How to remove stains from wool carpet.

You may have heard that to treat a red wine spot, you should pour white wine over it.  Don’t do it!  It is only a myth that this is an effective remedy. 

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.  It is helpful to stand on the towel after the majority of the wine has been blotted up.  If the spill is large, use a wet-vacuum to vacuum up all the wine possible. (Do not use your regular household vacuum, it will be ruined.   A wet-vacuum is designed specifically to vacuum up liquids.)

2. Sprinkle absorb-it over the area until you can no longer see the spill.  Cover an additional 2 inches of area around the spill with the absorb-it.  Gently press the absorb-it into the affected area

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

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


  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.
