Spills happen. Whether it’s a rogue glass of red wine, a muddy paw print, or a mystery stain that suddenly appears like a magic trick gone wrong, carpet stains can transform a pristine floor into a scene of domestic disaster. But fear not, fellow Corkonians! RJ Carpet Cleaning Cork is here to be your stain-busting superhero, ready to vanquish even the most stubborn of carpet catastrophes.

The Stain Slayers’ Arsenal:

Before we dive into specific stain-conquering strategies, let’s arm ourselves with the right tools. Here’s your essential stain-removal kit:

  • White, absorbent cloths: Microfiber cloths are ideal, but any clean, lint-free cloth will do.
  • Blotter paper: For those extra-thirsty spills.
  • Mild dish soap: A gentle cleanser for most everyday stains.
  • Baking soda: A natural deodorizer and stain absorber.
  • White vinegar: A mild acid that can tackle certain stains, like coffee and ink.
  • Clean spray bottle: For applying cleaning solutions.

Stain-Specific Strategies:

Now, let’s get down to business! Here are some tips for tackling common carpet stains:

Red Wine: Act fast! Blot up as much excess liquid as possible with a clean cloth. Then, mix a tablespoon of dish soap with a cup of lukewarm water and gently sponge the stain. Rinse with clean water and blot dry.

Coffee or Tea: The sooner you treat it, the better. Blot up excess liquid, then sprinkle baking soda on the stain and let it sit for 15 minutes. Vacuum up the baking soda and repeat if necessary.

Pet Accidents: First, remove any solid waste. For urine, blot up as much liquid as possible with a clean cloth. Mix one part white vinegar with two parts water in a spray bottle and mist the affected area. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then blot with a clean cloth and rinse with clean water. For enzymatic cleaning, consider a professional carpet cleaning service.

Chewing Gum: Freeze the gum with an ice pack for 15-20 minutes. Once hardened, carefully scrape it off with a dull knife or spoon. Avoid rubbing, as this can spread the gum further.


  • Always test any cleaning solution on an inconspicuous area of the carpet first to ensure it doesn’t cause discoloration.
  • Blot, don’t rub! Rubbing can spread the stain and make it worse.
  • Work from the outside of the stain inwards to prevent it from spreading.
  • If you’re unsure about how to treat a particular stain, or if the stain is large or persistent, it’s always best to call in the professionals at RJ Carpet Cleaning Cork.
