How do I remove cranberry sauce or red wine from carpets?

Oh no, your favorite aunt just spilled an entire plate of cranberry sauce on your dining room carpet!!! What should you do?
You can often avoid professional carpet cleaning when those accidental spills occur by following these simple steps.

First … be prepared.
Spills happen. Usually at the most inconvenient times.

What do I need to have on hand for treatment?
You'll need to have these few common household items on hand to assist in the cleanup:

  • Spray mist bottle filled with cold tap water
  • Several bath or hand towels
  • Mild detergent (dish soap or laundry)
  • 3% Solution Hydrogen Peroxide (available at most grocery stores or drug stores)

What are the steps:

  1. Remove as much of the spilled substance from the carpet as possible.
  2. Use a clean towel or several towels to soak up the liquid. Be sure to blot up and down to avoid spreading the spill.
  3. Mist the area with cold water until a sufficient level of saturation is achieved.
  4. Use a clean towel to absorb the liquid again.
  5. Repeat this procedure, alternating between cold water and towel absorption.
  6. Eventually the stain will no longer transfer to the towel.
  7. Empty the mist bottle and fill with hot water and a small amount of detergent.
  8. Repeat the mist and absorb procedure.
  9. When the carpet appears clean, empty the mist bottle and fill with cold tap water.
  10. Mist and absorb again to remove as much detergent residue as possible.
  11. Finally, empty the mist bottle and spray a small amount of the hydrogen perioxide solution on the freshly cleaned spot. This will help remove any remaining residue.
  12. Let dry thoroughly.
  13. Repeat step number 11 if any residue remains.
