Get Candy Out of Carpet


How you get candy out of carpet depends on the type of candy and how long it has been there. Clean up any spills quickly and they may not become stains. Assuming you discover the candy in the carpeting long after the fact, here some thing to do to get it out.

Blot up liquids using white cotton cloth or paper towels.

Scrape out dried chucks using a dull knife or the edge of a spoon.

Try water to remove any remaining candy stains, applying small amounts and blotting this up repeatedly using white cotton cloth or plain white paper towels.

Now, if there still is something there, mix a few drops of dish detergent in a few ounces of warm water and apply this a bit at a time. Work it in gently (no heavy rubbing) and soak it up with that white cloth or paper towels. Repeat until you don't see any of the stain or substance transferring to the cloth. Rinse the area with water several times, blotting it up between applications. Dry the area quickly, first blotting out the moisture, and the putting a fan nearby to blow over the spot.

Some candy will have coloring that can cause permanent stains. You can call a professional to get advice or to see if they might be able to do something more. Otherwise you can also visit the following page for options:
