How to remove coffee stains from carpet

Coffee stains can be removed easily using this method. The stain can be removed much more easily if not allowed to dry.  Blot the stain with a clean white cloth to remove any excess liquid.  Mix a teaspoon of a good dishwashing detergent, such as Dawn, with a cup of lukewarm water.  Sponge the area with the dishwashing solution, then blot again with your clean white cloth. Next, mix 1/3 cup of white vinegar with 2/3 cup of lukewarm water.  Once again sponge the area with this solution, and blot again with a clean white cloth. Rinse with clean water, and launder as soon as possible, following the care label instructions. Carpeting can be cleaned using the above method and ingredients.

  1. Mix one teaspoon of a mild ph balanced detergent (a mild non alkaline non bleaching detergent) with a cup of lukewarm water
  2. Blot
  3. Mix one third cup of white household vinegar with two thirds cup of water
  4. Blot
  5. Sponge with clean water
  6. Blot

Note: Always test an inconspicuous area for colorfastness, etc. before treating the exposed area. Also note that certain stains are permanent .

Coffee Stains sometimes require a more professional approach.  I suggest using any professional strength carpet spot remover that is specifically used for tannin removal.  Coffee, tea and other like items have a specific chemical compound that require a tannin remover.  Always use our products according to directions.
