In case your carpet is made from natural fibers, like wool, seagrass or sisal, always perform a patch test on some hidden part of your carpet first. This will ensure that this solution will not be damaging your carpet. Leave this solution on place for nearly 10 minutes. Now blot in order to remove as much of the solution as you possibly can.
Add 1/3 cup white vinegar to 2/3 cup of water. Now dab this solution onto the stain and allow it to work in. You need to leave this too for 10 minutes. This will continue your cleaning process as well as remove detergent residue, if any as else it may attract dirt.
Post this you need to rinse the area again with a sponge. Blot it now till it becomes dry. Or else, put a lot of kitchen towels on the stained part and leave this overnight. In the morning you would find your carpet dry as well as stain-free.
All this indicates that carpet coffee stain removal is not as difficult as it appears. In fact, it will always be an integral part of your carpet cleaning process. The key here is to act fast in order to ensure that removal of stains is easy as well as effective.
