You know those cute crafts that you proudly hang on your fridge? Yeah, it was a mess making them. Arts and crafts time with kids can leave a disaster in your home. Even if you’re having some adult crafting time on your own, the mess afterwards can still be pretty serious. But, don’t let the mess cramp your creative time, because we have some helpful cleaning hacks for you:

  • One of the messiest parts of arts and crafts time is the glue. If you get glue on your carpet, the first thing you’ll want to do is use a paper towel to blot up as much of the excess glue as you can. Next, spot test a small bit of your carpet with acetone nail polish remover. If it doesn’t damage your carpet, then use a cotton ball to apply it to the stain. Then, use a cleaning solution with one teaspoon of ammonia and one cup of warm water to dab onto the stain. When you’re done, dry the carpet with a clean towel.
  • What about glitter?! That stuff gets everywhere! If you get glitter in your carpet, you’ll want to vacuum over the spot several times. Then, you can use a lint roller or masking tape wrapped around your hand to get up any stubborn pieces of glitter that are left behind. 
  • If you get play dough on your carpet, you can use a stiff brush to remove any that is already dried. Next, vacuum up the spot to pick up any remaining loose bits. Once you’ve removed the dough, you can blot the carpet with rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide (use only on white carpets) to remove any stains and/or residue leftover.

If your house has turned into an arts and crafts disaster zone, don’t worry, because we’re here to help! Give the carpet cleaning professionals at Premium Care Solutions in Greenville, NC a call today!
