Keep up with kid-created stains.
With winter in full swing, kids are spending more time inside doing crafts and playing games—and leaving plenty of messes for mom and dad. Learn how our powerful products make it easy to keep clean this season, even with kids.
Kids love to stick play dough and putty to everything—including carpets. Place a hot, damp cloth on top of the stuck-on mess and let it sit for an hour. Carefully brush the softened dough out of your carpet with a stiff brush, then use a Lightweight Vacuum to pick up the remaining pieces.
If you have crayon stuck in your carpet, use a dull knife to scrape away excess wax. Then place a brown paper bag over the mess, and iron over it with the lowest non-steam setting you can. The wax will stick to the bag. Use a Powerful Solution to remove any remaining stain.
Glitter glue is super fun, and super sticky. Spray a heavy-duty Solution directly onto the stain and let it sit. Slowly pour hot water from a kettle onto the spot then loosen the glue with a scrub brush until it flakes away. You can also use a good Steam Cleaner to loosen the glue. Pick up the bits of glue and repeat until it’s gone.
Sometime coloring outside of the lines is inevitable. While the spot is still wet, cover it with a professional strength Solution and let it sit. Blot the stain with a white cloth then repeat until the mess is gone. Then clean the area with water and pat it dry.
Juice like fruit punch is one of the toughest kid-created stains to remove. First, soak up as much liquid as you can. Then mix 1 gallon of warm water with 3 oz. of Solution and blot the mixture directly on the stain, working from the outside in. If the stain remains, continue to blot with a mix of water and white vinegar. Then rinse your carpet with cold water when the spot’s gone.
Melted chocolate and carpet don’t play well together. Use a dull knife to scrape away the mess then pick up the flakes with a Vacuum. Next, place a brown paper bag over the mess and iron over it with the lowest non-steam setting you can. The chocolate will stick to the bag. Use a Powerful Solution to remove any remaining dark spots.
Nothing gets stuck in your carpet the way gum does. Cover the spot with a generous amount of silicone lubricant and let it sit for a few minutes. Then scrub the stain with a small brush, being careful to stroke in one direction only. Repeat until the gum is completely removed then finish by cleaning the area with Solution.
Ketchup is a kid-approved condiment and a definite mess-maker. Start by scooping up the excess ketchup, being careful to not rub the mess into your carpet. Spray the stain with a heavy-duty Solution and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Then blot the spot with a white cloth and vacuum when it’s dry. Finish by rinsing the area with warm water.
These cleaners, detergents and solutions will help you tackle the toughest kid-created messes.
