Cleaning carpet stains is not always an easy task, but in the case of drinks we have an important advantage, usually water-based, which makes it easier to generate a clean with simple attachments that we usually have in our homes.
It is always important to act quickly and with the correct method in case we spill any kind of drink on the carpet, for the “cordial red” the traces of dirt become worse if too much time passes between the time of the spill and the cleaning.
WHAT IS “CORDIAL RED” AND HOW DO YOU CLEAN IT?
“Cordial red” is a very popular alcoholic beverage that is composed not only of a liquor, but also of a certain amount of sugar plus some natural or synthetic flavorings.
This composition allows cordial’s alcohol to evaporate naturally in case of spillage, but the sugar and fruit can easily adhere to the surfaces, making cleaning the area more complex, and even more so if the irrigated liquid is allowed to dry.
To proceed with the effective cleaning of our carpet when spilling “cordial red” can be applied various techniques, the most important thing is to generate an immediate action when we realize the exposure of the tissue to this liquid, this will reduce the possibility of permanent damage, at this time we must go to the affected area with a dry cloth to with light touch absorb the largest amount of excess fluid, then we can proceed with the next step.
Before starting the “cordial red cleaning of the carpet”, we have to make a uniform mixture between one tablespoon of ammonia and one liter of water, in the case of wool rugs or other delicate material we have to replace the first ingredient with dishwasher soap, this will avoid deep damage to the fibers.
To test if this mixture is damaging to the carpet fibers you can proceed to place a little in a hidden corner to let it rest for a few minutes and see if it is feasible or not to use the solution created.
Then, the solution obtained with a sponge should be rubbed on the affected area, this should be done by applying slight pressure on the part of the carpet stained with “cordial red”, the excess moisture generated should be removed with a paper towel through the absorption process, it should be rotated so as not to water the unwanted dye as it will begin to come off the surface of the carpet.
If the area of the carpet stained with “cordial red” dries out and you have not yet finished fading the stain, the process should be repeated again, remember not to soak the sponge too much, it is enough to moisten the area, otherwise you could even damage the floor.
To finish the whole process of cleaning the carpet stained with “cordial red”, the area must be dried well to avoid the proliferation of bacteria that can lead to the existence of bad smells.
