The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and all across the country friends and family will be gathering together for fireworks and cookouts. Nothing can kill the mood of an Independence Day celebration like a hot dog rolling off your plate and staining your carpet with bright yellow mustard, or a hamburger falling ketchup side up onto your couch. However, you don’t have to keep these falling food mishaps ruin the party. Here are some tips to help you clean up these condiments:

To clean ketchup out of your carpet, you’ll first want to dab the area with a cloth and cool water. Then, make a cleaning solution of liquid dish soap and warm water. Use a clean, white cloth to apply this solution to the stain. Repeat these steps until the stain is gone. You can follow these same steps to remove ketchup stains from your upholstery.

To get mustard out of your carpet, scrap or blot the excess liquid up as soon as it falls, but be sure not to spread it or press it further into the carpet. Then, take a clean, white cloth, and try to blot up as much of the stain as possible. You can then use the same cleaning solution as the one listed above for ketchup. Continue to add the solution and blot until the stain is removed. Because of the bright yellow color of mustard, this stain might be tougher to remove than others, so if this cleaning process doesn’t work, you can try a mixture of white vinegar and water to clean it up.

Don’t let spilled condiments ruin your festivities. Instead, follow these simple cleaning solutions to clean your carpet and get on with the party. If these stubborn stains decide to stick around despite your best efforts, just give us a call at Premium Care Solutions in Greenville, NC, and we’d be happy to help you get your carpet looking as good as new.
