's pure form, if allowed to sit for very long it can damage some types of carpet. Vinegar is always substantially diluted when used to remove certain types of stains.

Get it up by dabbing at it with paper towels. Don't rub it as you can damage the fibers in your carpet and spread the stain. Just blot until you've removed as much of the vinegar as possible.

Now mix the solution listed in step one. Using a clean sponge, dab the solution onto the stain, drying with a clean cloth. Dab the solution on then blot it up. Repeat until the you can no longer smell the vinegar.
