Ah, the holidays – relatives are coming to visit, you have parties to host, and there’s decorating to do. The last thing you want to worry about are pesky carpet stains, but let’s face it: spills happen. And that’s why we created this handy guide to removing holiday-specific carpet stains you may encounter over the next few months. All you’ll need are some standard household supplies and a little bit of patience and persistence. You’ve got this!
Nothing warms you up on a cold winter day like a steaming mug of hot chocolate. On the other hand, nothing casts a gloomy shadow over the holidays like hot chocolate stains on your carpet. But don’t freak out if this classic holiday beverage finds its way onto your beautiful light-colored carpet. Hot chocolate stains are pretty simple to remove.
A real live Christmas tree is a beautiful addition to any home, and you just can’t beat that fresh pine scent, but tree sap on the carpets? Not what you planned for, I know. Don’t worry – this one’s not as hard as you may think.
We all love the look and smell of scented candles, and during the holidays, we may be lighting candles for a menorah, advent wreath, or kinara. Whatever the reason, there is a possibility that candle wax could end up on our carpet. The good news is that removing candle wax from carpeting is surprisingly simple. You’ll just need some thick paper and a hot iron.
It’s time to prep for that holiday party you’re hosting, but when you push your furniture into more party-friendly locations, you find that they’ve left “dents” in the carpet and no amount of massaging will revive the depressed fibers. No problem!
Take an ice cube, place it on the dented carpet, and allow it to melt. As the fibers absorb the water, they’ll perk right up. Give the carpet a quick swipe with your hand to fluff it up a little more, and you’re all set.
Life happens, but carpet stains don’t have to. Check out LifeProof carpets from MyFlooring. They have superior stain resistance built into every fiber, so you won’t need to stress over the occasional holiday spill.
