Fall is finally here, and Halloween is quickly approaching. For most of us, this holiday means funny costumes, trick-or-treating, bobbing for apples, and doing “the monster mash”. Unfortunately, for some of us with “little ones”, it also means unsightly candy stains on your carpet. Well, lucky for you, here are some helpful techniques you can use to get rid of the icky mess those lollipops and gumdrops may leave behind.
As soon as you spot a sugary blob attached to your carpet, you should:
- Scrape or blot up excess.
- Apply detergent with a damp towel. Blot; don’t rub.
- Apply water with a damp towel.
- Blot; finish with a weighted pad of towels.
