Except for window cleaning, Windex can also be used as an effective carpet stain remover. If you don't have any carpet cleaning products on hand when a stain occurs, give a try to Windex. You would be surprised how well it works on tough stains, like blood or pet urine.
Here are the instructions, suggested by cleaner Clapham, how to use Windex on carpet stains:
- Mix 1 part of Windex with 1 part of warm water in a bowl.
- Make you cleaning job easier by blotting up as much of the stain as possible using paper towels.
- Dampen a rag with the Windex solution and wring the extra liquid out.
- Treat the stained area by touching the rag to it, then lifting. Never scrub to work the Windex into the stain, as this just will push the stain further into the fibers. Continue blotting until the stain vanish completely by rotating the rag to expose a fresh side when one gets soiled. Re-wet the rag with the cleaning solution, if needed.
- Pour cool water into another bowl. Dip a clean rag in the water, and rinse out the Windex solution by blotting motions. Keep blotting until the area is thoroughly wet and no more solution is left into the carpet.
- Press a dry towel to the carpet to remove as much moisture as you can, then let the carpet air dry.
If the stain has already dried, carpet cleaning Clapham team suggests to saturate it with Windex and use a soft scrub brush to work it out. After the stain have been loosened, follow the steps above to completely remove it.
