Keeping Your Business Immaculate

When we installed a suggestion box in the entryway of our business, I was amazed to see how many customers responded. After we started going through the suggestions, we realized that there was one request that we kept seeing--the need for a cleaner store. We decided to make a few changes to keep our place cleaner, including hiring a professional cleaning service. The results were incredible. Customers started to comment on how clean our place was, instead of the need for dramatic changes. We also noticed a boost in our sales because customers felt more comfortable in our store.

Tips For Removing Carpet Stains

by Lee Porter

Having a stain on your carpet is extremely frustrating because it is going to be a stain that you look at every day. As a result, you are going to want to make sure that you take every precaution when it comes to keeping your carpet stain free. However, even the best precautions can't offset a elbow sending a precariously perched glass of red wine astray. Here are some tips for removing specific types of carpet stains.

1. How to Get Rid of Powdered Juice Drinks

Your kids probably love the juice drinks that you make by pouring powder into a glass of cold water and mixing. However, you probably don't love them because they are able to stain your carpet a variety of bright colors and are difficult to remove. If one of your children violates your "no powdered drinks in the living room" rule and spills his or her drink, you are going to need to figure out how to get rid of that stain before it sets. First, take a white towel that you don't care about and use it to blot the stain. Get up as much of the excess moisture that you can. Try not to rub the stain because doing so risks forcing the liquid further into the carpet and totally saturating it.

Next, take a quarter of a cup of white vinegar and a tablespoon of dish soap. Add both of these to a spray bottle. Fill the rest of the spray bottle's volume up with water and shake so that everything is evenly mixed. Then, start spraying the stain down. Your goal is to totally saturate the area where the stain is with these stain removing tools. Once the area has been totally saturated, wait five to ten minutes. This will allow the mixture to set.

Finally, take another white towel that you don't care about and start blotting the stain once again. The mixture that you used to spray the stain down should have loosened the stain to the point where simply blotting it will be effective.

2. How to Get Rid of Ink

If you spill ink on your carpeting, you are going to need to take a clean rag and soak it in isopropyl alcohol with the highest alcohol percentage possible. This will be used to help loosen the stain. Then, start using this cloth to dab the stain. You don't want to rub the stain or else you risk it spreading. If the stain is not coming down, put that same alcohol into a spray bottle and soak the stain with it. If this is not working because the alcohol content is too low, try using white vinegar or white wine itself. Allow any liquids that you put on the stain to set. Eventually, you will be able to remove the stain using a cloth.
