Feeding a cute, little baby can be adorable but it can come with a lot of challenges too. It isn’t exactly as easy as you may think it is. It actually requires a lot of efforts as not all babies would cooperate with you and eat peacefully. Oftentimes you are bound to be left with a mess consisting of spilled baby food on your carpet. This isn’t a pretty sight as the baby food can cause an ugly stain on your beautiful carpet. Finding the right way to clean this up is important if you want to remove the unpleasant baby food stain on your carpet.
Solving this problem can be tough too, especially if you don’t know what the proper way is. If you have experienced this problem in your home, don’t panic yet. Here are some easy steps that you can follow to effectively clean up the baby food spills on your carpet.
1. Scrape or remove the baby food spilled on your carpet right away. Use a dull knife and carefully remove the baby food spill so that you will be able to effectively address the stain that it has left behind. Not being careful with this task though can lead to you spreading the stain even further, so always remember to pay close attention while doing this.
2. Next, you’ll need to make a cleaning solution for the baby food stain. Mixing some white vinegar which you can find in the kitchen with some water will do the trick. One part of the former with four parts of the latter will be a good combination that will produce an potent stain remover for the baby food stain. Once you have the cleaning solution ready, pour some on the stained area and let it set for a couple of minutes.
3. Now, get a clean white cloth and start blotting the stained portion of the carpet. This will make the baby food stain on your carpet transfer gradually from the carpet fibers and onto the clean white cloth. Repeat this step until you have finally removed all of the baby food stain. It may not get removed on the first try so the key is to persevere.
4. Rinse the area with some water to help remove any excess of the cleaning solution from the carpet. Then, dry it using a wet/dry vac and one dry you may resume to use your carpet again.
