It’s basically impossible to avoid staining your carpets or frabric sofas, especially if you eat in front of the TV or you dine in the living room. Even simple snacks, if they are oil fried, leave stains hard to remove from upholstered furniture or carpets. But I found a solution to get rid of these hard-to-remove grease stains.
The most effective detergent to get rid of grease stains on carpets and upholstery is the liquid dish detergent. There is no need to buy sophisticated and expensive cleaning solutions.
– a cloth
– warm water
– dish detergent
Mix the above solutions and moisten the cloth in it. Start rubbing the stained area to de-grease the fibers from the fabric.
If you’re facing old grease stains, you have to insist on the problem area, rubbing harder.
If stains are fresh, and by fresh I mean “hot”, just take a paper towel and absorb all the excess grease.
Now, use the same mixture to rub the stain. Right after that, pour some vinegar on the stain to refresh the area, then use a dry cloth to dry the wet area by rubbing thoroughly. You can also use a hair dryer to dry the area. You should keep in mind that drying the stain with the hair dryer could leave traces on the upholstery.
