Follow this simple guide to get your carpet clean.
Avoid rubbing the fresh stain as you might end up spreading it further.
Step 1: Scrape the Residue
Before actually cleaning it, it’s better to remove the residue. If the cake residue has dried, use a butter knife to scrape it. Thoroughly scoop all the cake frosting from the carpet. This will make the cleaning task easy.
Step 2: Dampen the Stain
It’s better to dampen the area, so the stain smoothens and comes off easily. Now, use a couple of paper towels to blot the area.
Step 3: Apply a Cleaning Solution
Prepare a cleaning solution by mixing 1 cup of vinegar in 4 cups of warm water. Vinegar will break the stains. Use a sponge to dab the stained area with this solution and let it rest for 20 minutes.
Step 4: Blot the Stains
Blot the stained area again. Use a couple of paper towels or a clean cloth to blot the stain. Repeat this step till the frosting stain comes off completely.
Step 5: Rub the Area
Pour some warm water on the area and rub the stains with a cloth thoroughly. Then blot again.
Step 6: Vacuum the Carpet
Use a vacuum cleaner to dry the carpet completely.
There you go! It’s that easy! After you try this method, you won’t have to worry about cleaning those unwanted cake stains from your carpet any more.
