How to remove coffee stains from wool carpet.

1. Act immediately!  Do not let the spot dry.  Using absorbent white paper or cotton towels, BLOT (do not rub) the area until no more liquid is transferred into your towels. If the spill is large, use a wet-vacuum to vacuum up all the coffee or tea possible. (Do not use your regular household vacuum, it will be ruined.   A wet-vacuum is designed specifically to vacuum up liquids.)

2. Apply cool water to the coffee or tea spill using a spray bottle, being careful not to over wet the carpet.  BLOT (do not rub) to absorb the spill and the water.  Repeat this process until no more color is transferred into your towels.
 
3. If the spot is still visible on the carpet, apply white vinegar with an eyedropper (do not use wine or cider vinegar).  BLOT (do not rub) gently after each application of white vinegar until no more color transfers onto your towel. 

4. Perform a final cool water rinse and a final BLOTTING.  Perform a final blotting of the area by placing a clean absorbent white cotton towel over the affected area and standing on it.

5. Sprinkle absorb-it over the affected area.  Cover an additional 2 inches of area around the coffee or tea spill with the absorb-it. Gently press the absorb-it into the affected area.

6. Allow the absorb-it to remain undisturbed overnight. 

7. When dry, thoroughly vacuum the area to remove all of the absorb-it. If any discoloration remains, consult with your Certified Wool Care Specialist.

Your results will vary depending on the type of coffee or tea and additional ingredients in it. 
  IMPORTANT!
ALWAYS read and follow the care instructions and any warnings provided by the carpet manufacturer.  Wool carpet with certain dyes/finishes may require special treatment.  If in doubt, contact SHOWCASE CARPET CLEANERS for advice or service first.  NEVER PROCEED with any stain removal without knowing the exact nature of the stain involved.  NEVER USE any retail product to remove stains from your wool carpet without seeking the advice of the manufacturer or you could void your warranty. The information contained in this spotting guide is provided without any guarantee or warranty as to results. 
Proceed at your own risk.
