How to Remove Toothpaste Stains from a Carpet
Hi, my name's Joanna Cahill. I'm the owner of Healthy Home Cleaning. We're a green cleaning business based in Asheville, North Carolina, that specializes in the use of nontoxic cleaning products. Today, I'm going to talk to you about how to remove toothpaste stains from your carpet. Okay, so, what we're going to need today is a dull knife - kitchen knife. I'm using Simple Green Concentrated Cleaner, excellent for removing stains from carpet, and a deodorizer, nontoxic. And, we're going to use a spray bottle. You can get these at most hardware stores. Preferably, you're going to want to use one that has these markings for measurements for easy dilution. For Simple Green, we're going to go ahead and use one part Simple Green, to 30 parts water. Don't worry too much about the measurements being exact. A little bit of Simple Green, mostly water. We're going to take our knife and try to get up as much of the toothpaste as possible with the knife, all that solid bit on there. Hopefully, you haven't stepped on your carpet and mashed it all in, but even if you have, try to get up as much solid as you can. Go ahead and wipe that off. After we've got up in our solid, we're going to go ahead and spray the Simple Green Solution onto the carpet. And, we're going to take our clean cloth, and we're going to go ahead and blot the carpet. Now, I emphasize "blot", because we don't want to rub our cloth into the carpet, as that can further cement stains, and rub them into the fibers of the carpet. We're going to blot, and the blotting motion is going to pick up that solution, and absorb it into our cloth to remove that stain. So, go ahead and repeat that process a couple of times, spraying the solution, and blotting it until the stain is completely gone. It shouldn't take much. And, we've got our stains gone, beautiful. This is Joanna Cahill with Healthy Home Cleaning, and I want to thank you for watching how to remove toothpaste stains from your carpet.
