Removing red stains from your rug can be tricky, even for expert rug cleaners. Both synthetic and natural red stains present unique challenges, and it’s essential to determine the type of stain and rug fiber before attempting to remove them.
Hi there, It’s Ruthie at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott.
This blog post will explore the different types of red stains and the best methods for removing them.
Removing Synthetic Stains
Synthetic stains, such as Kool-Aid, lipstick, colored juices, and liquid cough medicine, can be removed using a reducing agent.
Mix the reducer according to the manufacturer’s instructions and apply it to the stained area. Allow it to sit for the recommended time, and then use a steam cleaner or damp cloth to remove the stain.
It’s essential to take caution and not use extreme temperatures, as this can cause color loss. If you have doubts about your ability to remove the stain, it’s best to hire a professional rug cleaner.
Removing Natural Stains
Natural stains, such as tomato-based spills, ketchup, pasta sauce, and red wine, are difficult to remove and require an oxidizing agent, such as hydrogen peroxide.
Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines strictly and use a steam cleaner or damp cloth to remove the stain. It’s important to avoid extreme temperatures and seek expert help if the rug has been stained for a long time or if other chemicals have been applied to it in the past.
Removing Blood Stains
Removing blood stains can be difficult, but taking care of them as soon as possible is essential. Avoid hot or warm water, as extreme temperatures can cause the blood to clot.
Use cold water and grease-cutting liquid dish soap, and apply a lot of moisture to soak up the stain thoroughly. Use a dry white cloth or paper towel to blot the stain, and transfer the blood to a cloth or paper towel. Expect to repeat this process several times, as frustration is inevitable when removing bloodstains from the rug. If the rug cannot be cleaned, it’s best to hire a professional rug cleaning service.
