Ah, summertime—the season of sunny days, outdoor adventures, and delightful memories. But along with all the fun and excitement, summertime brings its fair share of stains and spills that can leave our homes looking less than pristine. Whether it’s grass stains from a lively game of tag or ice cream drip from a refreshing treat, these pesky stains can be a real buzzkill. But fear not! With the help of a trusted residential cleaning company, you can bid farewell to those stubborn summertime stains and restore your home to its former glory.
In this article, we’ll unveil a treasure trove of solutions to tackle common summertime stains, from fabrics to carpets and beyond. So, get ready to say goodbye to the evidence of summertime mishaps and hello to a clean and fresh living space. Let’s dive in and discover the secrets to a stain-free summer!
Maybe you have a child who has been known to let a popsicle slip through their fingers and onto your carpet. If this happens, stay calm and grab an empty spray bottle. Fill it with a mixture of half water, half hydrogen peroxide. Spray the stain with the mixture to dampen it. Let the solution stay on the stain for about ten minutes, then work on it with a carpet brush. Finish the job by wiping the spot with a damp sponge.
Muddy footprints are a sure sign your kids are having a fun summer. But, you don’t want the remnants of their fun all over your carpet. So give the mud a chance to dry completely. Next, run your vacuum cleaner over the caked mud. If there’s any mud leftover, mix a teaspoon of mild dishwashing soap with one cup of warm water. Spray the stain with the solution and blot it with a paper towel.
Soda Pop Stains
Kids and adults have been known to enjoy a cold glass of soda or two in the summertime. That’s peachy, until it ends up on your carpet. To clean soda stains, blot at the fresh stain with a cloth to see how much you can soak up right away. Next, mix ¼ teaspoon of mild laundry detergent with a ½ cup of water. Pour this solution onto the stain, wait a few moments, then blot it with a clean towel.
During the summertime you may cut your grass every week or even every few days. Kids play in the yard, then track grass onto your carpet, leaving stains behind. To get rid of them, put several drops of mild laundry detergent onto a moist towel. Next, blot the stain with the towel until the spot is gone.
Summertime and sweat stains on clothing go hand in hand. But, buying new shirts every week can get expensive. Instead, pour distilled vinegar onto an armpit stain and rub a teaspoon of salt into it. Leave your shirt out in the sun to dry before putting it into the washing machine for a traditional wash.
