How to Remove Stains From Beige Carpet

Cleaning your carpets involves regularly vacuuming and spot cleaning. If you have a light-coloured carpet such as beige, you may find yourself spot cleaning more often because the stains are more visible on a light rug than a dark one. Use mild household cleaners to remove stains and avoid damaging your carpet. Regardless of your cleaning method, always test it on a small area of your beige carpet to see if it will damage or discolour the carpet.

  1. 1

    Mix 1/4 tsp liquid dish detergent with 1 cup lukewarm water.

  2. 2

    Apply the soap solution to the carpet stain with a cloth. Dab rather than rub the carpet, as rubbing will spread the stain or push it deeper into the carpet fibres where it will be harder to remove.

  3. 3

    If the stain is still visible, mix 1 cup distilled white vinegar with 2 cups water.

  4. 4

    Apply the vinegar solution to the stain with a clean cloth. Be careful not to rub the stain. Blot the vinegar solution with a clean cloth.

  5. 5

    If you can still see the stain on the beige carpet, mix 1 tbsp ammonia with 1 cup water.

  6. 6

    Blot the ammonia-based solution onto the stain with a cloth.

  7. 7

    Mist the area with clear water from a spray bottle. Do not soak the carpet.

  8. 8

    Dry the area thoroughly with a clean cloth or towel.

  9. 9

    Repeat Steps 7 and 8 until all the cleaning solutions are rinsed from the carpet.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not use bleach-based products to clean your beige carpet as this could permanently damage the colour.
  • Use white cloths so you can see the stain transfer from the beige carpet to the cloth.
