Mild Stain Cleaning


Ammonia can be used only when cleaning a spot and not for cleaning the whole carpet surface.

After putting the ammonia cleaning solution, mix 2 teaspoon of mild dishwashing detergent to 2 cups of lukewarm water. Blot the stain again with the use of either sponge or clean cloth.

Pour the solution made in a spray bottle and spray it onto the affected area. Let it there for approximately 5 minutes. Place a clean soft cloth over the stained area. Using an iron which is on the low heat level, used it with the cloth and do some straight motion quickly. The hot temperature that reacts with the ammonia will loosen the stain.
