Tonight, kids all over the country will head out to trick or treat, and tomorrow, homes will be filled with empty candy wrappers and crumbs. Sticky chocolate fingers and dropped lollipops can really do a number on your home’s carpet. So, here are some candy cleaning tips to help you out:

  • For chocolate stains, it’s best to clean these up before they can dry. However, that’s not always possible. So, if you find a dried chocolate stain on your carpet, use a butter knife to scrape up as much as you can. Then, vacuum up the crumbs. Next, cover the stain with paper towels, and use an iron on its lowest setting to cover the stain. The chocolate will melt and adhere to the paper towels. 
  • Sticky lollipops can also wreak havoc on your carpet. If you find sticky candy residue on your home’s carpet, spray the stain with water and use a butter knife to scrape up any loose pieces. Next, wet a few paper towels with water and dish soap and firmly press them over the stain. Let the stain sit for about 15 minutes, then wet a paper towel with a mixture of 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Soak the stain with this and then blot up any excess moisture.

Halloween is a fun holiday for many. Don’t let candy stains ruin your good time. For stains you can’t treat on your own, give us a call at Premium Care Solutions in Wilson, NC.
