How to Remove Jelly from a Carpet

Spilled jelly can turn into a nasty mess if you don't get it out immediately from your carpet. The sugars into the jelly creates a stickiness that seems to attract everything, and it is very likely your children or pets to spread that sticky mess around the house if the stain sits undisturbed for enough time.
To remove the jelly from your carpet, follow the steps suggested by carpet cleaning Clapham team.
  1. Remove as much jelly from the carpet as possible using a dull butter knife.
  2. Pour warm water into a spray bottle and spray the affected area lightly. Use a clean cloth to blot the stain. Avoid rubbing as this can cause the jelly to spread and seep further into the carpet fibers.
  3. Apply a solution of 2 cups warm water and 1 tablespoon of liquid dish detergent to the stain using a sponge. Keep blotting at the stained area until it is completely cleaned. If the carpet gets too soapy, pour a little warm water, blot it up and continue dabbing with the sponge. If the jelly stain remains, mix together 2/3 cup of rubbing alcohol and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.
  4. Rinse the sponge to remove the detergent solution, and dip it into the vinegar-alcohol mixture. Apply the new solution to the stained area by blotting the caret with the sponge. Once the jelly stain is removed, rinse the treated area of the carpet and let it dry. Carpet cleaning Clapham suggests you to use a fan or a blow dryer to speed up the process of drying.
  5. After the carpet has dried, vacuum it to remove any residue left behind from the cleaning.
